Leia is very sweet and playful. She is working on paw handling, walking on leash, and learning her name! She loves learning and training and will do anything for food! She sleeps through the night now and loves to play with her stuffed toys when she’s up!
Leia is a huge cuddle bug and has a spunky but super sweet personality! We are working hard on going out in public and exposing her to new things. Leia is making great progress on her “stay” command. We have now started to leave the room that she is “staying” in and she’s doing fantastic at that! She is an awesome pup to raise.
Leia is very smart and picks up on training cues very easily. She is super cuddly and will take any chance she gets to cuddle with her humans. She is amazing with her two cat brothers and they have really become friends. Leia has an extremely sweet but spunky personality which makes her a really awesome and fun dog to raise! We have been really building on her “mat” skills as well as her “leave its” and she’s doing really well on those. We are also working hard on keeping calmer when people come through the door and ignoring them when outside. She is doing amazing in her jacket and at restaurants, she will hold her down stay the entire time and ignore everything around her!
Leia is a year old! She is a very sweet girl who loves to work. She is working on perfecting all her skills and has learned a few new ones including back, touch and stand.
