Training a terrier ... continued

Despite daily training, I'm gradually accepting the fact that what we affectionately have termed "terrier mode" is just something to be expected with Khloe. Our daily walks are training sessions, and lately I feel we are actually walking together, with eye contact and a slack lead, some of the time anyway. I'll call that progress! We're working on "heel" a little bit, and she definitely knows this from prior training with a previous owner because she has started sitting when I stop walking--something I did not train her to do. Despite our progress, some days I cannot help but feel like Khloe views me simply as her very own, very generous walking doggy treat dispenser. And I'm okay with that.

If you haven't yet, be sure to check out the "Just Keep Sniffing" collection I've put together at Zazzle. In the collection you will find funny dog training tanks and tees and humorous, customizable "Terrier Mode" dog beds and door mats, as well as Christmas ornaments and stockings for the C.O.O. (Chief Olfactory Officer) of the family.
