 This beautiful girl is 4 month old, Viszla, Sienna.  She has been here for my Advanced Obedience program.  She is about 2 weeks into her training.  She has learned how to heel nicely at my left side with no pulling.  When we stop, where most dogs would learn to sit, she is learning to stand for her future in the show ring.  She isn't actually learning the sit command at all.  She knows her down-stay command, although it is the one she struggles the most with.  She still needs much reinforcement in that command even with minimal distractions.  She is doing excellent at her place command.  She is maintaining her place command with little to no correction and for extended periods of time.  She has started her transition to the off leash work in some areas but I would like to see her a little more solid on all the basics before I progress more in that area with her.  She has made tons of friends & is quite the social butterfly.  She sort of holds the card as the annoying little sister..... everyone else is pooped and ready to rest & she's still bugging them to play :o)  The rest of her time here will be spent progressing with her off leash work, refining all her commands & adding more distractions!!! Stay tuned for more on Sienna!
