I don't often catch the girls calmly posing….
I thought I would share.
They're getting to be such big girls.
We made great progress this week, for however long it lasts.
They're no longer terrified of the car. If I sit in the back (offering treats) they'll jump up, put they're front paws on the back, and stick their little heads in to get the nibbles.
It only took 4 days to get to that point.
Next week, I'll actually put them IN the car.
That's not going to happen for a few months.
I can get one to sit, but when I try to get the other to sit, the first one jumps up and tries to get the food. It's like having a jack-in-the-box on either side. They usually jump up and down, getting all four paws off the ground, as soon as I pick the bowls up and keep doing it until I out the filled bowls back down.
I'm still feeding them outside. When I move it inside we'll start again – new feeding area; new rules.
Of course, rather than sitting next to me they pivot around so they can face my pocket where the treats are kept. They don't get treats all the time, but they know where they are.
I tried to introduce them to 'down'. They have no problem going down. It's just that, once they're there, they role over and want a belly rub. And I don't know how to get them up again. I don't know how to teach them to go into a 'sit' from a 'down'. And as soon as one is down, the other runs over to play.
We have a lot of fun, we make a little progress and we're in no hurry.
