Or Willow’s Shadow
~not so long ago
She is smart, biddable, …and more
One aspect about her that is wonderful is that she is SO smart, she understands quickly what I will and will not tolerate. She likes rules and wants to do what I want, she is biddable and has a good attitude about it all. I need to be on top of her more than I was with Willow, they are very different, however she has a cute personality and as I have said, she will be an amazing adult dog, I can tell. I love to watch her figure things out on her own, she is probably the most intelligent dog I have ever had. We love her!
Kisses are better than bites
She is a delight And by the way, we have not had ANY housetraining accidents. Granted, I watch her continuously and know her signals, but she has always seem to understand to do her business outside. When I have her in the PD, she will pull me toward our officers outside door and I follow her, and she goes outside and does it right away. Again, super smart. It also helps of course to have Willow and Daisy show her the ropes!
We cannot thank Jan enough for all she does with her Weimaraners. Juniper is her second OwyheeStar — and we know she was more of a challenge than the infamous Willow. Regardless, we have confidence in Jan’s ability to bring home another wheelbarrow filled with ribbons.
We love what Jan says about Juniper wanting to please. This attitude (the desire to want to please) is something each Weim family must achieve. Without it, nothing grand can happen. With that type of relationship, you are only limited by yourself. Often, the smartest and those with the most potential are also the most challenging. It is vital to make clear the rules and to stick to the criteria. All this has to be framed with an upbeat and positive tempo. We thank Jan for what she has done with Juniper and for the future possibilities.
