SO proud of Lucy!
We are having t-storms here today, and I know that Lucy's mental health depends on exercise, so in between storms I took her to the beach. There was a large family there with several very small children, toddlers on up. Lucy loves people, especially the short variety. I left her on leash while I walked by them, and then saw a training opportunity. I let her get interested in the kids, and she was standing at the end of my six foot lead, but without tension. Just standing there laser focused on the babies. I told her to come and she immediately spun and came, and sat right in front of me. She did that twice. No hesitation at all. Glad I brought treats!
So when I was farther down the beach I let her off leash and she ran around, but never went far away. Ignored all of the people that were within sight, and never made like she was even THINKING of taking off.
I love that pup.
