Dancing monkeys!

Churry visited her first store tonight, Lowes.  She did a pretty good job.  I really need to learn how to work her Halti correctly so she can start wearing it or I need to find something else to help with her constant pulling!  Puppy raisers...any advice?  Other than the pulling, she behaved well.  As soon as we would stop to look at something she would immediately sit down and wait for us very patiently.    While we were there we looked at the scary Halloween decorations, but she didn't think they were very scary.  She just sat and had her "no reaction to anything" attitude she usually does.  So we continued on and found some Christmas decorations.  There was a nice variety of those stuffed animals that sing and dance.  She was quite interested in these.  She just did not think this was normal and didn't really want them to get too close to her.  Particularly the monkey that danced to Tic Toc.  She hid behind me and peeked out to see that one.  The others she just backed up a bit and stared at them.  Her tail was wagging the whole time, though, so I don't think she was terrified, but I do think we will be paying a return visit to the dancing monkeys!    We have now gone on a car outing three days in a row with no car sickness!!!  This makes it MUCH easier to take her places.

  1. Hurray for Churry!
    Carlin- What kind of collar do you use? Spark has a Martendale I think is what it's called. It is a cloth collar with half of it being chain. Does that make sense?
    I also use a Gentle Leader, rather than a Halti. Just because I've heard that they are easier to use and that you have more control over the dog. Spark didn't start using his GL until he was around 5 months old.
    Hope this helps.
