I am SO proud of Sky We took her onto the beach today (well the OH did while I ate an ice cream on the pier) and we managed to walk her off the lead all the way down the pier. It may not sound that amazing but it's the summer holidays so there are kids and dogs everywhere. Usually we would have to keep calling Sky back and putting her on her lead. Not because she's nasty but because she's easily distracted when she sees birds/dogs/kids with footballs. Well she didn't do any of that today. She was perfect and didn't need to be corrected once. :thumbup: She's also started barking at Candy. Not nastily but when they're playing. This is a MAJOR break through! Her bark is terrifying though, very deep like a male GSDs. I feel like I've really turned a corner with her. All my hard work is starting to pay off :yesnod: Edit: And today she is 9 months!
