Today we went on two walks and while the first one was pretty bad the second one already showed improvement. The first walk saw a lot of bucking, jumping up, trying to play with the leash, pulling forward and then refusing to move but by the end she was walking somewhat politely after I stalwartly refused to do anything but walk with her. You could almost hear her say "HMPH!"
The second walk was a few hours later and she was a bit more polite. Still some bucking and some pouting but she walked like a lady for a good portion of the walk and she only tried to play with the leash once. Her automatic Sit is not at all automatic yet. That is tomorrow's project.
I am excited to help Sadie and hopefully we will make lots of progress over the next few days and make walking her a more enjoyable experience for all involved. Welcome, Sadie!
