Default Bonnie is so smart

It was a really hot day out today, up around 90 so I just took Bonnie into the arena with me, partly because I could not leave anyone in the Van but also Kris is nursing that cut on her pad.

I ended up going in early and letting Bonnie have a good run, then parked in town on the shady side of the street and took her for a walk. She has walked on a loose leash practically from day One and today was no exception. I haven't really worked on any sort of competition heel with her, just want her to not pull. She is smart enough that when I first started, I would stop every time she put tension on the leash and she learned really fast if she wanted to go somewhere she better not pull.

I walked down the shady side of the street and around the block down to the Pet Store. Took her into the Pet Store and walked her around and they gave her a treat just before we left. She would like to say hello to everyone but is very polite about it and if they want to pat her, she sits.
Maybe she just feels so easy because Kris was so hard and took so much training compared to what I have given Bonnie.

Maybe Kris filled her in on the ground rules?

Some dogs really are much easier to work with, more intuitive and responsive, and willing to please. Years ago I had a Bull Mastiff, Chad, and was able to have him on and off leash trained at four to five months old. It was almost like he trained himself, once he understood what I wanted he'd do whatever I needed him to do. He was quite the contrast to my Doberman, Lady, she was a real pill to train and took lots of work. My current dog, a Ridgeback/Pit mixed, Naomi, who I adopted recently, is a lot like Chad, she basically just does what I need her to do...very easy to be with. Regardless, dogs sure are very cool people!

Kris and Bonnie. As different as day and night to train but love them both.

Your two dogs are lovely!

Lady was a red Dob too, a deep mocha color with bright topaz colored eyes; she ultimately became a great friend and guradian, and well behaved, we just had to survive her youthful high spirits together

Each dog sure has his/her own personality!
