Bella's progress for nov obed and beg nov
« on: May 01, 2011, 07:26:34 PM »
Went to a Match today and did 2 runs each for nov obed and beg nov.  I have been working really hard with Bella to resolve her off leash issues.  We have added tennis balls for focus and I have to say what a huge difference this has been.  We tried this in the beginning when I first started with my trainer, but she was into the tennis balls but not as motivated and focused as she is now.  She was so good for all 4 runs even the 1 min and 3 min sit and down (there was so many distractions and water from a spinkler systems hitting her) that several people came to me and said what a great job she did.  Both judges said her focus was perfect.  She did a beautiful job.  It was so nice to hear this.   I know she's a good dog and she can do this.  We are going to a show middle of May to see if we can get our Beg Nov title and then continue with matches until I feel she is ready for nov obed.   Cant wait.  Im so proud of her.
