Known Issues & Progress

Dani is a sweet, laid back dog. So much so that I had to CARRY her out to the truck from Animal Control because she would not walk on a lead. She was up jumping on the door of her kennel and barking happily at me while I was on the other side of the door, but when I slipped inside with her she hunkered on the floor and got real quiet.
Once she settled in here at Piney Mountain, she came out of her shell and has become a friendly, playful dog. She still resists walking on a lead, but she does “come” when called and will go “In your room” for a treat. She enjoys rowdy play and racing around the play yard with other dogs. She gets along with everyone. She’s a little protective of her food.

Dani is settling in nicely.

“NOooo, I’m staying in my safe place.”

Open door does not tempt Dani! “Noo, I’m staying.” (vid)



She takes obedience of my commands to a new level! (vid)

One last play session for these two friends.

Waiting to board The Bus to Jersey!
