Labrador Retriever / Rhodesian Ridgeback

We adopted Kona as an eight week old puppy. She is our second dog and I thought raising another puppy would allow me to avoid major behavioral problems with her in the future. Kona had other plans for me. Even at ten weeks old, she barked at strangers. I wanted a dog that I could take anywhere, but Kona shook when I took her just out in the yard.Because she was too afraid of the activity on the streets, I took her into the foothills. Now, she's my trail running partner and we're becoming a team. She has come a long way, but she still has a long way to go. I'm slowly learning how to help her get there. And as we work to make the world less scary, we take time to relax on our trails.

Kona is such a pretty girl! What a good human parent you are by being so wonderfully patient with her & her issues! If only every owner could be like that! Continue to grow & be brave little Kona-the world will soon not be so scary!

I love your mix Kona - you are a very pretty girl indeed!!!! My rabbit Cuddles gets very scared too - we're working on it and he's becoming more and more confident - just keep trying!! Have fun working together - she really is a gem!!!

Kudos on accepting a challenge in hopes of making a young dog's life easier. Kona's really beautiful, and hopefully someday her training will let other people appreciate how great she is too.
