Dog’s name: Shelby

Location: Tennessee

General obedience: She learns pretty quickly, but can be stubborn, sometimes doing what she is supposed to when offered a treat. She is quite intelligent and learned how to get out of her crate when she was a puppy. She does tend to pull on her leash whenever we go on a walk – something I’ve not been able to break her of.

Potty training: It was a bit tough to train her, even though it only took a week or so. Sometimes she would get so excited, that she would pee while she was still inside. However, this stopped happening after a year or so. I used the “normal” ways of training: crating when unsupervised, punishing ONLY if I caught her doing her thing in the house, and praising her when she successfully did her thing outside.
