Holly is a very independant puppy. She always wants to do her own thing and doesn't want attention when you want to give it to her, only when she wants it will she enjoy the attention. She is great with her obedience and she will come when called, usually. Sometimes if she is doing something that she really likes she will stop and look at you but outright refuse to come to you. I always treat her, or give her a lot of praise when she does come to me when I call her. She nows sit and will sit instantly when she sees you with a treat, or her food bowl. We are working on down and she is catching on to that great as well. I keep her leashed to me for a good portion of the day when she's inside because I have heard that makes a difference and will make her bond to me but I will do that for a few days and then let her have free roam agian and she will go back to her independant ways. Sometimes I get the feeling that she doesn't like me because when she sees Mark's friend's kids and when she sees Mark after he comes home from work she's really excited and wags her tail and everything but she never wags her tail for me . The only time she gets excited to see me is on the mornings I get up to take her outside. I know she probably likes seeing them because she doesn't see those kids all the time and she's excited to see Mark when he comes home from work but you would think she would show some emotion towards me.
