In Tricks class today our instructor praised Maya multiple times for being simply AMAZING and told me afterwards that a well behaved 9 month old shepherd (right next to dogs she can't play with) is a miracle!
Maya demonstrated multiple tricks (going from down to a sit on one command, going to a mat and lying down, etc.) and managed to do everything PERFECTLY! I was as surprised as everyone else.. she was having an extra good day I guess?
Our trainer also said we were a great pair and asked me to be her assistant trainer for her next session of classes!!
