Mommy enrolled me in an agility prep/off leash class to practice more on my obedience skills. I did very well in this class and really enjoyed it. I get so excited during the class I just can't help but express my excitement by yapping. It annoys my mommy but I can't help myself.
Anyways during the second to last class the instructor was having our mommies have us down in motion. He had us all line up on the mats so we each had a column. He then told our mommies to have us down-stay or sit-stay. He placed a quarter in each column in front of us half way down. Then our mommies had to go to the other end of the room beyond the quarter while we stayed behind. He wanted our mommies to call us then have us down at the quarter. Whoever got the closest to the quarter would win them all.
I was getting impatient but my turn finally came. My mommy called me and gave me the signal to down a little before I got to the quarter. I stopped sniffed the quarter and obeyed my mommy's signal to down with the quarter between my paws. The other humans in the class were very impressed. My mommy was so proud of me. Of course I won the contest and got $2 worth of quarters. I can't wait to spend it. I wonder how many dog treats I can get for it.
Our last class was yesterday. I was a little sad that the class is over but my mommy says she'll sign me up for more agility soon. At the class I recieved a compliment from another mommy. She said she was amazed by how much I look at my mommy and stay focused. I'm always looking at my mommy. We worked long and hard on that so other dogs would not be such a distraction in class.
