I’m so pleased with Jasmine today. Our instructor arrived this morning and we decided to work on my walk to work. As its only a ten minute walk we took Jasmine there on the lead first to show it to her. We then took her into the office where her new friends were waiting to say hello! I had to keep it low key but she was well behaved and stayed calm despite the attention.
I then did the route with jasmine in harness. We walked there and back with very little input from the instructor. I noticed on a familiar route that although jasmine has a lot more tension when she works, she actually tackles obstacles in much the same way as jade used to, so she was very easy to work in familiar surroundings.
I know I have a long way to go with her yet, but I really felt confident walking with her today.
Poor dog cried at the door though when her instructor left.
