Both Tony and I went for a walk this morning along the same path as we did yesterday with Brooke. We were both much more calmer, although I was not ready to go into a field with other dogs roaming. But I felt in control and a leader when I walked her. For the first time ever she did not respond to lorries, buses etc. Felt fantastic! I keep thinking of what you said about showing us what her real self is like and what she can do rather than the negative what she has or might do. Very helpful. Might use it in my work with clients!
After you left we noticed how calm she was. I rang the doorbell and she did not even come to the door. This morning we have been practising the doorbell and in charge of the door and she is responding well.
Still a long way to go for us, but we didnt find anything you told us yesterday that we could disagree or not make sense of. We are really very very grateful to you for helping us understand Brooke. She was so calm after you left. We all three fell asleep on the settee - both mind and body calm.
We have orderes two new leashs but I was happy with the rope but took on board what you said about it getting wet. I will finish her food off and order from your site next week.
Will keep up with what you told us and phone you in a couple of weeks.
