|Birth Day, Month and Year:
||8/26/07 -- Passed Canine Good Citizen Test!!! :)
Dakota is doing very well with her agility and rally training. When she calms herself down more, she will continue her therapy dog training.
Almost completed therapy dog training
|My pet peeves:
||Dakota has some fear-aggression and can lunge, bark, and snap at people and dogs on the street. She also is very clingy and has some separation anxiety issues.
||Figuring out how to pull everything in sight into her crate.
Sleeping and being a bum.
Barking out the window.
|My favorite hang out spot?
||Anywhere people are, usually in their laps!
On the kitchen floor near the window.
|My favorite grub:
||Dog food straight out of the bag! Also, cheese, peanut butter, liver, and Beggin' Strips.
|My favorite treat:
||Dakota likes porkhide chews and 3M dental treats. She also likes pita bread, cheese, meat, liver, Beggin' Strips, and peanut butter!
|My favorite tricks:
||Dakota responds very well to American Sign Language. I am now working on teaching her some tricks and training her in agility and flyball. She is improving her separation anxiety and her aggression towards Mocha is pretty much nonexistent, however she does still need to work on her fear-aggression and socialization skiils.
|What I love about my owner:
||Everything! Dakota loves ALL people (despite her fear-aggression, she really does love people and is a wonderful, sweet, and affectionate dog!).
||"For perhaps, if the truth were known, we're all a little blind, a little deaf, a little handicapped, a little lonely, a little less than perfect. And if we can learn to appreciate and utilize the dog's full potentials, we will, together, make it in this life on earth." -- Charlotte Schwartz, "Friend to Friend: Dogs That Help Mankind"
"Some of the most beautiful things in life can not be seen or heard. They must be felt... with the heart." -- Helen Keller
