Does anyone on here have a TDI dog or something similar? I have decided that I want to get a puppy as my first "conformation" dog, and so looking at breeder's websites... It looks like I will be waiting somewhere around a yr for a show quality puppy from a good breeder. In the mean time I thought it would be fun to teach keeda tricks. Then I had the idea that if I was going to teach her tricks, I might as well do something useful with them. So, I'm setting a goal, that this time next year I want Keeda to take the TDI test. I think she would love to be a TDI dog! I was just wondering if anyone can give me any insight? I know they take a test similiar to the AKC CGC, and I emailed an evaluator in my area to find out if there are any classes in the area they recommend. I just thought of this second question this morning, and whatever the answer is I still want her to become a TDI dog, but since it's all volunteer, do you think the hours I spend with her in hospitals and such will count as volunteer hours for school(need them when I apply for medschool... or grad if I go that way)?
