- Shana sit on the dog in room (modified) with Bailey out. She got through the whlle thing without barking. So she got six out 6 food rewards (spaced five minutes apart). 30 minutes
- One hour walk (20 minutes relaxation), (20 minutes easy---being rewarded after four times of holding back from putting pressure on the leash), and 20 minutes sits and downs out of motion. Brought Bailey along. Before this, I had played ball games with Boris and Shana so she would not be as wound up. She had an infection in her nail bed so haven't done sny ling walks in awhile. She saw Nellie where she was interested and a little wound. We slso saw two smsll d9gs ysppung on a porch at us during the sit and down portion. Kept it together, but did not execute commands as wanted for a few minutes after. Then on going to Spruce, she started her excited whining, where I saw a cat peeking at us from a snow bank.
- Quiet in crate while Bailey and Boris playing ball for 15 minutes. Shana struggled more with this. But we finally got to a place where she had settled down.
