Big changes. 

 Lu has a new window. I have a new house. It’s been a difficult transition for both of us to go from acreage to living in a hamlet. There are people here. There are dogs here. And there are A LOT  of cats here. 

Most people I notice walk their dogs by opening their front door and letting them run free. This is annoying but a good training opportunity. Lu freaks out when she sees these dogs run by and really freaks out when she sees them pee on her property. Lol However, Lu has met a few dogs while she is out back on her cable (fencing is definitely on my list of home improvement). She has greeted and even played with these unsupervised dogs. 

I have had to retrain Lu in a few areas since moving here:

Car drives by – no longer need to be alerted to this since we are in town. Lots of cars drive by. 

Mastered✅

People within eye shot of house – nope don’t need to know that either. Only if they come to the door or  are actually on the property. 

Mastered ✅

Cats and dogs – didn’t need to know about it before don’t really need to know about it now.

 Work in progress. 

  It’s a good move. It’s what Lu and I both needed. We get ample opportunities to work on her issues ( and mine) and I don’t need to go looking for dogs to practise with. They are literally right outside my door.

  1. You’ve done so well with your training of Lu! Dogs around here are allowed to roam free as well, but I have to keep Millie and Pearl behind a fence as they are hunting dogs and would eat everyone’s cats, rabbits and chickens!
