Yipee!!!!! I passed my level 2 obedience test tonight.
There were 9 exercises and each was marked as EXCELLENT, GOOD, SATISFACTORY or NEEDS IMPROVEMENT.
When it was my turn for the first exercise, a lady who had came in late, entered the room with her dog and one of the other dogs started barking. The whole thing kind of distracted me and mom and wouldn't you know it, it was the heel on leash exercise which I hate. I still got a mark of GOOD for the exercise but I know I could have done better if mom and I were more focused. When we got to the next exercise, the figure 8, I had settled down so I got an EXCELLENT on that one. I did well on the rest of the exercises as well. EXCELLENT for heel free, come, stand, board jump and stay. And a GOOD for the down signal and sit signal.
Were going to take a break from obedience classes for the summer because we'll be busy with field training and Jennifer's soccer. Linda said that she would have some level 3 classes in the fall so we'll see once the schedule comes out.
