The other day I received word from an anonymous instructor (who’s name MIGHT be similar to mine!) at GDB that I in fact did not ruin Reyna by putting booties on her. Phew……..! Sometimes it is REALLY nice to have instructors following the blog :) She was not aware of anything that prohibited puppy raisers from exposing pups in training to booties, but I am still not exactly sure about it. The trainer went on to tell me that no one at the SR campus has had to spend any significant time introducing booties to any pup in training (even the body sensitive ones). They all wiggle a bit or pull their paws away, but they just use lots of praise and food. Good too know! Reyna didn’t do any of that. She just laid there and let me put the boots on without a problem. She is such a good girl!
Just thought I would share the news that I don’t need to change my blog name from “Raising Reyna” to “Ruining Reyna!”
