One good "trick" is "go to your mat." Shama has a tiny blanket (12x18 maybe). You could move a blanket like that to various places and train her to always go lie on it for a treat.
Please let us know what else you do with her. Have fun![/QUOTE]
I should try your suggestion about staying on the mat. I actually have a mat that I got for my corgi when we had her in obedience and were teaching her the command "place" which was to stay on her mat until released. I should try it with Willow.
I've been teaching her a few commands such as sit, stay, down and front (or some people use the word come). I'm surprised how quickly she catches on. Unfortunately I can't practice outside as we don't have a fenced area and I don't think her "front" (come) command would work very well outside off the leash. I can't trust her off the leash plus there are too many predators where we live such as owls, eagles and coyotes to take a chance.
