Obedience Class 2

Tonight Annie seemed a little brighter. She is still not retrieving over jumps like she does at home.

We worked round robin style...practiced one obstacle if they were successful, moved on. Don't keep on hammering at the same thing when they do well. Annie's recalls were awesome tonight as were her stays. Her heeling (with string) was pretty decent too.

Back to Obedience

Annie and I have resumed our obedience class. I'm not sure Annie is too happy about being back at Cathy's-she sulked most of the time we were there. Oh well, she'll get over it.

Tonights exercies: Practised throwing. We learned how to hold and throw the dumbbell (hold it by the ends not the middle).

Recall/Drop: If they're not dropping, go closer, walk toward them.

Annie's retrieves and long jump were less than stellar.
Her stays were OK (she broke when she saw me again).
