We had our first intermediate class tonight. She already knows some of the intermediate stuff, but this will be good to make sure she gets them all down pat. The main thing we need to work on right now is distractions!
Some days she's fine, she'll see another dog barking at her, wanting her attention, and she'll still mind me. Other days it's like I'm not even there, and I could put a piece of hot dog in front of her mouth and she doesn't even notice! Crazy pup.
She did good in class, though. We've worked on heel at home a little, but we did more training on that in class today. We also did "down stay" with distance, where she lays down and stays while I walk off. She did VERY well with this, I walked about half way across the store, and around a corner, with her off leash and laying by herself, and she stayed! We did it several times, and she obeyed every single time. So proud of her!

Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures, but Nadia had her first visit to the dog park today! We met all sorts of little pups (we aren't brave enough for the big dog side), and all the people were very friendly too. We plan on visiting quite frequently when the weather isn't too hot!
