Photo Opportunities

Zekie, Claire, and Shelby

I have been working on teaching Claire to sit and stay. It is very handy for taking photos. She does sit, it just takes her a few seconds to respond. We will have to spend time now achieving a swift response.

We are also working on the stay. As soon as I back up enough to take the photo, Claire pops back up. That will be easy enough to extend her sit time with practice.

Zekie and Shelby have it down. They sit and wait throughout my corrections and work with Claire. Zekie learned quickly from watching Shelby. I would give the stay command and he would look at Shelby to see what she was doing and if she was upset that I was walking away. He saw that she was not upset so would stay and await further instruction.

Claire takes more repetition before things click, but she will get there.

In the meantime I get to enjoy practicing with these photo opportunities.
