    That's just distractions and though it doesn't feel like it now if you hang in there she'll get bored with some of the things and you'll be able to start getting her to pay more attention to you. At least she is quite a small dog, by the time Gus got bored of chasing every scary leaf weighed half as much as me and had given me a tennis elbow and a catalogue of other injuries and basically couldn't be walked on leash.

    I've just bought a head collar for her... hoping this will help!

    How long did it take for Gus to settle?

    Yeah, I have a friend with a white GSD and he makes my friends front room look like the floor of a very lazy barbers shop! I think she's too small for any GSD or BC in her though :/

    I've ordered a clicker from Amazon, waiting for it to arrive to give it a try... I'm pretty sure it's just Chewie though lol... We'll see!

    We have a set game we play that starts with me saying 'Gonna get the puppy!' and she grabs Mr Giraffe and we play tag with it. It ends with me saying 'Enough' and she settles back down. She is very attached to me so she never wants to be too far away. :X3:

    About a year and a half :oops:
    But he is a border collie/labrador and they do seem like some of them have difficulty with lead training at times.
