Thanks sue, that means so much. I love her so much and she is the most wonderful dog. Everyone she meets just fall in love with her. When I have a moan about how naughty she is my friends all say that's why they love her, she has a sparkle in her eye.

She is doing so well at training class. When we first joined she was just going into her teenage phase and didn't listen at all, she was slightly older than the other dogs who were still being quite good. As they now move into teenagehood, she is getting better and better.

I really don't want to be the type of owner who does nothing with their dog and then moan when things don't go right, I really am trying but as this is our first dog I don't have a point of reference to know what is normal and what is not. Children on the other hand I know quite well......

It funny as this is the first summer I have been able to have my upstairs windows open as I was always afraid Amy who is 7, would jump out of them. The others never did anything like that but Amy can fall off or into anything. It's funny that they grow up without you realising. I just hope Bella does the same before I totally loose my mind!

Honestly she sounds like a really smart puppy and in some ways being really smart makes them more challenging but also more rewarding. If you are not already using clicker training I'd really suggest that to you because it's easiest way to shape behaviors. You can use this method of training to teach all the different parts of a complex behavior. For example you could teach her to go to her crate as one behavior. Then you could teach her tobpick up a toy as another behavior. Then you could teacher to do those two things together. No doubt she would love the whole training process because it's attention and it's positive.

I sometimes think that she is smarter than me, its me who struggles with ways to train her. She does know the command to get into her crate, but I find it hard making the connection to the next training step.
