...you really don't have time? I took Nyx and Tyr out to potty and brought them in, was going to crate them, get the corgis out to potty and needed to go out to an appointment. As we came inside, Nyx grabbed a tug and jumped on the couch. I said "out" and she did. :yikes: For the first time in three years, she just simply let go of the tug and laid there. Not only that, but she was holding full eye contact with me. Completely amazing. Somehow in the middle of my astonishment, I realized she was doing something wonderful that only took three years to teach her and doing it for the first time and needed a reward. So I released her so she could grab the tug again. She started playing and a couple minutes later I wanted to end this and continue on to get where I need to get to. So I said "out" again ~ I really wasn't expecting her to do so twice. But she did. She dropped the tug. And stared at me. WOW. So again I released her and she started playing again. Just out of curiosity I decided to see if she was really getting this, so I outted her a third time and she repeated dropping the tug and staring at me. Again I released her to get her toy. This time I traded her for a piece of treat and put her in her crate. I was out of time. I so wish I'd had time to really play with her and really make her reward worth the level of difficulty in the new behavior. I'm also wondering who this dog is and what she's done with the real Nyx.
