Today, I am taking back leadership of the pack from my dog Hope with the help of my own dog whisperer, Anna. She's my vet's wife and can I just say that she rocks! I decided that even though Hope went through Puppy Kinder, she really needs better manners before Grace comes home so today is the first day of the rest of her life. We are working on not bombarding people when they come over by licking and jumping on them as well as walking behind me instead of in front of me. Hope and I learned quite a bit but we both realized that it's going to take time and patience to fix two years of letting Hope be the leader of the pack. So, wish us both good luck and patience with each other. I have to say though, she's one smart doggie.
