    Not exactly off leash but the first step towards it for one block without correction or redirection. My speed is pretty darn slow so that is saying something for the temptation to run. Victor has already let me know how good the air feels against his skin. He was down right prancy. I wish i would have had the camera with me. Normally i heel on the left but this time I left Victor leashed on my right and had her with her dragging leash (it's a very light leash) on my left. She stayed in position. She didn't look at cats or other dogs or blowing paper. WE had good distraction with a backfiring car, and some people doing lawn work. IF I stopped without warning it took her exactly 2 feet to figure it out and she always looked sheepish as she came to heel. I told her...your such a good girl...your such a pretty darn special good girl and I love you to pieces. Atta way to do it! I whistled happy tunes. I do not use treats for this. It was so sweet when i allowed Victor back on her left while we walked past a couple houses that are containing ill behaved dogs at the window. She would lick him lightly on the muzzle without losing stride as if for reassurance. One time when we were walking both leashed she leaned her head on him briefly.
    It was a real kodak moment but you can't do that when your training. Or at least I can't. Camera breaks my focus. SO that's the Pepper update. She is making Victor look sloppy and he is seeing that too! I am so grateful he is here to help me teach her this.

    That's good news smkie! I am still in awe of just how far she's come since she found you :)

    thank you!

    Even zoom and I agreed that in the beginning who would have guessed that all that smart was in there. She is really a dandy and I am so proud of her. Thanks for letting me share.
