Theo and I have now completed the Pet Partners class. This past Monday was the mock evaluation. We did ok on most of the tasks however Theo was thrown off his game by the reappearance of one of giant dogs, who had been absent for most of the class. Theo never really recovered and remained uncooperative and wiggly for most of the test. Had it been a real test, we probably would have failed.
The big lesson I learned is to schedule the evaluation at the end of the day so that no extra dogs will be present to distract Theo. And I need to keep practicing having him be around unfamiliar people and places.
The evaluation is not till June and meanwhile we have much to practice.
