Default Can I have a teensy brag?

Nothing all that impressive, but I was so happy all the same.

Today, Sierra walked home from work with me. On her flat collar. At almost a perfect loose leash heel with focus on me for almost the whole walk.

WOO!

My girl is coming around!

Thanks!

It's not a fancy ribbon or anything, but it gives me hope!

That's not even a teensy brag. I am fully convinced that teaching good leash manners is far harder than just about any other skill. Brag away - I'm certainly impressed!

I don't think it's consistent yet by any means, but the fact that I was able to get that kind of focus out of her and actually get almost a whole walk that way was so great!! I just have to keep it up

That's AWESOME Nilly! Not teensy at all - I'm still working on that perfect loose leash walk with Finn, we're far from perfect. Keep it up!

Having met the enthusiastic Sierra its not a small accomplishment. Some dogs are born with LLW skills (like the whippets) others have a talent for dragging humans all over the place

Horray!

WOW! Congrats! I wish I could say the same for sadie. I'm only able to do that with the Easy Walk harness.
