Yesterday Nami decided she would take up the notion to chase Deer for the first time ever. Today we worked on that impulse. They're not as interesting anymore now that they're not chaseable.

I'm going to try something a little different. I always talk about how skittish Nami can be around various environmentals, but I never show it. So here's a shot. So many people out there want a malinois or dutch shepherd because of how awesome they are at police work, or various dog sports like IPO, Dock Diving, and trick competitions. Most of what you see on Instagram, Facebook, and various other social media platforms are confident dogs that are excellent ambassadors for the two different breeds. What you never see are the terrified spazoids that'll flip out at the rustling of a chip bag or some other random environmental. Nami falls into the later category, only I never post videos about it. Usually I'd have her on leash so that I could work her through this better, but I wanted you to see what it's like when I delay training and just try to approach it without any effort. I'll probably get flack for "torturing" my dog, but these 2 working breeds are fast becoming a popular breed among people who want pet dogs. She is everything you DON'T want in a malinois or dutch shepherd and I want people to see that they don't come out of the womb ready to defend you. It takes time and effort. If you slack on training and exposing them to environmentals at an early age, you could very well end up with a dog like her. After this clip we spent the next 10-15 minutes just working around the gigantic wind chimes until she ignored them.

Can you spot the Grimm on this massive tree at Washaway Beach? The ocean is reclaiming 127ft of shore every year from this beach. People have gotten the hint now, but several years ago you could literally watch people's houses fall into the ocean. Several city blocks worth of this community are just gone. The streets are still present on maps, but when you're driving down them they just end suddenly and turn into a cliff to the beach. Mother nature doesn't mess around.
