    Riley is the same way. The person has to prove they mean it, and can back it up before he will even think of listening.

    I was the only one that ever did training with Ace and I am the only person he will do stuff for, I don't mind it that much, because of that he goes pretty much everywhere with me :) And Courtney has gotten to the point that the only people she will come and listen to is myself and my 11 yr old son :)

    Kailey spazzes out when new people try to give her commands. She does them perfectly, though. Wish she was that crazy about working with me.
    There are some things that she won't do for anyone but me, I guess. So I do hold some sort of value in her eyes. Maybe... lol

    Kaiden will work for anyone, he's not picky. Dekka will work for people if they have a ball or food and I am right there. Bounce not really, Dash I don't know. Seren might, but then her head might explode so no guarantees...

    Foster listens to everyone equally.....

    And by equally I mean not terribly well... He does the "I CAN'T hear you" better than any dog I know... I truly failed him that way...

    Diamond will listen to most anyone, unless they are too harsh sounding then she runs to a safe person....

    Mindy will listen to anyone, but lovingly listens to my husband, anyone else gets a hmphhh if I *have* to response with a glare... But she's never not listened just done it under obvious protest... LOL

    Siren it's too soon to tell yet...

    Hahaha, Abby will work for my best friend. She'll actually work better for my best friend in most areas... I try and make myself feel better by saying my friend is just a better trainer all around (which is true) but sometimes I wonder if our training relationship or relationship in general is still lacking.
    The first time I saw her heeling with my friend, it was a beautiful sight. But I felt that pang of envy...:eek: She just looked so engaged, so switched on and above all, so happy.

    I think this is something I need to address...

    Grace is hilarious - she will listen to everyone 90% of the time and do everything in such a happy and excited manner... just like a 6 month old puppy... except she is 11. And then the other 10% of the time, she ignore everyone but still wander around the vicinity in an excited and happy manner. She can be such a doofus. :p
