Yes agile, it's Gromit 😃
The course lasted 8 weeks and involved basic commands such as sit,down,stand,stay (10 secs),basic recall, meeting a strange dog, an unknown human, play with a toy and give it up, walk on a lead in a controlled manner. They also have to tolerate a bit of handling, ie ears,teeth etc.
Owners have to be aware of the legalities of dog ownership and care.
Now we have signed up to do Bronze i am a little worried because someone has told me you aren't allowed to use treats :eek:
Malaika is the type of girl who wont do anything for nothing :rolleyes:
Thank you everyone for your lovely comments.:)

I bet you'll be fine for the next level. I'm sure your instuctors will tell you how to wean Malaika off the treats. It's really about increasing the duration of work-time before rewarding.

Congratulations to Malaika and obviously to you as well Shelley. She looks very pleased with herself and so she should!
