Reba's A Star! Halle - Um, well, not so great
Once Reba got in the ring and did a little heeling, she was great. The worst was the stand for exam; she was just too happy to have someone to talk too. Plus by the end of class, she would lie down during explanations. But her heeling was great and her sits were straight and she paid attention to me and the chicken treats. Nine dogs in the class. An older man is the instructor and he has a young woman for an assistant and to provide voice. The hour went quickly. We finished with a recall and could leave. Reba was stellar. Even the instructor thought so!
Halle, on the other hand was ticked about waiting in the crate for an hour. 15 dogs in the class and only 1 instructor. The trainer did a lot of things (other than heeling) 1 dog at a time, so we were standing around A LOT. Halle and I were both bored. You never want a bored JRT. The second ring was doing some obedience work that involved jumps and retrieves and somebody had a furry squeaky toy they were tossing around. Halle and I were both about to jump the fence and go where the action was.
