Training dogs takes a lot of time, patience and discipline, and often results in sweet rewards. This page is a place where Nutmeg members can give themselves and their GSPs a well deserved pat on the back (or head!). If you would like your canine friend's wins, titles, and other accomplishments to be recognized here, please submit the Kudos Information Sheet and a digital image (must be in .jpg format) to the Nutmeg Woofmaster for posting.
