    Yup, shut the door. You don't want kitten coming in and spoiling it

    The other bonus of feeding her in your room is you won't have to deal with your mum saying you're torturing her either.

    Yes, some of its true, but I hardly think itty bitty Dora is gonna lose her mind

    I don't think so either! Dora will be fine, if anything Dora is better off this way

    Yea. Mum can get that stick out of her arse, cos I'm tired of her verbally abusing me. Its sh!ts me up the wall, with her telling me what a terrible person I am, how I dont love Dora... Excuse me, mother dearest, if I didnt love Dora would I be BOTHERING with this tiring food exercise? Would I be enduring an hour of painfully sad yapping if I didnt love her? URG

    Dora needs you to put some serious time in now, and you will be the one reaping the benefits in no time at all.

    I know that it is hard, but if you can sit through the barking until you get the 1 min + of silence it will be an incredible breakthrough. I can understand if you won't want to do that though as it would mean sitting through your mums comments and the barking. Chances are you can't do this in the morning - so do it in your room first and if that works continue to do it in your room until she's comfortable with it. Then move outside with it and she should have stopped barking.

    When you put her outside you MUST not go out to her when she is barking, at all. You need to be consistent with her for her to benefit from the training. It doesn't matter if she's outside for 5 mins to go to the toilet or an hour while you're busy, do not go to her when she is barking ever. I hope that doesn't come across too bossy

    Not at all. Im a bit worried about the neighbours. I'll drop some notes in their letterboxes int he morn telling them about how I'm training Dora, though. Hopefully they'll understand. Im worried they wont, cause they were really reluctant about me getting a dog.

    Off to do TOT right now. You reckon if I think positively and imagine Dora not barking, she'll bark less?

    Alright, I cheated. When I put her out, I rpepared her food really quick, quick enough for her not to start barking. WHen I first put her out, theres 30seconds of no barking, and I assume this is her puzzlement keeping her silent.
    Is it alright for me to do this? I said 'good girl' when I got out there, meaning for her silence, I dont know if she understood me??? I did everything as per usual, she now looks at me when I stand by her side, not one glance at the food before I said 'yes'.
    PS. I wont be able to read your replies till I get home from school, but any are appreciated
