She isn't quite as flashy as her sister, but she sure does look good.

You're her favorite 'Peez' dispenser! ...so cute...she's doing great!

I like dispensing the 'Peez'! :-) Riley is a cutie, but your right, Britt. There is something a little more flashy about Reagan. Just a plain, brown wrapper, but she puts a lot of personality in her work and she is a better mover.

Riley reminds me so much of my girl, DeeDee. We're also working on heeling at this point, with less treats as rewards. One question: I noticed Riley does a great job keeping her hind end at your side when you do left turns. DeeDee tends to just stand there and let me walk through her, whereupon she'll fall back in stride with me. How did you teach Riley to move his hind end around, or did she just pick it up after being (gently) walked into enough times? Thanks!

Hi Brooke,

This is how I taught the girls to move their rear ends into heal position. It worked beautifully!
