Someone was a superstar today!
She didn’t cry at all when I left her crated in the ring to work around the store. And she only whined a few times in my class today.
She really was relaxed today. Choosing to lay down in her crate instead of sitting and standing while staring at me. So I got a lot of opportunity to reward her for it. I was so dang happy I grabbed a bully stick and gave to her to chew on. Normally she will just carry them around if she isn’t at home. Today she actually chewed through half of it which means she was more relaxed.
The things she had to demo she was great at. Despite still being over enthusiastic about greeting my coworkers she did very well. So proud of my girl!
I just need to keep on her for polite people greetings. She has gotten better with dogs but people still make her a bit bonkers.
