today has been a fairly uneventful day as far as the training is concerned. We have done two walks, including right and left turns, road crossings and sitting and standing to command whilst on the move. Jasmine is a very confident worker at the moment. The instructor was dropping right back at times and allowing Jasmine to get on with it which she did very well.
Out of harness she is still a little shy of me at times. She won’t allow me to brush her, she rolls onto her back at every opportunity. fortunatly she has a short straight coat so the lack of grooming won’t be a problem for the time being. I really think she would benefit from the old style grooming tables that we used to have at the centres instead of being brushed on the floor, tied to a drain pipe. Apart from that we have had a few games and a bit of a cuddle, so she is gradually getting more confident. Her tail is a little better today. she’s carrying it fairly low but its more or less fit for purpose, which of course is wagging!
I really am not enjoying staying at this hotel in the slightest for several reasons which I have today discussed with my instructor. She may arrange for me to travel in each day at the weekend which I feel will benefit Jasmine and me no end.
