Mia's class has not met for a few weeks...

Mia and the family are seeing what it is like to train without having class the last few weeks. We have been "on break" and are using this time to review old classes and see what commands we need to focus on. Today we worked on really reliable recall. She recalled that command right away because she got a really good treat, some sandwich turkey meat, for coming.

Last Friday we all went to graduation which was great fun. There were eight teams graduating and the dogs and people were on their best behavior. On Thursday Bonnie went to Southdale with Team Training and helped with the training. The dog owners are expected to show how they can safely work with their dogs in public, and actually get tested on this after a few months. It seemed that everyone was well on their way to a successful team experience.
