Training Update

WOW! That about sums it up! We had our first for real training session, on Saturday. It was amazing. We learned all about our Dogtra collar and then go to work. We worked on come/heel and already I have noticed changes. Bandit has not growled at Shadow at all. Shadow growled at Bandit for laying on her tail! Sisters will always fight about something! So we have been praticing the Come command around the house and in the yard, the hardest part is once we start a training session she catches on quick to what we are doing and will just stay heeled. Now when I am home I wait for Bandit to go upstars or somewhere and call her. Results are very quick. I feel Bandit is less like "What do I do? What do I do?!" and more like "Ma, what do you want me to do? I'll do it!" Pretty soon I think Bandit will be giving Rin Tin Tin a run for her money!
As for Shadow? She's going to take a nap!

Boundaries are good. Shadow can relax now that Bandit is feeling more comfortable.

Awesome news! German shepherds do so well with proper training; being working dogs, they need to have something to keep their minds occupied. Keep up the good work!
