I haven't done a whole lot this week either. The weather has been getting nicer & I've been taking longer walks w/ the dogs. They love it. Sherman is definately showing his age though. He used to fly through an hour w/ energy to spare. He is visably pooped at the end of a long stroll.

Penny & I had a great class on Monday though. Her supervised separation has vastly improved...through no work on my part. But it's comforting.

Lola continues to react to everything she sees. So tonight I decided it was time to do something about it. I took a whole bunch of really good treats & my clicker on our walk. I worked w/ her a lot on attention. I managed to get really good attention to her during people distractions, but we did have a little fit w/ a dog that was walking across the street. And I was thrilled that she didn't react at all to a cat that crossed our path. She got a jackpot for that. We'll continue to work on this. LLW really isn't much of an issue. She's still on the Easy Walk and I have to stop & wait her out every 10 minutes or so, but she catchs on fast. I need to run her through all of her behaviors tomorrow night as we missed class on Saturday (there was a Parvo outbreak at the shelter & I decided to err on the side of caution).
