Training Updates

Lightning is a very spunky girl who lives up to her name with a big personality and a big voice. Lightning has been working on learning her “puppy puppy” recall, sit, down, making eye contact, walking/keeping on the left, and becoming comfortable when left alone in her crate. Lightning’s crate manners are a work in progress, and she is working on remembering that only toys are for chewing. She is such an enthusiastic girl, has picked up every command very quickly, and has started walking very nicely on my left after hardly any practice. She is such a sweet girl that loves to cuddle with her humans.
