This little ball of energy is Oscar! He came back through our Continuing Education program to stay with Tracy over the weekend. She is reminding Oscar of his doorway manners that he worked so hard on when he was here for Training Camp! He must SIT and wait to be released before going outside.
"I'm really taking my time with this exercise to over exaggerate this rule. He knows what to do, but still tries to ignore me and waits to be told. Instead of getting frustrated, I simply stand there and ignore Oscar until he calms down enough to realize what I'm waiting for. The quicker he SITS, the quicker he gets to go out. I'm on to you Mr. Cutie Pie! And I got all day! Ah! There is the behavior I'm looking for! Now let's go!" -Tracy Mandel
