.... For a job well done! I'm sure Katrina's told everyone how her dog bit in obedience. Hey, it happens! But the way she handled TJ in the bite work was very nice. Then on Sunday She decided to trial again after much debate. This time she didn't pass the obedience b/c there were exercises that TJ just wasn't ready to perform but she still ended with a 75 (She needed 80 to pass in the 3's). But this time her and TJ looked like a team. Katrina was much more relaxed and handled her dog much better. B/c TJ didn't pass obedience Katrina opted not to go on to bite work so TJ wouldn't learn he could blow her off during bite work.
A very wise and bold decision as most would have went on to the protection anyway b/c that's the fun stuff!
All and all a very nice and clean routine! Congrats Katrina for a job well done!!!
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."
