Just some notes on what we have learned about Neilla.

She is a very clean dog, she doesn't like mud, will go around or tip toe a muddy area.

She doesn't like it when it is windy, snowing and cold.

Good thing I had German Shedders before her, I have brushed out a plastic grocery bag full of hair. Not sure if she is going to shed this much in the future or if it is just purging the old coarse coat. She is double coated so I do expect her to seasonal shed.

Yesterday was a good dog/cat day. Fuzzybutt came upstairs late afternoon because that when she wants her raw food. She had just been sitting on the other side of her safe gate and cried, but yesterday she came through the gate, through the living room and over to the kitchen and Neilla was sitting by Bill in the living room. Neilla did get a little excited when Fuzz was near by in the kitchen. Had the hubby distract Neilla with some food which is what I use to treat her. She is so food motivated we can use Kibble as a treat. So I want her to get rewarded for being a good girl and not over reacting at the cat.

We don't believe that she spent much time in a house. It mentally wears her out when she has access to the house.

Neilla can run around the house with a drag leash on and never trip herself or get tangled up with furniture.

Val, she is just gorgeous, love the pic of her watching over you with paws on the sofa, as well as enjoying her treat toy. wub She has come a long way and with your knowledge and training she will be the perfect dog for Bill and you. Hopefully Fuzzybutt will agree with that sentence too. wink
