Zumi turns 6 months old pretty soon and weighs 26lbs now and maybe 17in tall? Still not sure what height she is going to end up as but I'm now hoping she gets another growth spurt that she gets closer to 19 rather than 18 considering she's not going to stay under 17.5!
I've been happy with our continued training in teaching her to stress UP instead of shutting down. Not that she's had any opportunity to shut down, but if she's failing a little bit with a concept more than once I try to get her sassy with shoves and high hand touches and then resume training either at the same level or a tiny bit easier. I love that it's so easy to keep her in the game and coming back with greater intensity and confidence to try again. Vito responds pretty similarly to training if I just make fun of him for being wrong, but depending on the situation Lance can actually need more hand holding.
I skipped on continuing scent article work so she's still only had the 2 unsuccessful lessons. Maybe this week I will resume, still with plan B in mind. I have never been motivated to teach scent articles!
