Meet Pecan:

Pecan has really become a Peach.  She’s come such a long way and is looking to make her next move into a quiet, patient home willing to help her build her confidence.  With the help of some confidence building cues she’s learning how to be a dog again and to move freely around the house instead of hiding in a corner.  She loves traveling and walks very well on a leash, as long as there isn’t anything scary around.  She is more of a morning girl and really enjoys playing and running around early in the day.  She’s doing really well with her cues.  We’re using hand targeting as a recall as well as to help her explore new areas and meet new people.  She has a “let’s go” cue to ask her to move out of an area or to come out of her crate.  She still panics under certain situations but we’re trying not to let her dart back to her crate for safety but rather teaching her how to bring herself out of a panic.  She’s doing well with the “wait” cue and “ok” as a release cue in most of these situations but we sometimes need to use Click to Calm to relax her during high stress situations.  She listens very well to “leave it” if she thinks about playing with something that isn’t hers and is learning to play with toys.  She’s going to be a fun girl to watch as she learns to be a real dog.
