    Wink Triangle of Temptation Works for Us

    Both dogs are very very possessive of me.
    And I faced ongoing trouble when feeding.

    Marley was always reluctantly eating, Schubert wolfed the food down, Marley's too. Schubert got fat. I did all sorts of things. Not going ahead but teasing out my creativity!

    I experimented with different things.

    Today I followed the Triangle of Temptation (K9 Training) and like a dream:
    both dogs fed on THEIR bowl
    I had peace and quiet
    And they were both quiet and relaxed afterwards.

    A first!
    I am very happy.

    I meant to say that the first time I heard of the TOT was when I saw a behavioural trainer at the RSPCA because I needed help in preventing my dog from bringing down kangaroos. She taught me a watered down version of the K9 method. Starting with high value treats at home and then translating that to the kind of situations where I would lose control over the dog, ie. wildlife chasing. I never got to that stage then though. Wish I had because it makes a lot of sense.

    I suppose I use the underlying principle in my everyday training now with Banjo too. Even doing a recall before I allow her to go play with her doggy friends is a form of that, I think. Though not as strict as I will not always make her wait before she can go play. Yet.

    There is the thread... that's where I got started.
    If the eating situation is worked out, that is definitely a bonus for us.
    Marly, the mini is so badly trying to make me dance to her tune, it is not funny anymore.
