She's crazy independent. Luring is a no-go for her, for the most part. If it's not her idea, it's not going to happen. I'm much more used to a dog that pushes into me for working and is almost a bit more "needy", but she is much more self motivated. Plus, her drive is through the roof INSANE, so if I don't figure out her source of motivation, she can get frustrated easily. She is a very powerful little thing already, so using a bit of frustration once we get her motivation figured out will probably work in my favor.

We are working a lot more on bonding and general engagement recently
