    I do lion/tiger style training...My dogs place on boxes when I train..They love it, sitting on their high places and wait eagerly for their turn. It always takes some time with a new dog, but they soon get used to it. Lukey gets so chilled, he slides off or falls asleep. I think he needs the slightly larger box. But it works. Annabelle, Katy and Tessa sit and wait quite anxiously for their turn. Especially if there are food reward And I think ,especially trick training, dogs do watch and learn from each other

    The little one is generally always over excited and that is the main thing I am focussing on at the moment. I bought them both in and just let him calm down, then I each time I went near him or looked at him he would get really excited so I would stand there and wait until he settled, then got him to sit calmly, then I would say good boy calmly and pat him, I did this off and on for an hour and it worked well. The issue was when I put them back outside, the little one got all upset and cried and sooked for about an hour. I was just worried he would sook all night, which he didn't, so I'll go again tonight.

    Yeah, just ignore them when they do that. They will realize that it does nothing soon enough! Lol

    Yup, agree with the posters above. My dogs know inside they have to behave, no barking, running or playing, unless we instigate a game , its quiet time...they just go to sleep or follow us around hoping that little bit of chicken might fall on the floor, but they know they are never to enter the kitchen. Its quite funny whem im cooking and 4 VERY interested poppets all in a row on the line dividing the lounge from the kitchen...so cute

    My old dog knew "out of the kitchen" but I haven't bothered teaching Banjo yet. I will have to though because she has the annoying habit of lying right where I am trying to do stuff, like near the sink or the dishwasher. She will move if I tell her to, but sometimes she then just moves to the next spot where I planned to be working.

    Have you tried giving your dogs a rawhide chew to keep them occupied inside? My dog still always has one on the go.
