Game plan for Melody... First off, Melody is very fearful, doesn't understand human or dog interaction and has zero training behind her. So, she comes built with some behaviors that will have to be reprogrammed.
We are gonna start with working her out of her shell with a lot of walks, confidence work and duration work. We won't wait to jump into some obedience training and getting her acclimated to a good social enviroment.
She will learn the following commands which are basic for all our dogs...
Place, structured heel, auto sit, sit stay, down stay, thresholds, recall and kennel commands.
We are going to have a heavy emphasis on controlling her enviroment and making all her experiences with training, people and other dogs positive. She is still a puppy and going through some key developmental stages, she'll learn how to coexist with the world around her and not be in the state of mind she has now. - 10 minutes ago
