Lucille the Dog is a bit of a free spirit.
I’ve always been resistant to the kind of training done by many dog people.
My thought has always been she (Irish Setter and Poodle mix) has a given character that I need to respect.
She loves people, she loves to run, she loves to chase in the woods or the yard.
Around people she is enthusiastic, yet understanding. If you are comfortable with her, she is comfortable with you. If you are hesitant, she is respectful.
Part of her is wild, part of her is a domestic homemaker.
