Sorry re incompetance on PC. Shehas had basic training.m will sit stay wait for her food and come to a whistle... sometimes. i am sure she has some level of hearing loss ie low sounds she hasnever heard me arrive home a normal voice no response unless she sees you. Is fixed meaning neutered ? she is. she uses a normal leather collar and lead but I have a half choke.when she decides to play tuggy with the lead i can only let go as she is a strong girl and will grab my sleeve for tugging should she be in the mood and loses the lead.I also turn away and ignore if this is safe. she does this but as soon as released the hyper state returns. I think the tugging is both a game, she is very playful and a control because it does not happen when we are walking up to the shore but when it is time during the walk for control or time to return home. teachi9ng her at home to tug to leave and be rwarded in thye hope this will cross over to outdoors. a little success.She has one day at day care where she runs with a pack. hugely enjoyed bu8t can it be teaching her wrong ways? hope not.O)n the play theme she sometimes approach. es small dogs vigourisly and I think she sees a soft toy i hold her by the collar as small dog approaches and she is doing well with this restraint. but sometimes I feel very trapped and friends whowere walking her have now gone. Hope tthey can return! Hope tis helps. She is also a very social dog loving bigger dogs and people. OK? thanks
