Sadie just discovered the other couch in our family room. She often jumps up and lays there. She looks a little miffed if you sit on her couch. This is Sadie staring me down while I sit in her favorite spot. 🙂
I officially HATE training treat bags! The trainer told us we HAD to use one in class. So, I bought one. My dog is way too cleaver for this bag! We are supposed to train with the bag and clicker. So, I had it on my pocket today, with the clicker, while we went on our walk. Sadie used to be the best walker… now, she is constantly jumping up at the treat bag. I can’t walk two steps without her jumping up on my hip. Our afternoon walk was VERY short. I tried again in the evening, trying to click and treat for nice walking. Nope. It was a disaster. I was getting so frustrated I turned around and went home after only 3 houses. I wanted to scream, but I understand that Sadie is confused. She smells treats, knows they are in the bag. She thinks it’s all a game.
Look at this face! This is what she looked like when we got back into the house and I was at the end of my leash! 🙂
I took a deep breath and took her into the back yard to play fetch to burn off her energy… and calm me down.
I am only using the treat bag in class. No more home use. My old system was much more effective.
And, I’m really questioning the clicker.
Banging head against wall.
I’ll leave you with a few shots I captured of Sadie during a feisty barking play session.
This is how I felt dragging Sadie home from our failed walk! 🙂
