We are seeing progress (4th complete day with us). My wife and kids will get Roxy out of the crate and get her outside when arriving from work while I stay in the vam. So she sees them and can't ignore their presence. I pop in 5 minutes later and she's quite calm.

Little background - Roxy spent 12-14 hours crated in the previous owner household (he's a paramedic). So of course, she'd have tons of energy to blow when he arrived from work (working different hours/days - so no real routine/structure). Getting into things, overly excited was a daily thing with her. Now with us, she's crated 4-5 hours less and we have more time to spend with her. Like this morning, I woke up my daughter and she hop in the bed for a nice little kiss on the cheek as oppose to getting excited and playfull like the previous days. As mentioned in the other posts. OB training is a must to get the best benefits and rewards for both the dog and family.

She did scare me yesterday. My wife ran outside to the BBQ in thinking something was burning too much he Roxy followed her unleashed. Needless to say, she wanted to play with me, but I couldn't get within 2 feet from her (my fenced swings doors we're open give her access to the "outside world". Now I didn't want to shout (useless at this point), so I stood around in the backyard letting her run around in the front lawn and what not. Reason I didn't run after her when she left the backyard is this. If I run, there's no way I'll catch her, worst she'll still think I'm playing thus maybe make her run down the street. So after a good 2-minutes she came back to me and I pulled a old branch to play Tug-of-War with her (she likes it - but not us). Playing ToW made me within reach of her collar and grabbed her! Phewww! Was I happy to see that she was more interested in playing with me then going about the streets...
