My little smarty pants is just a dream. I just LOVE her so much! She now sits and stays about 15′ away while I put her meal in place and then tell her to come. She is perfect. On walks, every once in awhile I stop and ask her to sit which she does.
The bell thing by the doggy door we are still working on, but she has already done it 2 or 3 times on her own. Every morning she lets me know (in bed) that she wants out and I tell her to go ring the bell. I have to get out of bed and point to it and say it again before she does and then I open the door. She hasn’t had any mistakes in the house.
After you left we worked on it some more and on a walk one day she picked something up and I said, ‘drop it’ and she immediately did! It surprised me.
I’m so glad I called you! Thanks for everything
