He has me so well trained

Well, Brady has us very well trained. I now have to bribe him to come in from the yard. He will come and knock at the door to come inside. Then, when I open the door, he sits and stares at me until I offer the right treat. If I offer him a cookie, no go, he just stares. If I offer him a bone, no go, he just stares. When I close the door, he knocks again. I must offer him a chicken treat (homemade chicken jerky) before he will come inside. Can you we say spoiled brat? Well, at least one of us is well trained!!

Max comes to the door and taunts me. He stands there just long enough to make a statement that he is coming in only on HIS terms. He seems to know that he has some "power" here because he can dart away from me if I try to grab him. It can be so frustrating!

Karen, these babies are really smart, in no time they wrap you around their paws.

Benji sometimes would not come to eat his meals and snacks if I don't pick him up and put him right at his food bowl. It is quite funny. He just would wait until I give in. If I ignore him, he would not eat, even if he is hungry.

Best, Poornima

Yes, it definitely sounds like he has you trained . I tell DH that my border collies growing up on the farm wouldn't have gotten away with most of the things I let Carlito and Nico do, probably because this breed is so stinking cute that it's hard to discipline them!

Todd's comes when I call him but he will back up when I bend down to pick him up...unless I bribe him with jerky or freeze dried salmon
He's too smart for his own good..lol
