Control Unleashed: Class Seven
We worked on sending dogs to mats working tight together. Matilda seemed very stressed out tonight. She was reluctant to go to her mat and then she kept popping up. We took turns being in the center of the dogs and handlers. Some people had handlers approach with their dogs, first walking, then running. Others needed to have just the people approach. I had Matilda sit at my side and had just the handlers approach and stand close by her other side while I fed her peanut butter. Then the handlers came, stood by her opposite side and we all three walked forward together. One of the women noticed she seemed more stressed by the two women who were wearing hats.
