As some of you may remember, I was having trouble with Gossy zooming off in agility class after we started with sequence training. To try and counteract this, we've been working with leash attached. In addition at home I've been working my way through "Control Unleashed" and we've also been taking a "Revamping Recall" class.
So last night in agility class, we started right off with a complicated (for me) sequence to do. I decided to run Gossy without the leash to see how she'd do and because I didn't want her to get tangled.
OMG - did she ever surprise me! Not only did she not zoom off, she stayed relatively close and was obviously paying attention to me. She ran slightly ahead of me so I couldn't always use hand signals on some of the obstacles but she did whatever I called out. Even our instructor was impressed. There's hope afterall
