I feel like I always post when I'm annoyed or frustrated with my reactive puppy. But she did great today! A repairman came over this afternoon and she stayed in the yard. She watched him go to his car several times, saw him through the screen door, and heard his voice without any reaction. No barking, jumping, or acting nutty.

Also, my friend came over tonight and she stayed next to me while he came through the door. I was pumping her full of chicken but that's an improvement because two months ago she wouldn't have accepted treats. I would let her approach him but she started to get too wiggly (whole body wag) and she usually jumps or slaps after that. I called her back to me and she came and went down. It only took a few minutes for her to calm completely.

Maybe there's hope for her!

Yay! So happy to hear that! She will have good days and bad days, but with hard work and patience, she will be okay. The older she gets the more she will chill out too. I need to work on this with Tank. He hates the repair men.
