Limpet is turning out to be a really good learner. She walks beautifully on-leash now, will sit, lie down, stay, leave it (restrain herself from eating a treat or similar enticement placed on the floor) and come. We’re now trying to train her to ring a bell when she wants out.
We’ve been watching lots of Dog Whisperer episodes on DVD. The kids really enjoy these, and they are learning a lot about dog psychology, behaviour and training. Imagine my surprise to discover that Limpet knows how to roll over. I had no idea the girls had taught her, or that the dog had learned so readily just from them!
