I've gotten so used to Maya being the star of all of her classes that I was really disappointed at her first Rally class. She was a nervous wreck with so many reactive dogs all crammed together outside of the pen and was very BORED while we had to wait our turn, so when it came time to do our runs she paid me no attention and was off in her own little world.

This week was MUCH better! She was still a little upset, but I tried to make it much more fun for her and we did some pre class exercise that seemed to make a big difference. When it came time to do her run she did everything PERFECTLY and was giving me excellent eye contact throughout the whole thing.

When we finished everyone clapped and the instructor took me aside to say that Maya was AMAZING (she is 10 months in 2 days) and that she was AKC OB CHAMPION material!!! They may have been trying to be nice, but it felt great to hear and I am so so proud of Maya for showing what she can do!
