Hard Work Pays Off

Our local vet tech school had put out an ad looking for volunteers to bring in their dogs for a kind of show and tell. Jumping at any chance to socialize Gaia with different people/places, I replied.

Today was the day and I couldn't be prouder of my little girl. She was on her best behavior, let the students examine her teeth, look into her ears, lift up her paws, all the good stuff. They had me show what obedience she knows and she did beautifully on what we've been working on (down on recall, recall, down/stay etc).

As we were leaving, the instructor, commented on how she's a great ambassador of the breed. I think I still have the stupid grin on my face

Good job. If all dogs got that training, the shelters would be empty. It is so awesome when people can experience a well behaved Shepherd

Thanks everyone. Little moments like that are so rewarding and make all the frustrating moments seem so minute.
