Hanna is my new female 11 week old GSP.
I had another female for 14 years who would not stop whinning whenever I had her chained up and I would leave her sight. Or If I was talking with someone while she was on lead.it was worse. In areas I worked outside where she could be off lead she would just come and go there was not a problem. But in some gated communities there are strict leash laws. her whinining and yelping were very loud . It got to the point I could not bring her to work with me or I was constantly having to move her lead to where I was working.
So With Princess Hanna things are going to be different. Shes got sit down well and "Look at me " as long as there is fresh chicken at My finger tips. Were working on Lay down . She isn't getting "shake" which I find rather odd. maybe its too frivilous.
Today I had her at work with me. I put up two eight paneled exersize pens with her airline crate she travels in the truck with inside along with balls and bully sticks. She whined a lot and then would settle. As she settled for a bit I would say good girl and give her a treat. Then when I left she started the whining again. Finnally she went in her crate and slept.
((((((I need ANY suggestions on how I'm doing or not doing so far ))))))))
Just help in general. I am ingnoring the whining that amps up into the forlorn howl as much as possible. I turn my back and that does nothing to stop her.
Having her on a lead is impossible Shes always getting wrapped around twigs and trees and stones. I did hook her up to my belt one day and had her walk with me as I wheelbarrowed mulch around . The home owners were not there.
I'm going to begin working on heel soon. Her next puppy class Is this Sunday. I think shes a VERY smart girl.
Shes already pottly trained .to go in ground cover. I have been with her practically 24/7 since Jan11. except to leave her in her crate while I work at home or in the truck while I shop/ She sleeps then .
my appologies for the lenght.
