    GOSH!!!

    I am walking Lizzie last night and it is getting dark....so I have treats with me....and she is doing a GREAT heel...then I see some thing coming :yikes:

    And she starts to pull some...so I do a FAST u-turn.....then it sees Lizzie and comes RUNNING!

    So I put Lizzie in a sit stay and it is BLUE!!! I posted about him some time ago....well he is a catahula(SP?) puppy...no more than 6 months :(....that keeps coming down here! he is the sweetest too!

    Well he was ALL up in Lizzie's face last night....so I let them sniff...while I keep the lead loose and I stay calm...MAN it made a HUGE dif!! She was SO nice....but wanted NOTHING to do with him..poor guy! LOL

    So I keep walking...Lizzie is staying right beside me...she REALLY wanted to train and wanted this dog to leave her only so I could train with her! :D

    I give her the sit command...she sits...and guess what! He sits too! LOL and then I tell Lizzie to stay and I back up..He STAY TOO! :yikes:

    So I am doing some random commands with her and she doing them PERFECT!! Listening to ME and watching ME and NOT the dog!!

    *jumps up and down for joy* LOL

    So I do the HARDEST command for her..WATCH ME....put her in a sit....tell her the command...she does a PERFECT watch me! NOT once did she loose eye contac with with! YEAH! Even with him up her rear! ROFL!

    And of course I was praising her like mad during this time for being so awsome with a dog around!


    *sigh* I am SO happy!!!!!!!

    Now I REALLY feel that we can do 4H dog Shows....and her be okay with other dogs around!!!!!! YIPPPYYYY!!!


    Sorry I just had to share!

    Thanks Gempress and Tessa! :p

    I was REALLY suprised she did the watch me! :yikes: I mean she does not even have it down OUT OF SITE OF OTHER DOGS! :rolleyes:

    The only time she growled was when I made she stand and had the treat a little away from her face and BLue came up and started smelling the treat and she told NOT too! :lol-sign:
