madam Jasmine has certainly thrown a few things at me today! Our instructor asked me to do the walk to work with no real input from her. She went out first and tried to blend into the background so that I could get on with it. madam, however, realised she was around and half way down the road she simply refused to go on. I tried cajoling, I tried correcting, but nothing would move the stubborn little dog! Eventually the instructor came back to us and Jasmine went on her way, although she was generally very distracted and a bit naughty. We had no further incidents like that on the walk though and after a while her work settled down.
Tomorrow, the instructor is going to come to the house without jasmine knowing hopefully, leave the harness and a two-way radio outside the door and get out of Jasmine’s sight. We’re hoping that if jasmine hasn’t seen the instructor at all, she’ll work better for me.
This afternoon I had to go for a hospital appointment and leave Jasmine at home. when I got back she’d obviously been fast asleep and was very excited to see me which was good.
