At the new house we have an alarm system, totally different sounds. Also the driveway has a motion detector if someone pulls in the driveway.. Poor Femka is so confused.. She hears that beep and I know she must be thinking " fire alarm game mom?"... Looks at me to see which way to go.. I am sure it will take some time for her to learn the difference but still. We also have not spent alot of time at the house yet and won't until the move Wednesday. Right now we are just " visiting.." With the change in alarm systems, the old one had a delay before it went off. The dogs almost never heard it. The new system goes off as soon as its contacts are moved. I am thinking when the move comes, I will make that sound mean " cookies" after I put the cancel. ( ie the second beep).. And the beep for the entry to the driveway- that beep means " cookies" as well... Anyone else have other suggestions? If it helps after we move I can do a video tape to show you what is happening..
