Gabe passed his first exam!
Gabe passed his basic obedience class last night! Wooo hooo! Atta boy GABE! It was really a fun evening but very nerve wracking too. Taking the floor one at a time, each dog was tested and scored individually. We could do a warm up practice and then told the instructor when we were ready to go through our paces. Tension mounting, Gabe and I took the floor. He was spot on during practice so I said "Let's do it!"
OK, Gabe has a lot of work to still do. We fully admit that. He doesn't "finish" at all, and still has work with maintaining eye contact, but all in all I'm very happy with him. We'll continue to work on skills and then begin our next set of classes probably the first of the new year.
WAY TO GO GABE-Y BABY! :)
