So over the past week since the last intermediate class I have been thinking I scheduled this class too quickly. Now that being said Lucy has done a fabulous job! She loves doing training and trick sessions daily. She behaves so well for a puppy of only 7 months old and I am very proud! Our heel work has just not been going as well. She is getting distracted very easily and the heat (80-90 degrees) has not made things any easier. A strong heel is so important for a well rounded dog and going on to earn titles. My hope is one day we can work as a team to earn AKC CGC, Trick, Obed/Rally Obed and Therapy Dog Titles. I called and spoke with the trainer and withdrew from the current class and was put on the postpone list. I will call back later in the year to reschedule. I want her to have a good foundation on heel and doing it when she is older and able to focus a little better hopefully will work out for us. So for now we will continue with loose leash training, basic obedience work, daily trick training and just have fun.
