House manners are also coming along nicely. They stayed on their Placemats for an hour today with normal household activity (adults and toddler coming and going, the other dogs were milling around as well). We started working on the "back" command at the door to give a person entering or exiting room to move without being jumped on. The only hitch here is that Stella and Sparky are not nearly as excited about my husband as they are about their people. But we can get the foundation laid at least. I plan to have some super fun strangers stop by throughout the week to practice these door manners.
I'm looking forward to tomorrow. I think they will have a good time.
