|Charlie didn't make much of an effort to get into the spirit..|
I used Rescue Remedy again when someone came to work on the house later that week. There was some initial barking but Charlie calmed down and sat ignored the man after a few minutes. I'm thinking it needs a while to set in, the second time I used it I only had about 15 minutes before the "scary" man arrived.
I think I'm going to plan a trip to our "favorite" pet store and give him a half dose to see if he can relax in public. They have come to know us well at this store and when they're not busy will work with us just walking by him or talking to me without acknowledging him.
Other than discovering Rescue Remedy we have just been enjoying the fall weather! I'm still going everywhere I can and accept every invitation to neighbor's houses for socialization. I really like RR but I feel that its a band-aid and temporary crutch... training and patience will hopefully unlock Charlie!
|Gettin the leafs!!!!|
The leaves are really dropping off the trees and AHH it snowed a little in Ithaca this week! Charlie is getting really fluffy, but those ears are still undecided on their position :)
