While we were gone my landlord watched Jessie. They are really good friends of my sisters. They have a baby about to turn a year old. They said that Jessie was great, the husband Mike said that she was listening to him. They went down to the beach every day. She was really good on the leash for him also which is her biggest problem. But even since we got home I've noticed a change in her behavior on the leash. She is much calmer.
