    DefaultBelv met #5 today

    Well, she was everything *I* had hoped for, and more. Great person, invited all her dog peep friends over to check out Belv, had a great yard (back fence a little short though...only about 3.5 feet, which makes me a little nervous).

    Belv was great in the house, great with all the peeps, but...that boy just about pulled me off my feet on a flat collar coming up to their house. :no:

    Mom was with me, and said #5 looked a little freaked by this.

    Otherwise, Belv did so good. He was even doing "sit" and "down" for them by the time it was over. He was trying his best. I am just afraid the leash pulling may have turned her off.

    I really like her. But he might have been a little much for her.

    He's a Lab. Very typical. Nothing that we haven't all experienced. Poor Belv. He just needs to find someone who will work with him just a LITTLE. He's such a good boy. Very smart. Very much wants to please. Just needs a little manners work.

    Awww, dont count her out just yet. Every dog pulls. I have never known one not too. Im sure you have already told her that she will need to work with him.
    Good thoughts for you guys!

    Hi Connie, I am so glad that you liked her. could she maybe try an easy walk harness? It corrected my guy on the first try. I use it everyday.

    Easy Walk was the suggestion of her friend, the Pug agility trainer.

    We want to get him an Easy Walk for his next showing. Maybe it will help.

    I don't know. Maybe it went better than I thought. ?

    I really wish I could have him here so I could work with him. I feel like I could turn him around pretty quickly.

    If she doesn't want him because of that, she isn't the one for Belv! Don't give up, I use a gentle leader with Sammi and it works wonderful! She has to know that this boy could use some Obedience training, I wouldn't give up on her yet

    There are so many ways to work with the leash pulling. If she had dog peeps with her, I'm sure they talked over all the options! Fingers crossed that all Belv's other qualities were more important to her!
