Her Down at the left side is good. She likes to lay on your feet which I have been tolerating a little bit because Down was such a struggle for her. She is still having a very hard time with Down from the front because she wants very badly to be at your feet, so she often doesn't lay down where she is supposed to be but instead wiggles and baby crawls to your feet. It is very difficult to keep a straight face when she does this but I do and I take her back to where she is supposed to lay down and ask her to try again.
She spent 2.5 hours on her Placemat today with only one mistake when all the other dogs ran to the door to greet someone coming home. The rest of the time she was happy to stay put. She still needs to be guided onto her mat but soon she will be walking on by herself.
Tomorrow the pups get the morning off but it is back to work in the afternoon and we will work hard on her Implied Stay with the Down and on her laying down where she is supposed to, not on your feet.
No blog post on Sundays so come back to read on Monday.
