I wish Delgado was more confident with other dogs. He's handled malls, people, gun shots, outdoor concerts, and even fireworks without flinching but put him cold turkey in a group of 5 dogs which he doesn't know and he either runs or gets defensive

If he's introduced one or two at a time no issue, or if already knows one or two it's fine but if they're all strangers he doesn't like it. Still working on it...

I wish Stosh wasn't so confident. He seems to have no fear or sense of caution so I worry that he'll hurt himself [like when he hurls his body off the 5'ft high deck] or get into a dangerous situation [like when he flushed wild hogs out of the brush]. And when we're herding, he's so confident that he knows best that he doesn't always want to do it my way. He's very cuddly and affectionate so I lucked out there.

I REALLY wish Harley had more drive and energy. He's pretty neutral when it comes to training, which makes things more difficult. But oh well, we make it work.

I love my boy Xerxes and my girl Jasira to death but:
1) I wish Xerx would quit picking up and eating junk outside. ( He eats the pea gravel in his outdoor kennel so i can't put him out there.)
2) I wish Jas wouldn't lose her mind sometimes and take off running when out exercising.She ran across a busy road again./sigh

Ooooh..boy...Tazor just destroyed our dryer vent.. its mangled. And he pulled the foil-ey hose out and turned it into a 8 ft wire with shredded tinfoil streamers....I would like to add...be more selective when choosing toys. He is also digging a giant hole next to the basement door. I would stop him, but now I am just too curious as to what he is looking for...waiting for a skull to pop out from between his legs. Still looking for excuses to give my husband who hasnt seen it yet.

One thing I would change about Jazz is the whining. Bunny sometimes can be reactive so that's what I would change about her.

With Kya I wish she was more cuddly. She is always by my side, and follows me everywhere but when it comes to snuggling, NO way. She will not be on the furniture with you, bed with you, if you sit down next to her she moves a little farther away. She will come up and get her "loves" then go lay down.

Milla is pretty good I just wish she would focus a little better (she's young I know she will get there) and leave my cats alone! She thinks everything/one wants to be covered in her kisses, the cats DO NOT appreciate it.

I love Rio but she is very trying at times

If I could change anything about her it would be:

- Stop her whining
- Get her to recall off lead (we're still on the long line!)
- Stop her following the kitten around constantly

That would make life a whole lot more enjoyable for the both of us.
