Well we are halfway through with Ms. Luby's time here with us. She is now reliable off leash and comes when called (though sometimes a little incentive from the collar is necessary). It is always a happy day when the boarders get their first walk with no physical leash. I hope her owners don't mind but Luby will be coming home with some grass stains from playing with Ace.
The rest of her obedience is going fine. We are still arguing about Down but she is slowly, grudgingly, seeing my point of view about this. It is, infact, easier to just lay down than it is to argue, ignore, pout, then wilt down to the ground. She held a Down/Stay for about an hour today in the house with only 2 mistakes. We will start Place soon and that will make it easier.
Tomorrow we are just working on her obedience and pushing Stay and Down, which are the two areas where she toils the most. For now she is snoozing in her kennel before "last-chance potty."
