Gosh yeah... Emme is almost 6 months now, but we've been doing 30-60 minutes walk daily since she's been 4 months old. She'd be a monster (well, MORE of a monster) without those walks!

Yay, Bella and I are having a good few days. She had puppy class on Friday and despite vomiting on the way there and on the way back and being the complete delinquent of the class (most of the puppies were half her age and much calmer), she really enjoyed it. We went to the vet for her post op, she needed anal glands emptying too, but she just was so good. Everyone at the vets loves her.

As well as that, we have been learning leave it, and she now leaves the dishwasher if I'm packing it. She is getting much better at wait too. We are trying our best at walking to heel, it's still hit and miss but getting there. She is slightly more settled with visitors now, in fact she can be quite indifferent when my mum comes round, and my sister has to tempt her with a toy to get her out of her crate!!

We went to the park just across our street today, the weather was amazing and there was only one other dog there, which she didn't even bother with, she just sniffed the cut grass. She was quite interested in a couple of teenage boys but soon ran off when they ignored her. Her recall isn't quite as good now as I think she is getting more confident and teenagery.

So hooray for good days!

Happy to read this! Em and I had a few good days, too. It helps being able to be outs ide more! We finally have spring and our snow melted thankfully. I think its just little by little.

I noticed the other day FINALLY... she is waiting like she is supposed to when we come inside. Typically we come in, and I remove my boots, coat, etc., and make her sit & wait. Well up until last week or so it was a constant battle. Now all of a sudden... she's doing it! :-)

I imagine one day we will look back and think 'wow we got there finally'. I'm hoping that we are turning a corner. She seems a little more chilled out in general, long may it continue.

Wow, I feel like we are taking huge leaps forward this week. Today, I had a friend and her kids round for coffee. After an initial jumping (which I told my friend to ignore, and being a dog owner she did) Bella just wandered off, she did check in a few times but most of the time just sat around the kitchen calmly while we had coffee. She has only seen my friend a few times and most of them we had put pop her in her crate because she doesn't leave people alone. But today she was amazing. I kept saying 'look at my normal calm dog'. I couldn't believe it. She was even slightly more calm (but not much) with the children. Result!!!!

If feel like there is hope now.

Zoey pulls like mad too We're very naughty and let her get away with it...Kasper pulls too! We tried for ages (6 months!) to lead train him using the tree method and treating for walking next to us, but never got anywhere with him. He does walk better now he is older and calmer, but still pulls a fair amount on the way to a walk. Walks beautifully on the way back The world's just so exciting!

Yes, I have tried treating her when she walks well, but she is just too excited.

My friends springer never managed until he had cancer which slowed him down. :-(
