She's looking fantastic Mike! Definately start keeping a lead on her. After 12-14 wks old, he need to stay close is going to diminish. Every recall refusal will just teach her she doesn't have to. It's SOOOO much easier to teach a pup rather then stop bad habits later. :wink:Mike Schoonbrood said:She leaps out of her crate n goes right up to people now, she's a LITTLE cautious if they stick their hand out, but she doesn't take more than half a step back, sniff the hand then she's OK again. She's getting to the point where i'm gonna have to start leashing her on the front lawn because she wants to run up to my neighbors... I can stop her by saying her name n running the opposite direction, but a time will come when her curiosity is more important to her than following her daddy lol.
