just letting you guys know our trainer just gave us the best compliment on our last class....Anabell is almost ready for therapy training!!!! Her dog aggression is almost nill...she's calming down with people...she listens better than she ever had before...we still have ups and downs....but (knocking on wood as i type) she has not been this good, well, ever! anyways...it's all thanks to a lot of hard work (both hers and ours) and people like you guys giving me the strength and knowledge to continue...thank you all so much!!! i'll keep you posted on how therapy goes!!

Default last post on this thread

as far as updates are concerned....i don't think we need anymore! it's been three weeks since anabell has had her "angelic revalation" she's still a little devil (testing limits, constant attention seeking...etc.), but i can't believe the difference. so i think this is going to be the last time i update this thread!!! this was basicly my way of keeping sane during such a trying time...i never ever had such a difficult time with a dog...ever before!! but now, 3 weeks away from starting therapy classes...her being able to lay down in front of other dogs, and the biggest thrill was the play bow she does with dogs....it's just amazing...thanks again for listening (reading) and i'm sure i'll start a new one about the therapy.....i'm sure i'll have a ton of questions about that too!

thanks for putting up with me!

Please don't stop updating this thread! This has become somewhat of a diary for Anabell, it'd be a shame to just stop. You 2 mastered one big hurdle and we all know it's not going to be the last one and I loooooooove to hear about the progress!

Miss Dolittle asked that i keep the saga going so here goes....
yesterday was probably the best day of training we ever had....anabell was a star!!!! we did two things in front of the class (no mind you the class consists of at least 10 other dogs). First we did a recall on leash....she was a little nervous but great...no problems at all!!! then we did an off leash (well...not fully, we were using a retractable that was not locked in) heal...sit...heat...sit....i think everyone was amazed!! the best was there was a huge racket because one of the dogs is a huge drama queen (sorry, humanized again) and got all the other dogs excited and barking, some growling....well...anabell just sat in heal, waiting to see what i wanted her to do....she didn't bark, jump, or even whine...she just did "watch me" because that's what we've been working on when there's a lot of noise!! what a great day!!!!!
