This afternoon Barbara and I met one of our Drill Team friends, Gloria, at the Cole Park Veterinary Hospital's Open House. We staffed a table for K9 Kindness which is an organization of instructors in the Triangle area of NC promoting reward based dog training.
Barbara and Gloria had lots of free literature to give away about puppy socialization and the importance of puppy classes, training methods, dog body language and other important topics and to encourage people to use humane training equipment. I got to model my front clip harness. When I got tired I got to stretch out on my mat.
I am always good at the vet's and I demoed how to sit nicely on the scale while being weighed.
Ambrose and I have always been trained with reward-based methods and we wouldn't want it any other way. I got to show off my tricks and of course got petted by lots of nice folks.
I want to give a shout out to my boyfriend Trotter. He was entered in a Rally Novice trial today and got 1st Place with a score of 98 our of 100! I am so proud of him. He has been trained with reward methods too.
