Cool Great News!!!

Some of you know the trouble i've been having with my dog Anabell. Well, we went to our first day of training on saturday. I thought we were going to get kicked out. She didn't stop barking and lunging at the other dogs. Bill, the dog trainer calmly came over as Anabell is going nuts and sprayed bitter apple in her mouth. It took only 5 squirts and a few minutes for her to realize barking at other dogs equals spray. We learned heal sit, positive punishment, and positive reinforcement.
On sunday bell and I went for our afternoon walk and there right at the begining of our walk her arch enemy the black lab next door is right at the fence barking her head off at us. Normally i would have to drag bell away even if we walked on the oposite side of the road. Well yesterday we walked right in front of that fence and Anabell barley looked!!!!! NO jumping, barking, or anything!!! It was great!!! Also at home she is soooooooooo much better!!! I'll keep you all updated on her progress. Thanks again for all your help

excuse the spelling please....i'm still excited!!

we took a step back on saturday Anabell tried to show dominence over me! it started while we were at class. She was growling, and baring her teeth!! Luckily our trainer is very experienced in bully breeds and showed us quickly how to regain leadership. After that we had our bestfriend back again Sunday and today were back to normal....and even better than they had been in the past!! If anyone in the lehigh valley of Pa needs a dog trainer, contact me I will give you Bill's number. He is excellent!!!!!!!

Happy new year everyone!!!! well more on the anabell front...we had the whole family over yesterday....she was great! This was the first time we had people over the house since we adopted her!! She was still on the leash because of what happened saturday, and we had children over the house....but I think even if we didn't leash her, she still would have been great!! Also, I think yesterday was on eof the best walks we ever had!!! Like i always say, "Two steps forward and one step back will still leave you one step more than you started"

more good news!!! Anabell has been doing great! She really impressed our trainer with her behavior on Saturday!!! Bill taught us a new tech. that helped everyone in the house...it's very similar to what Ceasar Millan does in order to show dominance over a dog....i've only had to use it twice and she really gets it!! Anyways...still have to take one day at a time. Keep you updated

Awesome!!! I'm finally having some time for my own dogs, to pick up on the training, now that it gets emptier here. I started teaching Olliver how to jump through hoops. He's having a blast lol.
