Onion now Onya

Onya continues to settle in. She now knows to potty outside on a schedule. She is very smart and I easily taught her all her basic commands. We continue to work on these commands with distractions. She wants to play with and herd the cats, lol, but can be called off, but if she gets too excited, gets a time out in her crate or a stay in her place. Strangers, especially men is her biggest challenge. She is wary, fearful and avoidant. She views these situations as potential threats to herself and now to me.  I have now hired a professional trainer to work with us at a more experienced level to reduce her anxiety and build her confidence and calm in these situations.
