9.17.12 The Down Stay

Louise:  “Mommy, are you really going to make us lie here until you take all the garbage, recycle, and yard waste cans in from the curb?”

Sofie: “I can not believe that she is making us ‘stay’ when she gets to run all over the place and drag heavy looking things around!”

Louise: “Sometimes Sofie, life is just not fair.  How would Mommy like it if we made her stay in one place while we ran up and down the driveway?” 

Sofie:  “You are so right Lulu, but if we get up she will be mad at us.  I don’t like when Mommy is mad at me, she makes this really loud noise.”

Louise: “Ok, well I guess laying her in the cool grass under the shade of the tree isn’t the worst thing that could happen.  She did just take us for a long walk and down to the river for a while.  Maybe we should listen to her?”

Sofie: “I will. But only this once and you better give me your cookie after dinner.”

Louise: “Here she comes, make like you didn’t mind waiting.”

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo <3

    You are such good girls! I always do what Mom says, but once her back is turned, all bets are off. You are 100% good. I’m still working on that…..

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake – Mommy thinks we are good, but we also get into a lot of trouble when she is not looking. – Sofie

    That’s a great down stay! Delilah won’t even stay in the bathroom when I am three feet away from her. :-(

      I was lucky that a squirrel or another dog was not walking by. Constant reinforcement gets the result. Many times Lulu will not go into a down because she feels to vulnerable. I allow her to sit as long as she stays.
