Dog training week 3 & 4
Well folks Leloo missed dog training week 4. Not her fault, mom got home late and completely forgot!!! I think she wasn't too upset. I do have some updates on her training though. Week 3 didn't go as well as week 2. Leloo was really agitated the whole session. I thought her little sprint around the neighborhood would have worn her out, (this was the day someone let her loose). It did not. She was pulling away from me the entire time. I could only slightly keep her attention as long as the treats were in site. It was a bit frustrating. We have been working on "stay" and the trainer checked to see if any of the dogs had separation anxiety. Leloo did well with both surprisingly. Even though she was overly excited. We've been really working on the stay. I wasn't sure if it would work with other dogs and people, but as long as she is on lease it works great. She has separation anxiety only when she is completely alone. She'll tear things apart while we're gone aka toilet paper, paper towels, amongst other things. Not every time, just when she's frustrated. The trainer was impressed that she didn't even notice that I was gone. I wasn't, I was a little disappointed. :( But I know it is a good thing.
