Training Momma

Psst! Hi doggy friends. My training of Momma is going exactly as planned! Over the weekend she seemed to be always In Continents, and going to the bathroom all the time. I had to stop my guarding duties to check on her. But the potty training seems to be going well. Every time she uses the bathroom, I give her some positive reinforcement by giving her some cuddles afterward. I think she gets it now. She's a lot of work, but she's worth it.

Mom just laughed out loud in the library. She's in trouble now because you are so funny! We'll keep working on her training too.

You got the right idea Biggie, these people need SooOO much training. She'll learn real quick with positive renforcement buddy.
Love George

Yeah, I think maybe before I was guarding too loud, and it would make her nervous and make her In Continents. Now when I am quieter she is more Continents.

Man, she is a lot of work!

Thanks for your suggestions for my mutt Jake! I've used some of the tips and they've worked pretty well!
