Question for those who show dogs
Last night at the first class for Therapy Dog training, Cali freaked out. (She has already passed basic obedience and knows what to do.) She followed cues with great reluctance, even "sit".
This was a new room, with new dogs. She immediately became uncomfortable and we think it was due to the tile floor,which was kind of slick. She really didn't like the environment. It didn't seem to be the dogs, because she didn't make a peep toward them.
The floor at obedience class wasn't slippery and she had absolutely no problems there.
One of the teachers told me there is a product that some show people use to spray on their dogs pads, to avoid slipping. She suggested that I try it on Cali for next week's class.
She wasn't sure where to get this product.
I looked through PetEdge, but didn't find it.
