hey guys how was your day?
today i met up with occy, and her pups!
we went to the dog park and the beach and she gave me some pointers to help with gyps's agro towards other dogs.
for the first 10min i used a soft muzzle on gyps and then removed it. gyps was nervous at first but soon was happily sniffing away with the other dogs.
gyps and shilo (sp) got into a fight over a ball (no blood or biting) just alot of gowling, nashing of teeth and pinning...
they stopped without us physically pulling them apart we just called them off and with in the minute they were both gallavanting around again.
its easy to see now that gyp's agression is because she is possesive over the things she cares about most (me and balls)
the pups ran round for an hour then we took them to the beach where we met a 5 month old pup who has decided she loves sheps!! gyps growled at a couple of swf but occy taught me to block and distract and she stopped quickly
gypy is fast asleep shes had a big day and i think she and i have learnt alot she sure has along way to go but i confident we will make it now!
