We are so close to Spring! I love to wear short-sleeve shirts and sit in the back and let the sun and warm winds sink into my winter bones...Also, with Spring coming, that means the start of the new Open exercises. I have a feeling that dogs' abilities will be divided into 3 groups:
1) Those that get it and do it consistently.
2) Dogs that kind of succeed, 50-50, maybe hope will pull them through.
3) Dogs that still haven't grasped or learned all the Open B combos.
Well, time will tell. I hope this doesn't discourage people from moving on through Open B to Utility... To me, it seems more like a trick than an obedience exercise, but I am going to try. The border collie gets it (yaa for innate smarts!) while the lab is in the 50-50 group. With hope, we will proceed on to the new shows and signal away...
