In Millie's training I have been focusing on playful training with positive reinforcement. In classic dog sport we participate at Obedience part, we don't do tracking and protection but when searching for truffle and marking the object, the dog uses the nose, or in case of sheep herding, the excitement and level of instinct is similar to protection.
With the help of the Mirror Method, we have passed the Obedience level 1 and 2, and Tricks level 2 exams so far.

I dreamed of passing an exam which is known and acknowledged on an international level, this is why with my colleague and our coach Zsuzsa (Solymos) Szilágyi we prepared for the BH exam. Due to the uncertain local legal environment I passed the exam in Slovakia.
However the BH exam was a competition as well, the first working competition in our lives was held in Salföld (H) in June 2015: the Ferenc Skobrak Memorial Hungarian Competition of Shepherd Breeds qualification.
Judge Ferenc Pischoff's evaluation: "Andrea Leidl and Millie did a beautiful, great job. I would like to emphasize the relationship between dog and owner. They made one team. Their work was so complex and harmonised that it was an example to all of us."
