We share these letters because the dogwalker is working on the problems that we have been working on! We hope that we can get your opinions and thoughts about Havi and her training. Shes always learning!
Hope you're enjoying the holiday weekend! Finally got my first walk with the lovely Havi today! She was a big old love bug when I came in, jumping on me but I corrected her. Getting the harness on was interesting since she kept flopping down on my hands.. She also laid down and started rolling around in the elevator. What a ham! I didn't let her get away with it though. She was very good on the leash, sitting at corners with some effort. She peed on the way to the park. There was a shiba inu there that got snippy with her pretty quickly, so Havi snapped at her. :( I got her away and sitting down fast, and the girl with the shiba inu left, citing they had been there awhile and knowing that her dog was the instigator. (Not to say Havi wasn't in the wrong as well.) It was just us after they left, so I tried throwing the ball some. She'd chase it, but lose interest and just go back to sniffing around and/or looking out for more dogs. Eventually a guy showed up with a male, looked like a boxer with a bulldog face - not sure what breed that is. Once he established Havi was friendly.. He went to sit in his car next to the park. ??? Don't know if this guy is a regular or not, but thought it was strange. They did play really well together though, so they wrestled some energy out for awhile. She was def pooped by the end. Speaking of which, she pooped again on the way home. She did try to pounce on three runners this evening, to which I sternly told her no. And she was a little obstinate during our very slow walk home, but I'm well aware I'll be earning her respect and not handed it. :) And I fully intend to earn it. I got her fresh water and one of her milkbones when we got back, and I'll see her again soon hopfully! Enjoy the rest of the holiday!
