Sparkle and I went on a workshop with Tori Self on Saturday. She is from America and has been very successful with her dog Rev. It was great fun to have a different perspective on running a course and some new ideas. Tori was great in not forcing us to handle in a set way but working out what was most comfortable for us as a partnership. Sparkly amazed me, I started off feeling self conscious and awkward (normal for me in public!) but everyone was so lovely and I started to handle less like a numpty! Cat who hosted the workshop was fantastic quietly taking photos of the dogs working and Spark coped with it really well and didn't show any signs of shutting down. Cat's pics (Dinobark Digital) are beautiful! It was very touching to have two people from the afternoon message me and say how great Spark looked, so kind and made me have a little happy cry thinking about how far we have come and what adventures we still have to share.
