We took Eva up to Genting Highlands this weekend to have a breath of fresh and cool air :)
You could call this weekend a "training challenge".
We have been trying to get her to sit everytime a call or motorcycle passed by and give her a treat everytime she sit-stayed. However, it seems like she's not so interested in food when something is more interesting, and she's not so interested in toys either. So what exactly will keep her attention from the interesting objects?
Sometimes she doesn't do much about them, but other times, she can go crazy!
We've been thinking of getting her a harness so that the pulling doesn't damage her throat, but I heard that harnesses let them pull even more.
Does anybody use a Gentle Leader Harness and comments on it?
Eva was a little social butterfly too. Rosie's little cousins came to see her, and as you know, kids who don't own dogs behave differently from kids who do :) So yesterday, Eva learnt not to shy away from sudden actions and behave herself, not to jump on others, etc.
Today, we took her up to the mountains (a 4km walk up and another 4km walk down) to go to a little waterfall and this time, meet up with middle-aged, old people :)

When meeting an old 7 year old girl, Eva went up to her boldly and made the first move, sniffing. However, the little dog was not so social and so shyed away. Lucky for her, Eva learnt from her Grandma Laura that disturbing oldies is never a good thing to do, so she didn't keep sniffing her but kept her distance.

While walking, I noticed Eva's cute little ears and just had to take a video!
I'm sure many of you sheltie owners will see this everyday, but it's just too cute!
