Walking Progress!

Gaia is almost 9 months old, I'm sure where the time has gone but we've been training her with a prong for about 2 months now. On our morning walk I decided to walk her on her flat collar and bring the prong in my pocket just in case, I dare say we graduated from the prong! 95% loose leash with her by my side. I love seeing training pay off, it's such a great feeling.

Good Job!

With my two, even when I walk them separately, I still have to use the prong. Nadia pulls so intensely that even a correction seems to not have much affect on her. She will come back to a proper heel position for a few minutes then is right back to pulling. Zisso is all over the place zig zagging like a mad man and even giving a correction with a pop of the collar is tough for fear I will pop at he wrong moment and hurt him. I have had them both since they were 16 months old and they are both 5 years now

She's still a little curious around other dogs, with people she walks right by as if they are invisible, her ears will go forward as if to say I know you're there but she doesn't make a move for them.

We do a lot of basic training in the small dog section of the dog park when it's empty so hopefully Ill have the other dog problem fixed soon.
