Grounding in a different location
Today the goal was to have your dog ground in different location- I know we’ve used this location before but for the last few days we’ve been grounding on the bed.
Just as an update but Scout has no problem with coming up on the bed, bench, chair, etc He will position himself to get ready to lie down- but actually lying down means a little luring needs to be done. I feel he knows my hand will be on top of him- Just naturally occurring for me. And he likes to be in total control. So he is weary of lying down with someone directly over him. But he does lie on my legs and applies pressure wonderfully. As you can see in the photo below.
Where we are
All in all I believe we are just where we should be in our training. Tomorrow continues more training on this and then if I am not mistaken we move on from there.
I would also like to mention today in our training we had added distractions from all sides, with work going on in the yard behind us. Justice running around with her ball wanting someone to throw it. Liberty and Freedom wanting to get into the act as well. And lots of surrounding noises and happening about the area!
Until tomorrow have a happy and healthy tail waggin’ day.
