Last weekend, my dad and Andrew put an invisible dog fence in for Lucy. Thank you Dad for the help, it was a big project! She is on day 4 of training and has learned about the boundary flags, the beeping when she gets too close to the boundary, and the shock that happens if you keep going instead of turn around. It only took 2 or 3 times on the first day of introducing the shock (or static correction as they call it) before she started booking away from the beeping whenever she heard it. We felt terrible about the shock, but she didn't act like it hurt her, more a pinch or a startle. It will be so nice when, in a week or two, we can let her run around the yard to get her crazies out. When she isn't going to Daycare at Tails a Wagging, going on walks in the evenings, or being trained with her new fence, Lucy is usually soaking up sun rays in the living room.
Here's to new houses, sunny spring weather, and good friends!
