Last week we shared about Libbie’s (Liberty Belle) trip home on the airplane, as well as her extraordinary initial adjustment. It was nothing short of phenomenal, but a lot had to do with how she began her journey. She learned to settle in the carryon bag–yes, I did work with her before she left OwyheeStar. Regardless, there is something to be said about the pup that settles–they can learn nearly anything. The carryon bag is like an extreme crate-training session–only you must succeed to be able to fly with them in the bag. Here are some photos of Libbie on her day of travel.
Finally, a calm follow through makes a lot of difference. So, there were two huge factors contributing to the excellent start. 1. There is the settling in the carryon bag. 2. There is the human factor where they stayed calm and followed through. Honestly, it is not all that easy, but it is effective. All the human emotion and excitement can be the unraveling the transition. (OMG)
Day One with Libbie
We got up this morning and started the daily routine. I took off work to help her transition to her work days with Scott, and get familiar with how it’s all going to work. As I’m typing this, she is sleeping and figuring it out.She has really done phenomenally so far with everything, I, we are truly amazed at her learning things and remembering them. It’s almost scary as to how smart she is, are we going to be able to keep up with her staying interested and busy learning more 🙂 ?!What an incredible gift you have given us! We are more grateful than you can possibly know! As I mentioned earlier, our family is complete again, and we owe it all to you. Thank you!!!!
Thank you for all of the suggestions! I’m definitely going to check out the AKC Good Citizen Title program, sounds fun and will help me keep Libbie learning and interested and obedient :)! Also, I’m going to start the standing process as well, what a great idea, makes total sense!
