Hello, So I am new here and I would like to introduce all of my kids. They are all unique and special. My first kid and oldest is Macoa. Macoa is a 7 almost 8 year old golden retriever. We have worked hard on training with her, but she lacks the drive. She also is very easily distracted even with high value treats. We have mastered several obedience commands. However, every command is a struggle. She shuts down when she is overwhelmed. She has had a rough life bouncing between homes and families until she landed with us this last year. She has anxiety meds and is extremely prone to hot spots and allergies. Hopefully we will be able to resolve her health problems and help her overcome them soon. The next kid in line is Rhaja! She is my original baby. I have had her since I rescued her from a shelter when she was just a puppy while I was still in college. They labeled her as a Mastiff mix and had her on the put down list. She is not a mastiff, however, rather a boxer mix. She is very lazy and sweet. We have never gone past the basic obedience with her. Though I am debating adding in some fun stuff just to keep her on point. She is my cuddle bug and is happiest just relaxing. Next is Guinevere! Vera is my star. She is a two year old Rottweiler. We have every service dog command down for basic obedience, PTSD, and balance brace. She is amazing at basic obedience. She is ready to start working on agility and hopefully Rally this coming up year. She loves to learn and is eager to obey. Her down side is that we are sometimes a bit nervous. She also is a loud chatterbox. She doesn't really growl but she does make low woof sounds and grumbly purrs when trying to show off. Her mother was the same way. There is no aggression, but sometimes I worry with the breed racism on peoples reactions. My other little girl just turned two. She is a field type Golden Retriever. She is really sweet and soft. we haven't gotten far past just obedience. She is still not reliable enough to go to much beyond what she already knows. Hopefully, she will do well in Rally this coming Spring and we can add more complicated stuff to her repertoire. Then I have a new girl I am working with named Ygeme, but as we just got her within the last couple weeks we haven't gotten much done and are still trying to find out her personality. She is a 7 month old Rottweiler. Sadly, I do not have a good picture of her yet. So that is my fur kids in a nut shell.
