My dogs basically know the place command. (remain on a bed, a mattress...) until I give the release. They also know to keep it for quite a while, when I'm out of sight. But if I'm absent for a bit too long they take their own decision. Even worse when the doorbell rings or other distraction occurs - they're off!
I've read about people with dogs who stay on their place whatever happens as long as they haven't recieved the release command. I really have problems to believe this, although on the other hand I know, those people do not lie.
I know - lack of leadership. Repeat, repeat, repeat ..................! Has anyone successful experiences about this. Is it possible and how?
I damned want those biests to stay where they are, but they seem to be more thickheaded than I.
Thanks Bob. Yes I'll decrease the level of distraction and try everything again the way you describe.
By the way the "damned biests" and that they are "thickheaded" was just a joke. I don't think like that about them. I guess I'll have to take care with my jokes, as people often take them seriously, because if they can only see the written text and not my laughing face at the same time this can lead to a wrong impression.
