Willow has really settled in here. She is very good with kids and other dogs when she is off leash. She enjoys her three walks each day and is improving with her leash reactivity issues. The most challenging are other dogs that are also leashed, or when they bark at her first. She has great strength when she pulls and you want to make sure that you are grounded while holding onto the leash. Her eating and sleeping habits are good and she has never been tempted to beg for food while others are eating. She enjoys her swimming pool and any games that include catching a tennis ball or any type of "tug of war". We continue to work on her "greeting skills" when someone is at the door. Her excitement to greet people can be a bit overwhelming and teaching her other options is on the "current work list". I've noticed that she is quick to learn new things and really likes to "please". The dog hair keeps coming.
