Grandma is Here!

Grandma is here.  I am not sure what a Grandma is but I think she is great.  Probably the smartest human I  have ever trained!

She notices everything and keeps her eyes on me always.  Yesterday morning, I had her feeding me cheese on her plate in about 2 minutes.  This is the hardest trick I know how to teach.  Daddy has never learned it and always yells, “No Nixon” whenever I try to teach him it.  The Mommy gets it sometimes but is still not reliable if there are any distractions.

Cookie is not a good human trainer but I think she will learn a lot from working with Grandma.  Cookie is very loud and can ask for too many things at once.  I find that steady eye contact is more effective than barking at them.  When the human does the trick, you also have to shower them with praise so they know they did good.  They really enjoy hugs, gentle kisses, and most like full body contact so leaning on them is important.

    Oh Nixon…what a wonderful Grandma trainer you are!
    Tucker had his grandma trained really well too….to the point where he was gaining weight because we visited her every weekend.
    Keep up the good work.

    Nixon you are SO wise. You’re right, the eye contact is key. Grandma knows.

    Have fun!
