Perhaps SNEAKING may not have been the proper word to use, but you all get the idea. Whether she snuck up, skipped up, ran up or crawled up.. regardless, she approached without either of seeing her coming and triggered a reaction. Like I said.. had I expected her approach, Id have taken better control.
The trainer realized that we were having some problems and came over to speak to us, as soon as she went to acknowledge Jaida
During the walk around the room, Jaida was on a very short and tight lead. She had to be, to keep her from lunging forward. There was a required 5 foot distance between each owner and dog, unfortunately the other dogs were not on a short leash and fell back and forward enough that Jaida could get close enough to nip at them. Now.. Im not passing blame on this too, but IF I could have gotten Jaida any closer/tighter to me, Id have been carrying her in my arms around the room.
I do not see how my husbands deployment could/would make working with Jaida any harder than if he were here. Sure.. Id have his support and someone to take the dogs on a nightly run, but other than that, I do everything else for and with the dogs on my own. Taking Jaida in knowing she had hyperactivity and vocal problems were not reason enough for us to NOT take her. These are 'relatively' simple problems we can work on. This 'biting' problem was one we couldnt forsee, or were told about before getting her.

Nevermind. I need to deal with some issues Im having with Jaida, that is the reason Im here, to seek the help I need.. if you want to scrutinize every single word, fine.. but I am finished explaining myself. If you have a question.. ASK, stop assuming.
