Vito's first run through!

At the big fundraiser held today at my obedience club, I decided to enter Vito in his very first run through. I did the Rally Novice course with lots of treats armed and ready! I also attached the leash to my waist so I wouldn't have to worry about holding it.

As you can see he was very excited and jumpy. I made the mistake of holding the treats in my left hand at the start which I KNOW gets him too excited. Luckily I realized my problem and switched to treating him with my right hand. I am very proud of how Vito did. Obviously he is no where near ready to trial, but his attention was amazing.

Good job Vito! Wow! I wish we had a place near us that had beginner competitions like that so that we could work our way up to more difficult things.

Congrats Vito!!!

p.s. Momma is starting to look for a new training facility for Brice. He has an "issue" that they had to work through first.

Wow - Vito was fantastic! You must be so proud of him! Such focus and attention! I wish I had 1/8th of that from Honey!!! :-)
