De-sensitize/counter-condition her to cats (she used to love them, then had a bad experience when she was about 1.5 years old and has been scared since then, but this Summer my roommates had a kitten and she eventually got over her fear and even started to play with the kitty... that has not transferred over to all cats however)
Do a dog in white Ring1 routine
Bonus/Extension of Goal:
Actually compete in Ring1
Get a passing grade in Ring1
And of course as my SD, continue bringing her and exposing her to new things and situations!
