Kelli & Coffey are doing well! Last class is coming up this week. The class uses massages, treats, voice and toys as rewards.
This is a work-in-progress and Coffey is responding and learning to calm his overexcitement and pay attention to Kelli (look to her for cues) when he's excited. It is a desensitization class using calming techniques.
The barking at everyone and everything going by on the street in front of house has quieted by about 90%!!!!!!!!!
She has also been working on sending him to a target and return and working on sitting and focusing on her at all doors & thresh holds again.
These are all things (recall, autostops, stay, etc) that Coffey learned during our basic commands and obedience training but the emphasis is a little different in this class (goal/focus).
Will continue to practice and use these techniques in different situations. It is VERY good to have multiple positive approaches in the arsenal!

He is Learning 'what is it / who is it . . . in a happy voice . . . we look to see what he and Tayamni are looking at for them to calm (or quiet)the both down.
I need to start this, immediately, because Sitka is getting her to follow HIS craziness.
