Haahahahah.

Look at Tehya playing and chasing other dogs! She was at the front then the farthest out, then back at the front! What a change. What a total change.

I wish I had filmed my boys trying to coax her out to play. Oh! Now she'll give them such a run for their money. They will both be panting! Looks like she could run them into the ground!

She is faster than Jasper! :)
(much to his consternation.. lol)

Once she gets to know strange dogs, she is willing to give them a chance, unless they try to chase her. That is still a bit too much yet. It still triggers her fear-response. But her moments of panic are getting shorter and shorter. And she has learned to come to me, and I will make the big scary dog stop chasing her.

She has been intermittently hanging out with these 2 dogs for months. They show little or no inclination to try to chase/catch her, so they are ok in her mind.. lol

I love when Jasper gets the ball.....watch his back legs putting on the breaks when he gets it. :) Perfect!

Newest update-
Tehya began playing with Cayenne, a lovely ShiloX Yr.old pup

She would bark, and Cayenne would run and Tehya would chase, then Cayenne would turn around, and Tehya would run away.
Cayenne seemed to know Tehya was only able to handle a certain amount of being the chasee- and would stop after only 10-20 feet and then let Tehya chase her again :lol:
This game went on for about 15-20 minutes, with breaks while Cayenne kept trying to dig her ball out of a hole.. LOL

She is making such progress. I am so proud of her! :D


Oh- and she did her first actual Jump-Catch of a flying ball the other day too!
