Ellie still gets distracted but now is a good time to start. It’s great obedience training. Find a safe place like a park with no traffic and not a lot of people or even a small neighborhood. Walk for a little while and if they stay close reward them. And of course if you start to feel uncomfortable like if another dog is near by or you think your dog won’t listen always keep a leash with you. After awhile your dog will get used to the routine and commands. Ellie still runs off to smell things but I don’t mind because she always stays close. And she knows if she comes back she’ll get a treat (:
Hey thanks that’s good to know!! I’ve noticed places that don’t get brushed as much like her face and behind her ears are a beige color!! Makes sense. Thanks for sharing (:
Wow thank you so much. Means a lot to hear that from a dog groomer. My next step in learning is trimming the hair around her paws and clipping her nails :D if anyone has videos that will help me it’d be very much appreciated.
*gets anon hate from the dog with a blog*
I just brush her twice a week. People always ask how she stays white? I really don’t know. It’s pretty hot this summer so we always keep the sprinklers on for her. But other than that we only give her a bath if she gets super dirty like jumps in a mud puddle. She’s only been to the groomers once and they did an amazing job but it’s so expensive. I almost thought about getting ads so I could afford it haha. But I’ve been watching YouTube tutorials and trying my best at keeping her coat healthy and fluffy lol
please do not be mean to dogs they are only trying to help
my family is moving to a smaller house soon with a big fenced in back yard for Ellie. And we might be getting another samoyed!! Cause she really needs someone to keep her company while I’m at work. Sooo excited!!!!
