    DefaultBrigetta got spooked last night

    We were in obedience class last night waiting for our turn to do the Rally course and just as we were approaching the first sign, something spooked her and she wouldn't budge. Her tail was between her legs and she started shaking
    I felt so bad for her because she normally really enjoys going through the course and my trainer had just complimented us on our tight turns and the serpentine weave. Because of her fears, the classroom is really the only place we can do Rally, so I was disappointed as well.

    I am sorry Brigetta had a rough night. Did the trainer have any thoughts on how to proceed at this point? I am glad, however, that generally Brigetta is enjoying the classes. I didn't realize you guys were learning the rally course. It sounds like a nice area where she can stay focused. Keep us posted on her progress.

    She had me pull Brigetta to the side and she stayed with us, playing with Brigetta while we watched the others complete the course. I was trying to encourage Brigetta to go through the course because I thought she would be fine once we got going, but my trainer didn't want her to have a bad experience, so we didn't do it- which was the right thing. It's an advanced obedience class that has a Rally section. We've been through it before. My trainer has been so helpful with Brigetta and I love learning the Rally signs, so we've signed up for the class several times.

    Poor Brigetta. It's too bad she got scared; let's hope it's a temporary thing, and she can enjoy rally again.
