Default Carma's first "mock trial", 5/4/14

With such an abundance of sport enthusiasts/IPO clubs in our region, we are fortunate enough to be able to hold some "mock trials" a couple times a year to put our dogs in the trial environment and see what we need to work on. This was Carma's first time, and I "entered" her for IPO1 obedience and protection.

We need to work on a few little things like more clarity on the motion exercises (the sit in particular ) without handler cues after duration without reward, but I was thrilled with her performance overall. Her attitude and engagement was overall wonderful and I was really, really happy with her obedience.

Scott and I with Wuma and Carma checking in for obedience. We are typically each other's "spotters" and we never get our dogs on the field together. It was really cool to be able to do it for once, although in my heeling routine, he did try to sabotage us and was calling Carma's name to try and break her attention
