Whew! This class was pretty stressful (for me and the dog). I kinda felt like I was being rushed around to the different stations. Gambit’s recall is absolutely terrible, and her being terrified of everything definitely doesn’t help. I’m pretty sure the other dog that was there was aggressive or something, since it seemed like she wouldn’t let her dog near Gambit at all.
We did work on the ladder, which Gambit did well on. Like most things, she was fearful at first. She was pretty bad at the chained jumps, but I think she showed improvement. Weirdly enough, she did awesome with the tunnel, and I thought that was going to be one of her most difficult obstacles. The tire, on the other hand… I couldn’t really get her to go near it by the end of the night. She did do really well with the table, though.
Obviously, she needs a lot of work. Her recall is still in the shitter, but my trainer said it’s likely because she’s so afraid of everything. So now I gotta recruit somebody to help me with it, oi.
