Thanks. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who has run into these problems. I think part of the reason we are having some issues is that I have a habit of not being forceful and letting the dog get away with things sometimes. (My sister says that's why my nieces don't listen also ) I started last night being more forceful and not repeating commands. Last nights walk took quite a while. I have a feeling that this is going to take some time, but I am going to stick with it.

We were thinking it might be a good idea to try and get some one on one instruction with a trainer. Does that make sense? Since she is a combination of being very smart and very stubborn, I'm thinking this is going to take a lot of patience and work and working with a group, while it is good for socialization, might not be a good setting for training her.

Thanks again for all your advice.
