Obedience Class Today

Jazz's Misty Pines obedience class met at Wexford Plaza Shopping Center today for some real-world obedience training.
We practiced heeling with all the distractions of an outdoor shopping plaza, as well as sits and downs. Here's Jazz in a sit-stay at the flower shop. All the dogs wound their way through the flower shop past all the plants, which was probably more of a challenge for the boys than the girls :)

Then it was off to the pet store, where we had to leave the dogs in down-stays in the aisles while we shopped!

Here's the whole lineup of dogs from our class at the plaza.

We ended our class with down-stays at Starbuck's. All the dogs stayed in a down outside while our instructor treated us to a drink at Starbuck's. Jazz did very well with all the distractions and the other dogs and I'd say she passed Shopping 101 with flying colors! It was a great experience to take our training on the road and practice in a different environment. I hope we have the opportunity to do it again soon!
