Today we had water aerobics! Miss Hestia realized that there is a window pretty low down on the pool deck that leads to the outside pool where there are loads of kids screaming, jumping, and playing. So she would take a peek out the window every few minutes to see what the kids were up to. It was so cute!
Unfortunately Hestia was a bit barky. She was even barking at me when I was right there next to her. I couldn’t figure it out, until I did a self check and realized I was starting to get anxious. I guess if she can’t lick me to alert, she resorts to barking. Not the response I hoped for, though…. Gotta decide if this is worth retraining since it is so rare that she can’t lick me. It was really hard to retrain for Ollie.
Anyway, about 5 min before the end of class, Hestia, who had been dozing for the last 15 min, woke up and started barking at me again. This time I knew why and I went ahead and got out of the pool before the anxiety hit too bad. Good catch Hestia!
