Look out for her 14 day transformation.
Trek and I spent the day getting to know each other before our first lesson. She is doing really well and is getting the hang of her first command, ‘heel’. She did struggle a bit and pulled a lot in the beginning but she was able to walk next to me by the end of our session. She also got used to the e-collar today. It did take her a bit to get used to the feeling but did really well with it on. She ate half of her dinner and went potty like normal. She is adjusting really well to her kennel!
Trek and I worked on her ‘heel’ today at a local park. She was a little overwhelmed in the beginning since she wanted to rush and sniff everything. It did take her some time to fully get her focused. After a couple of minutes she was slowly able to get what I wanted her to do. We introduced ‘come to sit’ today and she did great picking it up quickly. She loves to sit on my feet when I ask her to ‘come’ so I’m trying to get her to make the extra effort to come all the way around my back and to my left side. She is such a smart girl and was able to get it by the end of our session. She still needs a bit of leash guidance but she is doing a great job. She ate half of her breakfast and all of her dinner.
