Today we started with the basics of basic. We fitted her with a dainty little pinch collar to help with teaching her in a way she understands and we started with loose leash walking, Heel and Autosit, Implied Stay and Come. She is distractible and I kept her workouts short but we made progress in pretty much everything. I even got a few automatic sits without needing to help her!
I have a feeling she will learn fast and then start being a goober and seeing what she can get away with. For now she is making friends with the other dogs and playing very nicely. I'm afraid my girl Akita, Dana, frightened her pretty well when they were playing because Dana got excited and let out a very loud, booming bark which Bella was not expecting and she jumped out of her skin and scooted back to her kennel. As soon as she realized Dana just has a big voice the game resumed and her feelings weren't hurt for long. I'm excited to see how far we can take Bella this week. It should be fun!
