fidgeting question

So I will be getting fury here hopefully within the next couple weeks. Well the one problem I want to really stop with her is her fidgeting when tied. Im thinking it is just from not being out in a long time and not being used to being tied. She pulled back 2 times but then danced around the entire time. So any ideas to get her used to it again. Should I tie her and work around her and do all the chores? I would really appreciate the help.

It would probably help desensitize her to plastic bags, tarps and other items. It will build her confidence in you and herself. Maybe it would eliminate some of the problems she is having. Then, as you said I would just slowly increase the amount of time you leave her tied. One day brush her then leave her tied for half an hour. A couple days later maybe make it an hour. It doesn't have to be everyday. It will build her patience.

You can also do alot of pressure exercises.... put pressure on the halter and when she moves toward you release, this will get her respecting her halter.
