I can see what Steve was talking about when he said I need to work on reinforcing the basics with Ky. Funny what we can't see right in front of our eyes.

I was working with Ky today on the very basics, she's excellent at obedience but while working with her I noticed that instead of doing what I ask when I ask, she's taking a bit more time to mull it over first. That's so unlike her.

Steve said he wants me to work with her daily for a couple of reasons.
1- Because Bentley gets training everyday & Ky deserves one on one time too.
2- Because she's an Akita and they're known for being stubborn so I have to constantly train with her to keep her decision making to a minimum.

I agreed to do anything he suggested while secretly thinking that she really doesn't need to train daily, she's such a good dog. I admit he saw what I couldn't see. I've been so focused on training Bentley since August that I've been letting Ky get away with things that she would never have gotten away with before Bentley came.

When I train the basic sets such as.. down-sit-stand repeat, she gives me a look like I must be joking. I have been training her when Bentley isn't around though, I don't want her to feel embarrassed in front of him. (i know, I know)
Yep, she needs a refresher course. The boot camp continues.

Sounds like Ky is in for a little tough love from the boss!

She's soon to be in for some tough love from Bentley too, she's only got 32 lbs on him now and he's not done growing LOL

Thanks for sharing! I absolutely love that your neighbor who was so scared of your golden puppy less than 3 months ago now looks at your Akita and says "Poor baby," because she has to sit and be calm. I can't wait to hear that your neighbors have welcomed a dog into their own home. After falling in love with Ky and Bentley, I feel like it's only a matter of time!

Julie, Jersey and Oz
