MaraBella is back in obedience school at Golden Grange Kennels and the training is going going going. I feel like we are always taking 3 steps forward and one back back back. Literally, as we are working on heeling and back is actually a command to get her into the healing start position. With treats visible, she can go quite a few paces. Squirrels, cats, of course other dogs, people and even birds and planes distract her. Yesterday we had to walk past a fox who was quite a distance away but still an attraction. Today we walked down a path, with horse and geese in the pasture on one side and 4 deer in the field on the other. She was so engrossed in the geese, that I don't think she even noticed the deer, following us with their eyes in the early morning light of this beautiful day.
Still she is characteristically sweet! Aaron adores her and enjoys a good tug game as much as MaraBella. I know this because he brought her a new toy so they could play.
She LOVES it!
