Very pleased with Gilda yesterday
I brought up to my tiny yard by the road where she was very nervous again (not helped by flapping plastic bag in the freezing wind), but she stayed with me and had a small feed. We then worked on "not walking all over the handler" (a favourite game for some haffies apparently)
, which at first she didn't get the hang of and regarded her small human as being a mere minor obstacle in her way
. However, with a bit of NH making my diminuative 5'3 into a would be 6' she quickly learnt to keep out of my space. We then did some moving of the hind quarters which to begin with required some reasonable thumb pressure to get her to go over, but by the end of the session she was turning on the forehand both ways by simple word command and a movement from my hand
You can see her processing information and she learns very fast.
More of the same today, but much better first off. Had a grooming session in the stable tied up and had to wait quietly while tasha and I had a chat.
But we have a few pics :)
Oh look, a car
Scary flappy bag being not so scary
