Woo Hoo! I’m thrilled! We were at our little dog gathering that I sometimes go to on Wednesdays. It’s a good place for Tatum to get out and socialize and still have other dogs around that help her feel comfortable.
Towards the end I was handing out treats to Raygen, and Tatum was quite interested in them. She’s not usually interested in treats much, too nervous, unless another dog is around. So I’m pulling the treats out of my pocket and she sits! All by herself! No luring or anything. I was so happy. 🙂 The first steps are coming along.
She even gave me some attention, too. Was only about 5 or 10 seconds, she walked with me looking at me, but that’s okay, I’ll take and reward that. She’s relaxing, she’s exploring, and she’s coming along!
