Elsie had her RN before she walked nicely on leash for casual walks. Seriously, it took me two years to teach her loose leash walking, and we worked on it all. the. time.

I'm defective.

I want to do classes. I'm now in a position to do classes.

I cannot decide on classes.

That makes me feel slightly better haha. It just seems like the simplest of tasks and yet I've somehow failed at it lol.

I always thought it was something I seemed to be good at successfully teaching quickly, and yet...

Gah. What a brat. She used to walk nicely, but recently she's decided that that no longer needs to happen. Good thing she's cute and I know we'll get there eventually.
OMG, this is me with Quinn. Exactly! I don't know why she's been such a challenge in that regard.

If it makes you feel any better, one day (after I kind of gave up working on it for awhile, even) a switch just flipped and while she will still walk ahead of me, she doesn't pull on the leash any more. I could refine it a little bit more but she's honestly rarely on a leash and as long as she's not pulling I don't care. She just grew up LOL - even on the occasion where she does have a brain fart and hit the end of the leash, I stop and she falls back into position easily.

Lucy thinks LLW means "Run to the end of the leash, backup until mom catches up, rush forward again, repeat". Bonus points if she catches me off guard and yanks the leash out of my hand. I can teach my dog handstands, but 5 years after I adopted her she is still on a front clip harness.

Started to teach Wesley to jump over my back, went really well (only ten minutes so far). He didn't even kick me in the head, which is super impressive.

On the note of LLW, omg, don't get me started. No amount of rewarding for placement was going to make Wesley stop slowly going forward until he was out ahead. And then overnight he was like 'I hath grown up, I now LLW!'. It was the most frustrating and bizarre experience.


And Fran, don't worry about Merlin. The fact that's he's great with all environments and situations is the most important thing for him, the cued behaviors can come at any time but it needs socialization behind it, which you've obviously done awesome with. I don't even want to talk about what Wesley was like at ten months.
