Obedience and Agility Test
Last Saturday Grom the search and rescue dog completed his Agility and Obedience Test at the Urban Disaster Dog Search and Rescue training facility in Maryland known as Search Assist. This is where they train those awesome disaster dogs you see on TV.
This is the very first time he has been on a big boy teeter totter. This thing was huge!
It appears it did not phase the boy much. All of that climbing and trouble making around the house finally paid off!
One of the more difficult elements in the Obedience is the emergency down or platz. Grom must hit the deck when we tell him, a very useful command to learn, especially if he is about ready to cross a road with a car coming or some other danger. I was strolling along waiting for the dog to wander far enough away from me. Grom was quite impressed with all of the fun training rubble piles and buses he saw.
And Yes, he passed both tests.
