She has also been showing self-restraint about jumping up. While all this sounds like fantastic news what I want her owners to take away from this is that they have my permission to have extremely high expectations of her. If she is not behaving perfectly at home they can get after her because she is spending this weekend showing me that she remembers her training and can absolutely rise to meet high expectations. My homework for her people is going to be to act like drill Sargents when they get her home and really drive home what they expect of her. This won't make her unhappy in fact we may see a calmer Mattie if she is getting more direction about what she is supposed to do at home.
Tomorrow we are heading to the farm for a good run around and a work out around some different distractions.
