Last week, we took a new approach to training Harley with the help of Cesar Millan's dog behavioral online classes. The famous Dog Whisperer sure knows his stuff and the biggest change was us, not Harley. We had to be more strict and be the "alpha" at all times, at the same time displaying calm, assertive energy. We took Harley for a walk on the Banzai trail and it was great because it tired her out. Cesar says that all dogs need exercise (50%), discipline (25%) and affection (25%) in that order.
In just a couple of days, Harley has learned that she must sit for anything she receives,whether it's food, toy, water or affection. It works!! She's one happy camper (except for the car rides).
Hatley Elizabeth Sawyer was born on April 30th and she is adorable. At 5lbs 6 oz and 18" long, she was 2 weeks early and a little small, but she's doing very well. It's amazing to hold a newborn baby as they seem so delicate.
