Well, the first 10 days of her heat period she did not seem to give a rat's patoot. She did not want to engage much. She wanted to lie down a lot. Now, she is in full estrus. She is paying better attention but still wants to smell where coyotes have peed and leave her own message. She also has become a licker. She wants to lick us as if we were puppies or something. Just to increase the chaos at the local dog park I let her pee and worked her inside the fence when no one was there
Inga rode for the first time in a wheelbarrow and past numerous loose chickens and calves without even looking. This was a one wheel wheelbarrow, not one of those wagons. I said Up and Sit and away she went.
Yesterday I took her to big box stores and she did not even look at running screaming little kids. Took her to petco and she did not even look at other dogs. She did bark at the ferrets though, since they are obviously weasels.
Inga downs off lead among running chickens and tries not to look at them, if she does I yell No. Not yet proofed but we're working on it.
She has been off lead when feeding the cow and calf, and looks AWAY from these. Two things- when I first came out of the house with her there was my cow around the corner and the cow butted her hard and pushed her. This was the first time she had felt the true power of a large animal.
And the first time I let her off leash with the e collar on she found the cow and calf on a hillside and the calf ran and away she went. I yelled No and gave a size seven shock. and she changed course looking confused. But went for the calf again and another size seven shock. She yelped, quit the calf and came back to me .
Now we go around the cow and calf and she does not even look at the calf. So far so good.
I just wanted to give an up date . Now I can walk Inga off leash through the cow/calf herd. She does not look at calves. I can have her down at the henyard gate and open it. She does look at each running flapping chicken that comes out with mild interest. I take her to town big box stores and she is relaxed observing children on a sit or a down. They and their parents come to ask to pet but I say no not right now she is in training. I also park with her in her kennel cage in the back of my truck close to the grocery store doors and she gets to observe many friendly people with their children.
This Easter I know those big box stores will be loaded with children. I am going to take her there and I will say she is in training but you can help if your parents say OK. Here, toss these pieces of steak to her. Thank you all for teaching me this, it is a very important concept.
