Ally has really settled in nicely. She had a huge accomplishment of learning to go down a full flight of stairs today. She has met several family members and friends and never barks at anyone. She has her rambunctious pup moments but overall everyone that has met her is surprised at how calm and gentle-natured a pup she is. Ally brightens up everyone’s day!
Ally has made great progress in waiting and not barking when I get her food ready. She will lay down and wait until released, which is an amazing accomplishment. Ally loves to snuggle with my son and waits for him on the landing to upstairs every morning. She has grown so much and now nicely fills out her NSD vest. She remains hesitant to put on her car harness but loves car rides. Her new favourite game is hide and seek, where I hide her kibble or treats around the house and then she must sniff them out. No treat has been missed yet!
Ally is growing up so fast and continues to impress us! She started high school this month and will be learning new skills as well as how to be more independent at home. In public, she is going to be working on settling with less handler support and working around more and more distractions!
Ally is affectionate, attentive, and super sharp! I am so impressed with her leash walking skills, public manners, ability to settle, and how quickly she learns. Ally just turned one and is continuing to work on new skills such as chin, back up and stand.
