The momets in life that make you proud

Post by marie estey » Wed Sep 25, 2013 10:12 pm

We've had a crazy year so far moving into a new home getting a third dog. Theres one thing though I was sure was going to happen and that was getting my border collie into training classes. I was finally able to get her into a reactive dog class that uses positive reinforcement. We have 3 more weeks to go but I'm very excited/proud of how far she has come. She went from the dog that in the vary first class couldn't even be in the same room as a life size stuffed dog. To walking side by side and looking at strange dogs with out reacting. I don't think words can express how happy I am that she and I have come so far.
The trainer is wonderful and amazing and before I started the class she told me to read this book called click to calm Great read

Just thought I'd share.
