I own an Australian Kelpie mix that quite smart and extrememly athletic. She loves to chase anything that moves and is working on improving her socialization skills. I also have a Cattle Dog mix that loves chasing tennis balls and giving hugs.
I loved the day when Kendyll first swam at Fiesta Island. She had never shown interest before, but one day decided she would show me she really could swim. She took off down the hill and swam in huge circles. Then came running back to me, tail held high, very proud of herself!
We have worked extensively with a trainer and I have gained a lot of knowledge in the long amount of time we have worked with her. I have picked up a lot of useful tools from her based on positive reinforcement. I have also worked for over a year at a puppy kindergarten class and have picked up a lot of good training ideas.
I love to take my dogs for walks and hikes whenever we get the chance. We would love to work on our socialization skills and make new friends.
