“Since taking this class, we have been working on our mat a lot, which isn’t difficult because Penny does react a lot even with our new curtains. I’m really surprised by how much calmer and independent she has become! She used to just sit and stare at me all day as I worked on the computer but now she will go take a nap on the couch, which doesn’t sound like much but is HUGE for her. We leave her mat out all the time, and she spends so much time laying on it by herself. We usually have lunch on the patio now, with her on her mat, and she has been doing great with distractions in the distance.
A huge thing for us has been her toleration for separation. I have a camera to watch her and when we leave for a couple minutes, she lays down on her mat and waits! It takes her much longer to start barking. We are still a work in progress, but it feels really nice to have the tools I learned in this class to help teach her how to handle her triggers.”
