Eighteen months old now

Now give it to me!

Now give it to me!

Connie's had her end of Winter bath, ready for Springtime. Progressing with training, but emergency recall and confidence when walking are still an issue.
We find the information from other contributors very helpful, so thanks to all who, like me, use this site.
Hope you like the picture.
Bye for now.

Apologies for the delay NEW
by: Connie

Many thanks for you kind words and guidance.
Connie is in the Birthday Club; she's now (almost) two! She weighs 4.5kg and one day she sat in that position, so we said "Sit Pretty!" and fed her a treat. Now, she will adopt the pose when instructed, particularly if a treat is on offer.
Bye for now.

Connie NEW
by: Vicky & Jonah (Az)

She is gorgeous & I luv her haircut the way the leg hair remains full. her sit up pose is adorable.

She is only 1 1/2 she probably has or will hit the stage while walking all of a sudden she starts barking/growling at anyone who goes by on same or opposite side of the street. Some call it terrible 2's.

Continue on with walking every day tell her quiet & pick up the pace to get by the distraction. It will go away. Emergency recall pick up the training practice in ur house. If ur in 1 room & her in another call & treat. Make it a game. U can even play the come find me game while hiding behind a door or in closet which will teach her to seek u out also pick up the pace of her listening for ur voice.

Don't forget treat immediatly or use a squeaky toy if she likes them & keep it fun. Good luck

Leash training NEW
by: sherry cotton candie

Hope she continues to do well while on a leash. The picture of her sitting up is just adorable. Wish I could get mine to do that.....I do not work with them enough, usually giving in to whatever they want and not making them do it.

She is just beautiful, thanks for posting.

Thank you NEW
by: Connie

Thank you for your comments. We noticed that she instinctively sat in that position when she needed to investigate above her sight line, so we rewarded her when she did and placed our hand in a certain position. Now she will respond to the hand signal.
With regard, to walking, Connie was taken for a leash walk by our seven year old niece (accompanied by my wife and I) and walked perfectly. We watched the whole 1 mile walk and Connie was near perfect. Maybe any issues with walks are attributable to us!
Once again, thanks for commenting.

Connie is adorable. Can tell she is a good girl.
It takes a while to get them to walk properly on a leash. Our Coton is perfect when walking now. Our Havanese who is about 2 is like a jumping bean. All over the place and very naughty when she sees other dogs walking. She actually wants to run up to the owner and be petted but she growls and barks at other dogs on leashes. We have tried turning her around and distracting her, holding her but she doesn't seem to get it. We have a good trainer at the Doggy Day Care. Am going to have to book time with him. It's very difficult to walk two dogs when one of them is acting crazy. Even if they are two small dogs. More powerful than you can imagine.

What a cutie!
by: Lizbeth

I love the way she is seated. My husband and I usually walk Betty two or three times daily and she looks forward to it. Just keep walking her and she will become more comfortable with it.

She is so cute. How did you train her to sit like that., How much does she weigh? Our Bailey weighs about 12 pounds and will he will be 2 in June.
