A break

No training today. I had errands to run.

In yesterday's training, Sam tried a new approach. I wanted him to down, and he was balking. I put my hand with the treats down on the ground, palm down, so the treats were under my fingers. Sam kept sniffing at my hand, trying to get around the fingers somehow so he could get the treat. Finally, he reached out with his paw and raked at my hand to move it out of the way, hoping that would leave the treat behind.

Son, it'd be much easier if you'd just down when I tell you to.

Who wants to do things the easy way? That's less fun. ;)

Well, his way worked. I was laughing so hard I failed to protect the treat, and he got it.
