My dog, Lexi, is part border collie and part golden retriever. When I adopted her from the Humane Society, she was 1 year old. I had hoped for the collie brains and the retriever disposition, but, of course, got the opposite, so I decided training was a must!

She was doing well — not as well as I thought she’d do, but she was improving daily and I knew consistency was critical. So when I decided to visit my family for 10 days during the holidays, I was dreading the training after such a long break.
