Lyra - Week 1, Day 4

Posted by dfenzi in Lyra

Sleep is improving by the hour!  I still have to get up every few hours to let her potty, but the screaming is minimal now.

Today she visited my son's school.  We went early in the morning, so there were very few kids around.  After 10 minutes I took her home.  She handled it well, but I'm taking the conservative route when it comes to kids.  We'll continue slowly building up the intensity of her school visits by varying the time of day we arrive.

My husband took her to the Post Office and Costco.  He sat with her in the car, watching the world go by.  After a while she looked like she wanted to meet the world, so off they went....she did great.

Here is today's training session....we'll probably do one more this evening.  This video covers heeling, personal play without toys, retrieve and tug.  I am so pleased with her!


Beautiful session!

Fabulous session! You should not only be pleased with her but also yourself:o) She looks like such a fantastic pup to train!

Wonderful session. Had to laugh at the beginning when you said, “Look at you, you beautiful girl.” Gimme leaped up to look in the monitor and try to see who was saying such nice things about her. When she realized this wasn’t about her, she went to get a toy and try to distract me from it.

It was interesting to see how Gimme reacted to the different things you said and tone of voice. Some were really “special” and I’ll have to try them.

Question… when you were tugging with her underneath you, I noticed it seemed like you were swinging your legs back to push her side to side. Why?

Teach her to handle pressure. I’ll ratchet that up as she gets stronger, though she’s already pretty tough.

Wonderful interaction between you two! I’m going to hate to go back to work and miss my afternoon Lrya fix:-) Guess it will have to wait until the evening…
