Anyway, first brag is on Abby. We took both dogs to Petsmart on Thursday to buy dog food. She actually figured how to walk on the leash! We had a couple feet-planted "I don't wanna" moments, but overall she was great. Also, the trainer there saw us and of course came over to say hi. She asked if she could give Abby a treat and I said yes, but she had to make her sit first. You could tell she didn't think Abby would do it, but she asked her to anyway and Abby sat down perfectly immediately. The trainer was SUPER impressed. We have about 85% recall with her (unless she thinks she's in trouble for chewing up one of the dog dishes) and she will come to whichever of us calls her (she'll literally go around whoever didn't call her if they're in the way to get to the one who did call her).
As for Cash, he LOVES Abby now. He's teaching her the duties of a guard dog and has even taught her to howl when emergency vehicles go by. It also seems like having Abby around has lessened his dog reactiveness, which is a HUGE blessing.
Pics to come. Haven't uploaded them yet.
