Trilby gains her Good Citizen Award
This post is just a little celebration of my girl Trilby who gained her Bronze Good Citizen Award last weekend. She has wanted me to tell you about it all week :-) Here she is just checking the rosette is fixed right.
Yes Trilby I will tell everyone what you had to do. The test was held in the town of Harrogate which is a bit of a drive from where we live. There were quite a few dogs taking the test on the day and they didn't all get through :-( . For the test Trilby had to show that she can walk and behave properly when on lead, including walking through doorways and walking around other people and dogs, that she can stay in one position for 1 whole minute when asked to do so (very hard for Trilby!), that she can wait patiently while her handler is having a conversation and allow herself to be groomed and inspected calmly; that she will come when called. She had to wear a collar with identification tag and be on lead and Judith had to make sure she carried a supply of poop bags and knew the answers to the examiner's questions too. The full details are on the Kennel Club website if you are interested just click this link.
One last photo Trilby - I've got this award already too you know..but maybe not at only 7 months old :-) We are all proud of you baby!
