We are not registered. We go with a group of local dog owners, just for fun. We had to show proof of rabies, and that is all.

She also is not real calm, as I said, their exercise ball had her flipping out (in a good way.) I always thought if there was a WWF nursing home it would be the place for her!
However, she IS 100% with people, so I don't worry about her getting into trouble, and I do not take my eyes off her for a nano second when I am there.
I am hoping she will be able to take the test at the bullympics, we have been working towards that.

She actually was pretty good until this year with other dogs. It turns out she was allergic to her food, and it caused all sorts of behavioral issues, from licking feet to dog aggression to spinning. I put her on home made diet for 3 months, then switched to a better food, and she is back to normal. I am just trying to undo the crankiness that seemed to creep in due to the allergy. It took months to make the connection that it was the food.
I agree, I have been clicking her around other dogs for attention to me. I just need to ween her off food, since we cannot have food there at the test.
