Milo is an adorable little dog, that I’ve been teaching to ‘wait,’ and ‘come back.’
Using rewards, I’ve been asking him to ‘wait,’ for longer and longer periods (counting up the time in seconds) before asking him to ‘come here.’ He’s learned it very fast. However, the next, harder step is to replicate this in other places. Next, we’re going to a nearby field. Once he’s got the hang of the commands, the real test will be in the park where other dogs are running around and then by the roads. I’ll be aiming to encourage him to ‘wait,’ no matter what distractions are around him. So, far so good.
