Shut Up, Dawn!
I have to learn to shut up! Go ahead, say what your thinking, you would be right. Tonight we were not allowed to give commands in agility class other than our release words, praise where earned. I learned that Magic totally relies on my verbal directions and he really doesn't get the body language thing, so if I am out of breath, or don't get the commands out fast enough, he is confused. He doesnt think to look for me as much as to listen to me. which really does explain why we are better at distance where he gets directions rather than looking so much to my movement. So I need to learn to be quiet, while he learns the movement. Not sure if I can do that!
