Video 27

Since I am unable to ride my bike yet, Cassie has been getting minimal exercise. Hope tears around the yard and wears herself out, but not Cassie. So this morning I put Cassie on the treadmill for a couple miles. It’ll do in a pinch, but its not the same as a bike ride. At noon Cassie had her K9 Nosework class. The girls were alone for about 2 hours when I went to class and until Dave returned home. When I came home tonight, Cassie again had a full tilt barking fit as I pulled in the driveway. I fully expect that it will take 10 days to 2 weeks again of never missing a day of Rel Pro before she gets calmer again. Basically, by not doing it for a week we were back to square one. I’m having surgery on my knee next week and hope that will not sideline me more than a day or two and set her back again.

The video today focused on building duration out of sight. She did very well, but I did not go out of sight by the back door, I was in the hallway or bathroom. Also, I didn’t close the kitchen door
