Tibby Recalls and A Stray Dog

Tibby and I have been practicing more recalls. I love the light 25 foot line that I bought when we had our private lesson. Tibby chooses to follow me. Me! She doesn't run away!
I try to go once a day and walk around on the 2 soccer fields by my house with Tibby on the long line. Some times it doesn't work, because there are people using the soccer fields. Also, there is a school across the street from the field/park and the kids are too much of a distraction for Tibby.
Yesterday, we finally found a good spot in the park to practice and I could film for our puppy/tricks class. Then a stray dog ran into our practice spot!!!
Ugh. It's not a real stray dog. The dog's owners live in one of the houses next to the park. They let it out to 'run' every day. It runs around every where. Annoying. Tibby didn't seem to care about the dog. Even though dogs are her favorite thing. I guess cheese is more powerful.

Maybe the yellow lab was trying to put Tibby to the test to see how well she would concentrate on you!

Thanks for visiting my blog! Tibby did such a good job, oh the power of cheese! I wish my mom would give me cheese when we train. Maybe you should talk to her! Woof!
