I'm thinking we are getting stay mastered....

So I took Minnie outside this afternoon to practice what we have learned so far in our obedience class. I had horses out grazing in the yard so I figured they would provide for a good distraction. She is healing well, a pro sit, and getting down. I then decided to work on stay since we will be having a stay contest at class tomorrow. The goal is to see who can get the furthest from their dog and still have them stay. Well I dropped Minnie's leash and was about 10-15' from her plus my gelding was 5' from her and she stayed sitting right where I left her and waited for me to return to her side. I'm very proud of her. She likes to learn but gets bored easily so I find it best to switch things up on her. Now here's hoping she does just as well in class w/ 8 other dogs. =)
