She has held Placemat for me for about 30 minutes so far and we are working on building on that time. She LOVES praise and solicits it often so she is easy and gratifying to work with. She is also enterprising and has a very golden sense of humor so trouble finds her often. This will ease up as she matures a little and until then she is very charming even if she likes to pilfer a roll of paper towels and run around with it (none were eaten, she just enjoyed running around with her prize which my kids thought was HILARIOUS).
Things we are still working on are jumping on people and her self restraint with picking up things she shouldn't. It's difficult because strangers praise her for jumping up all the time. She looks like a stuffed animal and people love her immediately but they aren't teaching her great habits by petting her when she jumps up. So she has gotten a few corrections for that behavior still.
Tomorrow we are working with more distractions and also trying to get her time up on Placemat. For now she is going from dog to dog in the living room seeing who she can tease into playing with her.
