Miss Yuma is doing soo well. She is socializing fantastic but that's no shocker. She is doing excellent with her obedience now. After a few days of being a quite little lady she has bloomed. She is beaming with confidence (except during storms...but we'll get to that in a minute) and so happy to please when you ask her to do something. She is now heeling on a loose leash at my left side & sits nicely when we stop, she is doing her sit & down stays with distractions, although she's still mastering the door bell :o) She is greeting people nicely without jumping up and we've started working on her place command. She is getting better with the storms & we have had plenty of them to work on her reaction to them. In the beginning she would drag you under the closest thing to get away from them. Now she will hold her commands such as heeling or staying in a sit or down command but is still trembling. She pants very nervously but is slowly learning to deal with the uncomfortable feeling/sounds of the storms. The obedience acts as a distraction to her wanting to get away & hide. She's coming around and certainly making friends in the process. More to come on Yuma as the week unfold :o)

YEA! Go Yuma!She is a pretty girl(I know -I am partial). I am so glad to hear she is doing well. She does want to please and she is very social but those darn storms! Thank you for working with her! Can't wait to learn myself (I need training too...) :-)
