Mad at Jasper :( Proud of Jasper :)

Today a friend of mine was at the door just as the evil mailman drove up. Before we knew it Jasper was running out the door towards the mail truck She ran after calling his name and he ran forward more... I calmly said "Jasper Come" And he came back to me and I ushered him inside ... at which point Cash decided he needed to show the mailman he had Squirrel and stepped outside too ... But Cash didn't venture further than the step.

So I'm mad that he is so intense about the mail... But proud that in all his mailman fury he still obeyed. It gives me confidence.




Missy, Jasper & Cash

It's awesome that he listened even when he was all freaked out about the mailman. I'm glad he's okay, that must have been scary.

Missy, what is the saying? We are less disappointed when we strive for progress versus perfection.

Good for you that you've gotten him to respond even when presented with the opportunity to chase the mailman! That's pretty impressive for Jasper!

I like your new photos!!

Missy that is a great feat to have him stop and come when he is in hot pursuit of that mean old mail person. I would be so proud not mad at him for coming that is the main thing. You did your training well. (Smarty would have been in the next state if the mail truck kept moving)

Missy, that is super great that he came back to you in that situation. We have worked on "come" and Cicero knows that word....but if he is really after something he doesn't hear a thing we say. You have done a great job and I think you both deserve an extra treat!!

I was very proud him. And relieved. I think he may have come out of fear of what would happen if he really got to the mail man. (remember he went and hid behind a planter when Cash caught a rabbit) But fear in this situation is OK with me too. Anything to keep him safe. And Dale, we both got treats...he got the usual-- I got a Lindt truffle! I like to call the Lindt balls.
