She has already learnt one command - "Out". I don't favour the dogs being in the kitchen. I don't want a dog to beg as I'm preparing dinner and for their own safety, I want them out of the way as I drain off pasta or such like.
So the simple command of "Out" is always used.
And it was the same for Brook. So I was delighted when after only the 5th time, she not only went out, she even SAT at the threshold !
All that early training and meeting and playing with other dogs finall took a toll on her, judging by the photo.
When I took this picture the weather was horrible - rain and winds - so she certainly was in the best place - close to my fire!
