Misha May's Flash at Understanding Dogs Behavior Class and Apprenticeshi...
Exercise Goal: to reward Flash for relaxed behavior in an unfamiliar envrionment with unfamiliar people. Flash, a 2.5 year old Border Collie mix, is a sweet smart dog, who can become too excited when greeting people on a leash. Here he is coming into class and making the rounds off-leash.
Barbi, his foster, brings him in. He greets Lorraine, his former foster. Flash is relaxed and friendly with all of the people, even the unfamiliar ones. You can see that no one is giving him attention for jumping in laps, but only when he is on the floor.
