wow... you are soooooo close. Do you know where coverstone is? It's right off of 234 and the pizza hut is right there? I believe the TGI Fridays is across 234 right there... I live right off Coverstone.

Ha yeah - we are on the other side of Sudley from you! Are there any good places to walk in the area? We have been walking Illy around our subdivision but were thinking about going to Bull Run Park or somewhere. We should meet up sometime!

I take Bamm to the Battlefield all the time. There's tons and tons of different trails all over the place. So wait... do you live near Carlyle Station apartments? That's off of Williamson Blvd which is the street directly across Sudley.

No, we live a bit further down Williamson in some townhouses before you hit Sudley Manor.

Yeah, crazy! Do you have to pay to get into Bull Run Park? Maybe we can meet you there sometime, or meet up on a walk somewhere else. I'd love to have Illy meet some new friends!

Anyone else still reading this, sorry for hijacking my own thread - I would still love any advice on how to acclimate her to doors and not be scared of them. Right now I'm just acting nonchalant when we have to go through one, but if there's something better I could be doing, I'd love to know.

Thanks!

I think, if she does like food and treats, clicking would be good. As a sort of desensitisation (i slaughter the spelling of that word every time, sorry). If she'll eat her meals near a door, put them maybe a few feet away, and the next meal move a little closer, until she's eating in the doorway. If she's hesitant, move the dish back a bit. Be very quite during this and don't make any moves or noises that might scare her.

Obviously she needs to go through doors to get to the walks which she seemingly enjoys...pretty sound she'll probably learn doors = good things.

Ah, great idea on the eating near the door. She's not a GREAT eater - she'll eat but noises do send her back to her crate. She ate out of my hand pretty well today. The clicker always startles her so I need to try muffling it a little bit.

I took her around the house today on the lead, because on her own she won't leave a certain square area. She was nervous at first but then started sniffing and I kept praising her when she relaxed and her tail was wagging a ton. So I thought that was good. Of course, as soon as I dropped the lead she ran off into her crate.

But I THINK that's a step forward!
