A few weeks ago we were walking at one of our favorite dog spots and she saw a little wooden bridge up ahead. She totally freaked out and tried to get out of her harness and run away. She wouldn't eat a treat or look at me or anything. She has done this a few other times, all visual it seems. I'm hoping it is just a young dog phase that she will outgrow and learn to trust me and look to me for security.
She's been learning to use those gigantic feet! Stand near book, click/treat for looking at book, c/t for stepping on book, c/t for both front feet on book, c/t for moving hind feet independently of front end, with front feet still on book.
Big feet, big pads!
Since I work at a vet's office and have kennels in the back I take the dogs to work with me. When Amber was here I left her and Rye at home loose in the house. I don't like the idea of leaving Indi in her little kennel at home while I'm at work all day so I feel like I have to take her to work with me. That means Rye goes too since he can not be left alone. He doesn't really love being there. He is alright since Indi is in the kennel with him but he still barks quite a bit and gets worked up. Today I decided to put one of Amber's old shirts on him, a rather small, tight fitting shirt. I thought I'd try to imitate the thunder shirt. I didn't hear a peep out of him all day! Could it really be true? I just hope it keeps working!
