So far she has been very quiet and scared of the other dogs here, understandably because they are all huge and confident in their home (or in Ruby's case friends with the big dogs and so feels pretty safe here). She hasn't made one peep even though at home she is known for barking at other dogs. If Ace the curious Pitbull gets too close she will snap at his nose but she can't really do any damage other than hurt poor Ace's feelings.
Tonight we have mostly just been letting her relax though we have insisted that she must walk everywhere she goes in the house or in the yard, no carrying, though she is allowed in a lap as soon as she is done walking. Her formal obedience training will begin tomorrow. Tonight she is helping my family play cards by sitting in laps. We have decided she is a good luck charm.
Her owners have said that she doesn't like her crate but she dives right in here, possibly because this place is so scary and new.
I hope she settles in and feels more comfortable soon. Tomorrow we start with Heel/Autosit and we will see how far we get.
