Jasmine is now settling down well to our work routine, in spite of the fact that we’ve had loads of snow and ice to deal with. I’m hoping that this will continue. I feel that Jasmine seems so inexperienced, even compared with other dogs I have qualified with, and I’m hoping that a work routine will help her gain confidence.
I had an awful realisation yesterday. When I first brought Jasmine home, I realise that I actually didn’t like her very much. She was disobedient, she lacked confidence, and she wasn’t Jade! Thankfully, she is actually very different from Jade and as she becomes more secure at home, her own little character is beginning to shine through. I feel dreadful about my initial feelings towards her, but they were very real for a while.
