Tibby's Graduation

These are pictures from Tibby's Beginning Obedience Graduation.

Tibby says "Hi!" to Pearl's mom and then to Pearl.

Trying to heel.

This little brown dog's name is Mocha, he won 1st place in the puppy group.
We didn't win anything. :(  I thought we did a really good job, but we didn't get a ribbon.

Sit stay.
That white/grey dog in the corner was called Sliver.  She was 9 years old!  She was a retired show dog.  We couldn't say "Hi" to her though, her owner said she didn't like other dogs.

Isn't Tibby cute?!?  We worked hard on sitting straight, so the instructor wouldn't yell at us.

Down stay.
That tea cup poodle in the background was named Midnight.  It won 3rd place in the puppy class.  Yes, it is on its back.  I think the rating was rigged.  Look at Tib's excellent down/stay!!

Good eye contact!  Which is something they never taught in class.  They said eye contact was dominance and we should make sure our dogs weren't dominate to us.  :( Wrong.

In class Tibby had a hard time with down.  Now that we have started to learn with the clicker she does down all the time (maybe too much).

Tibby and my mom.
