I think you may have sensed that I was in a bit over my head with this dog in the beginning
I wasn't sure quite what to do with her. We have always had Golden Retrievers and they were basically living furniture! Didn't even need to teach them much of anything, they were SO mellow......they just kind of hung out and followed us around!
I wasn't even really a 'dog' person before this! Now I nearly live and breathe working and training her! She is just such an amazing dog, in spite of me!!!
