So Holly has become a bit naughty and not wanting to come when called she will not run just rolls over if I go get her but I figured out her currency as I like to call it the word treat is all it takes to get that girl flying in. Zoe will come in when called without the word but she also responds more quickly to the word.
And yes my yard needs some TLC lol..
Yeah both my Chi's are food motivated to doing things.I have to take one treat and for each per day and make it into smaller pieces if not they would end up with a diet of treats lol.. Holly was not treat motivated when she was younger though.
Oh sorry to get all the pups in a treat mode. I just really never had a dog that the word would work on to come to me. LS front yard is really small compared to the back we have a little over 1 1/2 acre lot here. Some woods in back but cleared out path area to a little creek. I would love to fence the back in but it is not in our budget to do that yet.
