Gracie learns quickly, too. A couple of 15 minute sessions with her and she's got it!
The only thing we're having trouble with is teaching her to ring a desk bell that we got...Someone here posted a video of their pup ringing one, and I thought it was so cute. I wanted to keep it on the floor by the door and teach Gracie to slap it when she wanted to go out, but she is absolutely TERRIFIED of the bell noise!
Aw! What a cute picture! She's very smart. Good job with the training.
Maybe you could teach her a "back" command. I do this with Lily. I say "back" and she starts stepping backwards. Then I say "stop".
If she's sitting when I say the command she hops back, and after each hop she goes back into a sitting position. Lol! Silly girl.
