|This is the long leash - harness for Bella to run on in our yard|
The really big improvement was when Bella saw the black and white cat. There is a neighborhood black and white cat that Bella usually goes ballistic barking and wanting to chase after when she sees it. It all started when she was a puppy and we wanted to chase the cat out of the yard because my friends 2 toddler children would not stop trying to pet it. So that night long ago, we put Bella and Butterscotch out on their long leashes and they barked at the cat so it ran out of the yard. Since then, Bella sees the cat and wants to go chase it. Talk about quick learning!
|Butter gets his rewards for being calm too|
There was still a little barking at dinner time, but not as much as the day before. Improvement is coming every day.
