YAY for our trainer in Austin! She’s been working hard! Here is her latest update on dear, wonderful Lucia, who suffers from PTSD, and her SDIT, Lily!
I had a GREAT session with Lucia and Lily at Home Depot tonight! We wanted to work on Lily heeling with distractions around and Lily did AWESOME job! I also had Lucia work on her loose-leash walking and no leash – just walking by her side! Lily did so great, a few times she would forge ahead but Lucia would call her back into a close and continue heeling! Even without the leash!!! She has great recalls now! I am so proud of them!!!
We also worked on sit/stays and down/stays as well and Lily can hold them for about eight feet and then breaks them but it’s great progress!!!
They are getting real close to taking the PAT! This was ONE of the BEST sessions we have had so far!
YAY FOR LUCIA AND LILY!!! I SIMPLY LOVE THESE TWO! LUCIA IS ONE OF THE SWEETEST PEOPLE I’VE EVER KNOWN, AND HER WORK WITH LILY IS SO CONSISTENT IT ALMOST BRINGS ME TO TEARS!! AGAIN, WONDERFUL TRAINING FROM OUR AUSTIN TRAINER!!!
