Luna has been struggling a bit with impulse control and resource guarding. We've implemented some strict house rules and started going to an intermediate manners class-- really a class to amp up distractions, duration, and to clean up cues and improve teamwork. She and I are also preparing to start work on her Rally Novice title in February.

She and I had some class homework (prompt response to cues in new environments) and we needed to work on settling into a new place since the show is just under 3 weeks away and it's an overnighter! We went to the college campus and had a blast. After we settled in with some eye contact, she was a rock star!!
The fountain made a lot of noises and was pretty scary. But she wasn't afraid of heights:
Now we just have to work on "down" on different textured surfaces. She wasn't happy about it on the regular concrete. CERTAINLY not happy about it on brick.
