We like to challenge our dogs in training and are always thinking up new exercises. This morning at Saint Nicholas I set up an exercise combining the sit stay and dog manners for my silver II class. In the exercise all dogs had to remain in a sit stay, 4 paces away from their owners, whilst an off lead dog walked down the centre (between the dog and owner). This exercise really tested their impulse control as what is more tempting than a beautiful blonde walking past! ( I will let you decide if you think I meant Mia or Ve (though Ve did have a pocket of cheese treats!))
