Nice dog, Julia. Do you know for a fact that she was \"force trained?\" The reason I ask is that everyone (inexperienced) who meets Caleb asks if he was abused :roll: because he will never show his fun side to anyone other than me. EVER. He's totally serious until he knows someone REALLY well. \"Trainers\" think he has no prey drive, but what he's really lacking is play drive (if you can really call it that). He will drag me all over my house with a tug and will play ball all day, but no one except my neighbors have ever seen it. If someone approaches, he's done playing. He will kill animals (rabbits, birds, etc.), but asking a serious dog to play with a stranger (which is basically what you're doing when you try to get them to bite a tug or sleeve Sch. style) is quite trying. Anyway, just asking, because that may just be in her nature...and she's relaxed because she's bonded to you now, not necessarily because she was afraid before. It's kind of a lost trait in this country, and when it pops up, no one knows how to handle it!
