I am very impressed with this puppy. She is smart, funny, cute, and a total workaholic already.
I'm totally smitten <3
So far, she's doing well with the other dogs. She and Moss are best buddies, and Scully and Cedar pretty much just ignore her.
Moss has really stepped it up and is being the best babysitter ever. He is probably just happy to have another dog around that wants to play constantly! He is so gentle with her... they roughhouse, but he's always careful not to hurt her. It's very cute.
Here's a video showing what Ember and I have been working on since she came home:
So far, these are the things she can do/stuff we're working on:
Nose touch to palm
Nose touch to target
Spin (turn to the right)
Twirl (turn to the left)
Paw touch to target
Tip the wobbly/teeter board
Follow my hand/finger when I walk in a figure 8, on both right and left
Front cross foundation
Rear cross foundation
Blind cross foundation

Restrained sit (impulse control)
Restrained down (impulse control)
I'm excited to see what her future holds :)
