Naomi has been doing well with her groundwork and catches on quickly. She is solid in many of her basic skills but can sometimes be anxious and anticipatory of her handler. She leads well, sends over obstacles, loads into the trailer, ties well, and is becoming better with her feet. She is working on relaxation, bending, and focus during groundwork in-hand and at liberty so that her transition to work under saddle goes smoothly.

Naomi has had some groundwork and is making good progress. She is slightly difficult to catch, but leads beautifully and is very level headed and eager to learn. She will continue to work on groundwork with the goal of being started under saddle when she is ready.
