Paris Update

We continue to work with Paris. She has the choice to bark or come sit quietly for a treat whenever we have any type of "change" in the environment. This can be someone coming or going, someone getting out of a crate, me moving from room to room. We also have been working hard on "Settle" so Paris now sits quietly upon hearing that term.
Her behavior change has been incredible and she barks a fraction as often and for no where near as long.
She has shown that ignoring the bad and highlighting the good work, as well as offering her the option to do what I want or not.
I am very happy with her progress and look forward to a bark free girl.
Now to curtail the rest of the pack and keep Ketut from following in her footsteps.
