As some of you may have seen in another thread about bonding started by...I think it was Taraboombara ?... that I commented on the fact that I hadn't yet 'bonded' with Inca in the way I usually do with GSD's.
Pleased to say that since my youngest son returned to school on Monday, and eldest returned yesterday, the bond is now developing at an extroadinary rate. I was hoping that when I had private one-on-one time with her where I could really focus without the kid's distracting me with their bickering etc, things would fall into place - and they have.
I have been training outside with her on and off each day for small 5-10 minute periods each time, and training-wise I am finding her a bloody dream! She is soo responsive to just the slightest tone of voice it's not funny.
There is no battling on the lead wanting to be somewhere else, no fighting against the training collar, nothing. Just pure desire to do whatever I ask of her. Magic.
Together with the fact that her appetite has picked up dramatically and she is eating like a ruddy horse, I think all these things have allowed that bonding process to finally take place.
(Don't feel like bonding at this precise moment though as she's been running in and out of the rain, and wishes to make me wet like her! )
Taraboombara, or whoever it was, how are you going with your bonding with Jade?
