is different. 😢❤️ We still see her, or think we do every now and then. The group is different with out her. She was the glue keeping them together. Now Becca does her thing (like sleeping downstairs) and the Chesapeake sleeps upstairs by choice.
Hagel is, like we expected, taking her place. But being 14 months old, getting a baby-sister, being in charge of Becca in heat/season is a lot to shoulder. Of course she came in heat/season as well yesterday- so she’s a bit occupied with life at the moment.
Becca injury is healing fine though it’s warm, humid and flies everywhere. But the honey mixture we use on her stitches is super. (She managed to attach herself to her own BGB fastener and made a 4 cm long hole on herself while walking in the leash. Probably not possible for anybody but Becca 🙈😅🤪)
Hylsa is a quick student. I planned to do tutorial film clips with her, but she catches on faster than I manage to film 😝
Like with temptation I showed her the treats in my hands once, closed them when she chose them and reward her from my mouth when she made eye contact. And the she didn’t make any serious attempts for the hands anymore.
Today we tried the ‘up’ command and up into standing. So now she jumps into heel too 😅.
We tried sit, stay, laying down the retrie object, send and deliver. The only part she is not sure of is when she is allowed to start after the sending command. So I could focus on rewarding the start, not the lifting or the delivery.
And still some say that Chesapeake’s are stubborn and difficult to train?! Difficult yes, because every single little thing you do will be remembered. So choose wisely...
Well all of us write here, both humans and dogs ;) At least that was the plan but it seems it´s mostly me Robyn who´s attached to the keyboard...
