Today I woke up feeling incredibly tired and down. this morning we did some more traffic work which Jasmine did very well. However, she seemed generally distracted and sniffed a fair bit. I wonder if the little madam realised that I wasn’t as positive as I’d been on other days!
this afternoon We worked in the north Sherwood Street area again and there were a fair amount of people there. Jasmine worked like a dream, weaving in and out of the people, feeling very confident.
I received an excellent compliment from my instructor who said she wished she’d videoed us as jasmine was working so well and I was following well too.
When we arrived back at the hotel, we were asked to assemble in our lounge area and the instructors suddenly rushed in with squeaky toys, rattling biscuits and generally making a racket. this was to see how we’d cope when the dogs were faced with a high level of distraction. Jasmine was initially very out of control and it took me a minute or so to settle her properly but I achieved it. One of the instructors then came in with her pet dog on a lead. Jasmine was well behaved that time, probably because i’d just told her off!
