In other news, she's doing great! She's outgoing, loves playing with Eclipse, isn't afraid of our steps, tries to get in and out of the car by herself, and is learning manners and cues.
We are doing the NILIF (Nothing In Life Is Free) with all the dogs, including Tiki.All that means is they must do something for anything they want. If they want outside, they have to sit, if they want a love, they have to do something (we can love on them as much as we want, but if they ask to be loved on we ask them to do something). Tiki's getting the idea quickly and it's not so uncommon in the service dog world, it's just never called that *grin* She's beginning to understand "sit", "Tiki", "come here", "Better Go Now", "Wait", "Release" and the beginnings of zen. We're going to mostly be doing the Sue Ailsby Training Levels with her as well as putting her in obedience classes possibly starting next week. We are doing clicker training with her and she already know that "click means treat" so all is well. She's going to the vet Friday for some shots (they missed the 8 week shot I believe, so we're going to do some juggling of shots) and we'll get a weight on her then. She's a big girl, short and stout. I love me some good ole' English, blocky-head labs!
I'll update again soon, right now it's dog, kid and me nap time I do believe!
