Not being let off the leash as much is Molly. She has been a very bad girl, attacking other dogs for no reason. Only a few, but randomly, nice dogs, and luckily dogs that belong to people we know. It's upsetting and embarrassing (she hasn't drawn blood, but she has come away with mouthfuls of fur on two occasions. Not a good look.).
A dog trainer came out to the house on Thursday. Although she gave me some general training tools that I will put into practice, she couldn't explain why it was happening. Only to continue to work on training her to not only to obey our commands, but make her own good choices! I'm not sure how this is going to work…
Molly loved the trainer and would have followed her out the gate given half a chance. I've put it down to her having superior, different treats (possum meat was a big hit), but she is in high demand so she must have some happy clients (not just the dogs). Molly and I will persevere with trying to follow the worksheets, as cartoonists don't get paid as much as dog trainers ($260 for two hours. Including treats...).
Back to the drawing board (I'm trying to get ahead so I can have a Christmas break with my sister).
Ta ta for now.
