Leia, my baby girl
« on: July 11, 2018, 03:50:11 AM »




 Here is my baby girl Leia, she is 11 months old and I love her to death. She runs up to me all the time and bows for head scratches, but she wonít step up. I have tried enticing her with treats and she would just reach out for them.  The only time she will is when itís time for bed and I take her to bed to sleep. What else can I do? I really want to have a strong connection with her, but I want to respect her space. I have had her since October 2017.

She's gorgeous, it sounds like you already have a great bond with her.

To try to get her to step up, hold a treat in one hand a bit of a distance and hold your other hand close to her tummy so she has to step onto your hard to get the treat. Also hold your finger close to her tummy just to get her used to the feeling.

If she's a bit scared of your hand there get a branch/stick to see if she will step up on to that instead. Its just something they aren't used to doing naturally.

Thank you so much, I will definitely try this out today! My goal is to have her comfortable around me because I want her to be as happy as possible!
