In the last two classes and free mat time, we have been working articles. Kodi has the concept down pretty good, so my instructor Marcia decided to begin proofing Kodi on articles. She started out just standing behind the pile and then walking etc. Kodi didn't miss a beat. So she did the same proofing that she does with her OTCH dog, Sabre. Marcia knelt in the middle of the pile with the correct article between her legs. She put a favorite toy under the correct article. Put a bag of treats in the middle of the pile. Put chairs around the pile with the correct one under a chair.
Kodi nailed it every time! Seeing this, my other instructor Elly invited Kodi and I to be in their intermediate Utility class next session! Atta girl Kodi!
