Massey and Me
Massey is my 4yr old aussie shepherd, we have gone through a lot of ups and downs together training wise, mainly because I did not fully "get" her.
I would get upset when she became distracted in our training sessions: now I understand that she is not being bad, it is just her coping mechanisms when I put too much pressure on her.
With the help of my agility instructors they have shown me what I need to do for Massey, together we are working as a true team, it is a great feeling to have your dog work with you, especially with all the frustration I have had in the past.
I now know how it can be working with her and look forward to our future as a team.
Kinda soppy I know, but it is how I feel.
