Thinsel here. I've been off the web site for a couple of months, taking some time off to go to obedience classes at Guides Canin. I really enjoyed the classes, and some people even thought I was the star of the class. We worked on basic commands: sit/down/stand/come/stay, and some leash work. We even worked on some heeling. Once I got used to the other dogs in the class, I didn't try to drag my foster mom over to meet them. I still have my moments out on walks, but she ALWAYS has a treat in her pocket which will distract me and settle me down enough to pass dogs peacefully. You can definitely see an improvement, so it's important to keep this up.
Here is my wish list for my new home: I'd like to be the only dog, so you can focus on my continuation on training. I would like someone who will continue taking me to class, as I really enjoy them, and it will help me to bond with my new guardian. No cats please, and an adult only home. I am good with other dogs with the proper introduction. I can be very rough in play, so calmer dogs are a better match. I am not a dog-park type of gal....my greetings consist of charging up to you, so best to leave that off the list. I am good off leash and come when called (unless another person or dog is within sight that I must go and explore first). I am calm in the house, and rarely bark. I am not destructive and can be left alone loose. I do require a lot of exercise, so no couch potatoes! I also love car rides.
