Elsa was our first Labrador and was the first dog that we trained in obedience. Elsa was a lovely family pet that loved to socialise with other dogs and people, and in some respects that was her downfall when we entered her into competitions. Her enthusiasm to socialise with other people and dogs outweighed her ability to focus on the task at hand.
Elsa did eventually gain her Companion dog title but it was with a great deal of effort and perseverance on Theresa's part. Elsa's pups 'Ruby and Shelly' proved themselves to be much better in their working ability, but Elsa will always be remembered for her loving and gentle nature.
