We continue to potty train with pretty good success! A couple of accidents, but I moved quick, caught her and got her outside. She's really good about going in the morning. She tends to get side tracked by Maddie and Giz, but I just say "Hayley, potty!" and she does her business! None of the dogs knew what to do this morning when they stepped onto a deck full of snow!! They just kind of tipped toed out! Hayley is an Alabama girl, so I'm sure this was the time she felt the cold of snow on her paws!
What I really like is how easy it was to train Hayley to sit. I always give my pups a treat when they come in from going potty. At first Hayley wanted nothing to do with the treats, but after a few days of seeing the other dogs get one, she tried it and liked it. Now she's young, so her manners aren't the greatest yet, so she would jump and climb all over Maddie and Giz to get the first treat. So literally, it took ONE day of telling and showing her how sit and she has it down pat! The bonus. . .she lets me hand the treat to her. She waits her turn, doesn't lunge for it, or jump up, she just takes it like the best little girl ever!!! LOVE it!!
Today the dogs all begrudgingly let me dress them up in their Halloween costumes AND do a little photo shoot! Nothing easy about that, but I did have some help and I did get some cute pictures!! Enjoy!!
