Izzy came out for a lovely walk in the park yesterday. She started with meeting and walking with Skip (Trixie) and the intermingled well and she exchanged a little muzzle lick and look very relaxed to be in another dog's presence. Izzy was initially wary of human contact and in the 1st 10 mins of the walk she seems to seek to hide her self under bushes and visibly flinched like a an electric shock was being delivered with any attempt to gently touch.

Within 20 minutes I was able to lift Izzy up and cuddle her and kiss her cheeks and she relaxed considerabily ready for our walk to the park.

Around the roads she seemed alert but resigned to cars passing and people with their dogs around. I picked up a small sharp stone which was on the path to place it in amongst other stones soon after, and she became very concerned as it I had picked up a weapon. I thought to myself surely not, and continued to walk with it hidden in my closed hand and she began circling around in an attempt to shield herself for any possible onslaught and as I placed the stone back amongst its companions on a house pathway she gradually relaxed back down.

In the park I took 3 videos the first I was exploring any potential 'connectiveness'. This si something we have to test and promote with any nervous dogs and encourage to return to handler just in case handlers fall; breaking of lead or failure of clipped contact. I was pleasantly surprised that Izzy heard my call and how easily she return into my sphere of touch.

The 2nd video I tried to capture a further development whereby she had the confidence to approach me and place her paws on my knee to achieve comfort and positive exchange of affections. You can see how relaxed she is becoming after only 30 mins walk so far

Finally I had to suddenly seize the moment after Izzy showed spontaneity as she frolicked and ran and 'let her fur down' in the joy of the walk. She was then distracted as Dougie rushed over and noisily met Izzy which she was cool about.

I met sweet little Izzy last Saturday and took her for a lunchtime walk.


She was initially quite nervous, tail pointing downward, but did not seem scared of me or people in general, just of sudden movements. She did flinch when I lifted my arm to adjust my rucksack, but relaxed again quickly.
Little girl lost

When I crouched down to adjust my laces she came right up onto my knee, checking what I was doing - and if perhaps there was a treat forthcoming ;-)

On the walk we met a couple of lovely JRT, which Izzy was interested in and happy to mingle with. She also approach their friendly lady owner for a sniff and a cuddle, so clearly not afraid of dogs or people.
Throughout the walk the tail came up and she trotted along happily, JRT style, but once in a while she got nervous again and hid behind me.

A horse and rider confounded her temporarily, but once they had passed, she turned around to look at them curiously.

As the sun came out we took a break on a park bench. I invited her to jump up to join me, but it was a little too high for her, so I lifted her up carefully, which she didn't object to. She then sat calmly next to me, surveying the surroundings.


She seemed much more upbeat and happy about the world when we got back.
Surely with a little kindness and tlc she will lose the nervousness and the Jack Russell in her will come out and bring joy and fun to a lucky family. Just look at this adorable girl:
Is that a little smile?
