Social and Behavioral Progress

Anu used to be super shy and very anxious in public and/or social scenarios. She would pull away from the vet and vet assistants, pee on them, and cry a lot. Meeting other people and dogs really stressed her out.

Today was our best vet visit ever. She was well behaved and happy to see the staff. Anu did not cry when they took her back for tests. When the vet returned with her she said she is perfect…perfectly healthy, perfectly well behaved in public, socializing quite well. (And she did not pee on them.)

Through consistency in bringing her in public and also training and her classes, she is now just a wee bit shy still, but will greet familiar people in public and then warms up to unfamiliars when given a couple of minutes to get comfortable. Anu loves the vet and other dogs and puppies (no matter how big or small).
She begs to ride in the car and go places. She has fun in her puppy classes; when she first started she hid under my chair or sat on my lap for 3 weeks, now she sniffs around for a few minutes and has even played with other pups the last couple of times. She is now in the intermediate level class and is doing quite well. Is learning to “heel,” has improved with “coming when called”, and “stay”.

She loves the PetSmart classes and our PetSmart trainer, btw. 🙂

She still gets very protective and nervous when known or unknown visitors come to the house. So, we will continue to work on that. She has never attacked it tried to bite anyone, just barks a lot and stands or lays between the visitor and myself.

Anu was under 4 pounds at 8 weeks old. She is now 19.8 pounds. And in great condition and health.

This is how happy she was at the vet today:

V-E-T

Anu was so good at the vet the last couple of visits. And seemed actually happy to be there. She now greets the girls at the reception desk and jumps right up onto the scale. She sat very patiently for the vet once we got into the exam room.

Anu eventually got bored waiting for the vet to come in:

Then we took a puppy “selfie”:
