  6. Awe! She's so cute! That's a really sweet expression! :D

  7. You look so little all the way down there, Nola!

    I thought more about your post concerning Roxie's snaps from the closed crate. I have learned a lot about "threshold distance" with Shyla. Is there a distance that Nola can walk across the front of the crate without Roxie doing that? E.g., if Nola is 10 yards away and then walks across Roxie's view from the crate, does Roxie not snarl/snap? If there is a distance where Roxie looks completely relaxed about Nola walking in front of the crate, then you've found Roxie's threshold distance. Based on what I've learned with Shyla, you want to do lots of repeats of Nola walking across Roxie's view outside the threshold distance. You also want someone next to the crate to be slipping Roxie treats every time Nola goes by without Roxie reacting.

    This is a slow process so you don't want to start getting closer to the crate until you have a lot of repeats with no reaction from Roxie (probably 3 or more days of practice). After setting that foundation, then you can try taking Nola across Roxie's view a foot closer to the crate. After you start trying to move the threshold closer, you want to mix up your repeats so that some are outside the original threshold and some are inside it. Making sense? It can be a very slow process but this is essentially how we helped Shyla get over many of her fears.

    I'd still say, though, that a check-up by a behaviorist would be a great idea to make sure that this isn't just the first sign of other reactiveness to come in the future.

    Sorry to go on and on.
