Luna

~Here’s the Scoop


It’s been a while since I’ve given you an update so thought I’d share the latest with you. You know better than anyone pups can change so rapidly!
Luna (a.k.a Luna Tuna, Looney Tunes) is going on 5 months now and she’s really getting quite big. Others notice it more than I do but at our last vet visit on the 6th, she was 25 lbs. She’s almost as tall and long as her brother Frankie. 


She had her last vaccine that day and we made it through without any issue. I feel like a while new world opened up to us as I’ve kept her a bit isolated until she was fully vaccinated. Now we’re going to puppy play time and going on different more populated areas for our walks.

As you’ve seen by some of my comments in posts, I’ve been a bit challenged crate training Luna. Sometimes the best leads come from the most unusual places and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. In this case, my hair stylist who is big into dog rescue. She gave me the info of a private trainer right here in town. 


We had a 2 hour consult last week at my house while she observed Luna to understand what we’re dealing with as far as her crate and fear of unfamiliar people. By the end of the session, Luna was sleeping right by her side while I sat on the other side of the room. When she woke up, rather than looking for me she rolled on her back to get a nice belly rub. I was so proud of her!!


She determined Luna isn’t a rehab case (that was a real possibility given her HOD episode and trauma that could have left an imprint with her) and doesn’t have a crate issue because she goes right in. It’s the separation from me that’s the problem. We talked about a plan on how to address her separation anxiety, socialization and gaining more confidence. 
In the meantime, Luna is loving the social distancing and self isolating measures we’re taking as a family to do our part in limiting the virus while staying healthy. If she had her way, I think she’d quarantine me for life! 😂😂😂


I’m looking forward to starting our sessions in a few weeks. Luna was VERY receptive to the idea (it may have helped the trainer had real venison jerky during her visit). I have a really good feeling we’ve taken the right approach for her. I’ll keep you posted on our progress.
Take care, Kris
