Hi everyone. Hope all is well w you all.
I have a few questions about Ava. She's approx 10 months old now. Just finishing her first heat (in case that has anything to do with anything lol) and I seem to be at a stand still with her training.
When I first met her she was very unresponsive to her handler- no eye contact, no focus, barely listened, hyper active etc.
I started working w her as soon as I got her but still not where I'd like her to be.
She learns VERY quickly from what I can see.
I just don't know if she gets bored or what but training seems to frustrate her at times. She will act out what I ask if her rushed and bothered just to get the treat and sometimes not at all! As if her day is booked and I just didn't get an appointment! LOL.
Since she is mixed husky I have read a lot on them and this behavior seems typical of a husky. But I don't want to blame her scatterbrained -ness on her being a husky mix. That just can't be it! Can it?!??
I will say, she has calmed down A LOT. And she improved tons from when I first got her but I can't help but feel like she should be a little more consistent by now.
would you recommend profession obedience training? I'd be very excited to try this and I think we can both learn a lot.
Know any good trainers in NJ (US) ?
And how much should I expect to pay for it?
Thanks for reading (:
