She's arriving a little more confident every week. And although the group-heeling gets her to shut down completely (it's just too frantic, what with 8-10 dogs all moving in a relatively small space), she is venturing out more and more.
Last night, with a TON of encouragement, she not only did a weave through (dogs/handlers in a circle, one team heeling an in-and-out serpentine among all the posts) but also went through the agility tunnel!!!
;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
We're looking forward to the nicer, warmer weather, when we can open the doors to the (oversized) garage we're in and enlarge the heeling circle to include the driveway apron. With more room to spread out, I'm thinking Lady will have a less-stressful time moving along.
Good for her hope she continues to make strides.
Thank you for the update. It is great to hear how she is coming along week by week.

Thanks for the update Dan. Glad Lady is continuing to improve.
That's so awesome Dan it's great she's found an owner so willing to work with her and get her over her fears!
Heeling circle, or healing circle?
I think that will be a huge help.we can open the doors to the (oversized) garage we're in and enlarge the heeling circle to include the driveway apron.
Thanks for the update, Dan. I'm so glad to hear how good she's doing.

Never thought of it that way, but both spellings are certainly in play w/this beautiful canine soul.
