Smart Girl

I know I’ve shared a video similar to this before, but I just wanted to show everyone again how proud I am of my smart girl!  I wish I had snow pictures or even ice pictures to share but we didn’t get any.  We were supposed to get snow/ice early this morning (around 4 AM) but it just didn’t happen.

Riley’s release word is “Okay,” so I try to trip her up with other words that sound like “okay.”  You can see it almost worked one time in the video but she thought about it again before she got up to eat.  Like my “elevated feeder” AKA dryer door??  🙂

  5. Smart Riley! I love teasing my dog with different release words around dinner time. It drives her nuts. She just sits there on her mat, quivering. It is a great way to train impulse control, something very important for dogs to learn. It looks like Riley can handle it no problem!

Riley loves hearing from her friends!
