refuses down command? you must be the alpha in the pack. I would work down using a variety of techniques, but not doing it is not an option.
my Teana wasn't too quick to down. but now she even rolls over.
best of luck with your wonderful rescue. you are a true animal hero.
Bless your efforts!!!!
I have to proceed with caution on any use of force with her, she is HIGHLY sensitive.
I am not a hero, she's a gift. Truly. I have to believe that I have done nothing any feeling human wouldn't have. I am so blessed to have had the chance to care for this beautiful soul.

I would love to be able to take her hiking, camping, etc without having to worry about her getting herself in trouble. I am a fairly active, outdoorsy type and it would be nice if she could participate. I hate leaving her at home but other dogs and people cause her stress. So far I have managed to avoid by going to super remote areas, but my husband would like to be able to invite friends along.

She sounds like an Inspiration! It makes me think of our old foster. He was sweet as could be, but he was so hard to find a home for. People like the idea of "saving" a special needs but it can often be a lot of frustrations than they realize at first. It was a challenge to live with him.

I have cried rivers of tears over her. I am trying to give her as 'normal' a life as possible but so far I haven't had much luck taking her off the property and it seems like every time I do we run into stupid people who's actions set her back further. Fortunately she's little so in a pinch I can just pick her up.
I guess I was hopeful that someone might have the 'magic key' that would unlock the world for her. Because the progress we see is so slow, she's 3 for heavens sake and still struggles with basics. Her current vet says she behaves much like an autistic toddler, and advised medication and management. She says training will probably never work well. But this dog is amazingly smart! She just doesn't behave like a dog, more like a wild monkey most days.
