|This is her spot. My chair is at this end.|
|I was very proud that she held her stay as I set them down.|
|Then, she actually wimpered at me because I guess she thought she was being terribly mistreated.|
|She finally let out a huff and relaxed.|
|And eventually just went to sleep, but not before staring at it for a solid 15 minutes!|
I started off sitting in my chair right next to her giving her encouragement to do well. Then, I moved around in the kitchen to see if she would still obey (with Pat in his chair to step in if need be). I then left the room. Pat said she watched me leave, looked at the food, then looked at him and thought better of it! But, at least she didn't make a move for it. Of course, she always does things right when I'm having a specific training session for her, it's times like last night when she's just hanging out with the family that she has problems with things. That's why during her "training time" today, I left her off leash and no cape on. I was proud that I never had to grab her to keep her from moving towards it. We'll keep working making the task harder and harder!
