AKA: We did it!
If I learned one thing (and really, I learned much), it’s that a dog’s obedience is tremendously more about the human issuing the commands than about the canine receiving (or not) them. Sissy is welcome to move up to the next level, but we’ll have to look at our schedule for September before we sign up.
You can’t tell, but that’s Sissy doing her “stay.” I think she was the only dog in the class to do the “walk twice around” stay without treat motivation. That offsets the fact that DOWN still doesn’t interest her at all.
That’s the certificate and the toy Sissy selected as her prize. She has trouble making most squeaky toys squeak, but she did proudly tote her prize around!
Oh – and Abby passed too, so all bets are off. The whole class passed, actually.
Don’t forget to check out the other Dogs on Thursday too. Happy Little Friday!
