Zoey did great at daycare, I was talking to Steve and he seemed overly excited about it. Further in the conversation, I find out why
Zoey was actually playing with the other dogs today!!! I think he was just as happy as I was!! He was saying how from the first day he had her, she is excelling extremely fast, faster than he expected and he feels like she'll be able to take the muzzle off soon.
He was also talking about her obedience and how well and quickly she learns. I figured this since we work and practice this everyday, but nice to hear that she's good in other hands.
We were walking out of the place and there was another dog that we were going to pass by, Zoey obviously got excited but I gave her a quick correction (she gets extremely excited when I first get there), looked up at me and we strolled on by, no issues.
In the past, she would go bonkers, not necessarily being aggressive but needing to go to the other dog.
The stress levels are going down tremendously, I think she's really starting to come around. The big test is how she'll do with everyone over the Holiday's. I have a lot of faith in her although I'll keep a close watch as well. Also figured I'd throw a couple of recent pictures of her that i finally got around to editing.
Snuggling with mom and dad
This one came out pretty dark when I uploaded so it still needs some work.
aaaaaand her and her momma! ... pillow in the background is torn since Zoey thought there was a dragon in there, crazy girl.
p.s......... We've been playing tug a TON since the weather has been crappy, and it's night and day with her energy level. She didn't really like it before but since I've been persuading her more, she can't get enough of it.
