    I take Bo and walk her through the local town a couple of times a week and on a Sunday (weather permitting) we have been going to the car boot up the road. I am trying to get her more used to being amongst a lot of other people and dogs which are her 2 favourite things in the world !!

    On Sunday we are going to see a dog agility team display at a local Steam Fair and Bo will be coming with us. I walk with a treat in my hand holding the treat at waist height to get her to look at me which works about 25% of the time. I'm going to bake a liver cake to take pieces with us but is there anything else I should be doing ?

    does Bo play tug? :huh:
    teaching a really powerful addiction to ONE super-special toy can be a huge help;
    say her sacred Name, whip out the toy, 15-seconds of tug, DROP, put it away. ;)
