|No update in a little while, things for the most part have been going pretty good. The house has been dog-proofed, and we've had no more escape incidents.
I've been trying to do more things to keep the dogs busy, as things are still a little hectic here and I don't have as much time to spent with formal sports as I did before. One thing I've picked back up is trick training, to give them something to work towards without actually having to go out and train.
Right now I'm trying to teach Mulder "shame", where he covers his eyes/face with a paw.
He knows "touch" as a command to touch something with his paw, which as been helpful in getting his paw up off the ground and in the general vicinity of where it should go, but he's not really grasping the concept of lifting his paw up over his snout.
Does anyone have any tips or tricks for getting this behavior naturally? I've tried getting him to lay down and hover the treat above his nose, and rubbing a little water on the top of his snout to try and get him to wipe it off, but he just rubs his face on the floor or smacks me with his foot to get the treat!
