Sorry it took so long, life is busy back at home!
I wanted to give you an update. Tabby continues to improve at home. And Lily (the 2-year-old) is on the same program now and showing great improvement. The situation with 5 dogs is much easier to deal with now that I don’t have to worry about Tabitha going off on the other dogs. And she’s a much happier dog now! I see a sweet side of her I haven’t seen since she was a puppy. It’s really wonderful.
I haven’t started working with her on walks with stranger dogs yet. There’s still some ground work to be done at home. But, other situations are being resolved that give me confidence we’ll be able to overcome her issues with other dogs on leash. She has a training class starting in a month, where she’ll be around other dogs so that’s our goal.
I just want to thank you so much for the training. Your insight, and tools and techniques that you brought to our situation, have been just what I was looking for. It’s so nice to be on the right track finally! Thank you.
I included a photo of Tabby and Guinness from our trip. I also attached a video of the two of them playing the last day we were there. Tabby and Guinness have never played together at home, so this was a drastic change. Tabby is being very submissive and Guinness isn’t humping her. So, big improvements. :)
