Stella is coming right along! :o) She is still very nervous around new things but she has had many field trip days to PetSmart/Co & Home Depot. She is starting to play with the other dogs but has moments where I can tell by her body language she feels like she needs to strike out. She is corrected immediately before she reacts & then she's back to playing. Her obedience is coming along wonderfully. She is holding her commands with a ton of distractions.....even the cats taunting her & racing through the house like fools. The next few days Stella will get worked around more distractions & go on a few more field trips & hopefully be ready to see her momma on Saturday!
Maddie is a little super star!! She has done excellent on her potty training! She has started perching herself, front feet on the wall, & just stands until I notice her to take her out. She loves playing with the other small dogs & exploring the backyard....go figure. She is doing excellent off leash & now the test is on as I add harder & harder distractions & we will have fieldtrip days to the park & PetSmart for her to work on her manners when greeting people!!
