  "This is not a situation for a child of Harry Howard, though she kneltin the presence, and before the throne, of her sovereign. Behold, mydear Cecilia, the natural consequences of this rebellion! It scattersdiscord in their ranks; and, by its damnable leveling principles,destroys all distinction of rank among themselves; even these rash boysknow not where obedience is due!"
  "Here appears to be some mistake." said Barnstable, who participated,however, in no trifling degree, in the embarrassment of the abashedboy; "but, like all other mistakes on such subjects, it can be explainedaway, I suppose. Mr. Griffith, it remains for you to speak--damn it,man," he whispered, "you are as dumb as a codfish--I am sure so finea woman is worth a little fair-weather talk:--you are muter than afour-footed beast--even an ass can bray!"
  The roaring of a tempest was not louder than the shout that burst fromhis followers, who continued their cheers, peal on peal, until the veryroof of the edifice appeared to tremble with their vibrations. Numerousdark and shaggy heads were seen moving around the passage; some casedin the iron-bound caps of the frigate's boarders, and others glitteringwith the brazen ornaments of her marine guard. The sight of the latterdid not fail to attract the eye of Manual, who rushed among the throng,and soon reappeared, followed by a trusty band of his own men, who tookpossession of the post held by the soldiers of Borroughcliffe, while thedialogue was continued between the leaders of the adverse parties.

In recent years, a new form of Obedience competition, known as Rally Obedience, has become very popular. It was originally devised by Charles L. "Bud" Kramer from the obedience practice of "doodling" - doing a variety of interesting warmup and freestyle exercises. Rally Obedience is designed to be a "bridge", or intermediate step, between the CGC certification and traditional Obedience competition.
With your dog sitting at your side, set off and give the command “heel” (so that your dog is aware you are about to move). If the dog gets ahead, stop and encourage it back to your side with a titbit. Repeat. To begin with, stop every three to four paces to praise your dog and give a titbit. Do not use your voice unless your dog is at your side. You can also practise this off-lead in a secure area – this makes you work really hard at keeping your dog with you, rather than relying on the lead.
  "We will hasten our departure, Mr. Barnstable," said Griffith, sighingheavily, and rousing himself, as if from a trance. "These rude sightscannot but appall the ladies. You will please, sir, to direct the orderof our march to the shore. Captain Manual has charge of our prisoners,who must all be secured, to answer for an equal number of our owncountrymen."

The leash or lead is used to connect the dog to the handler, lead the dog, as well as to control the dog in urban areas. Most communities have laws which prohibit dogs from running at large. They may be made of any material such as nylon, metal or leather. A six-foot length is commonly used for walking and in training classes, though leashes come in lengths both shorter and longer. A long line (also called a lunge line) can be 3 metres (ten feet) or more in length, and are often used to train the dog to come when called from a distance.


Remember that training is an ongoing process. You will never be completely finished. It is important to keep working on obedience training throughout the life of your dog. People who learn a language at a young age but stop speaking that language may forget much of it as they grow older. The same goes for your dog: use it or lose it. Running through even the most basic tricks and commands will help them stay fresh in your dog's mind. Plus, it's a great way to spend time with your dog.
