    Hi all
    Today I took Sandstorm and Minnie to the cranberry bog- wide open trails. We were walking and had plenty of time to see a jogger coming our way. I had both SS and Minnie on short leashes and was especially concerned about Sandstorm, as he is reactive in these situations. This jogger was nearer to us than Sandstorm's critical distance, so I had him on a very short leash 2 ft. I stood in front of him, Minnie was very close to. I had treats out and told them to stay, be good dogs, let the person pass, calmly talking. SS was looking at me and both dogs were PERFECT!! I also had the strong feeling that SS wanted to be successful at this. I thank Caro for this too! GOOD DOGS! I just have to be 100 % consistent.

    I have a really cute mental picture of little Minnie just stopping and waiting and being really good, no idea why, but just because her big brother is doing it (or maybe because there's a treat on hand)! What a relief - maybe Minnie won't pick up any bad habits and Sandstorm wants to be the strong big brother.

    Lol, I think you're right! Minnie does watch SS and wants to do what he does! It's funny when Sandstorm charges at the TV and barks Minnie does it too, right behind him! I'm so proud of SS!
