Lucy graduated from Intermediate class last night - yippee!!! I was so proud of her. In order to pass, she had to perform several tasks:
Sit-stay with distraction (ball bouncing and rolling about 6 inches from her)
Sit-stay from a distance (about 50 ft.)
Sit-stay from a distance with distraction (a volunteer calling her to come to him) and then heel to me past him.
Sit-stay from a distance to heel to me and around to my left side and sit.
Meet and greet a stranger without breaking a sit-stay
She did everything perfectly! She really stayed focused on me and my instructions t her last night. It was an awesome training night. She will be starting the advanced training in April.
Sampson was in this class too, just as a refresher, and he, of course was awesome. The trainer was nice enough to allow him to come at no charge since he had already been through all the training.
