    Oh, I can do it in my room, instead of outside?? Thats pretty cool! But on the other hand, I want her to be OK in the yard on her own.

    Baby steps

    Yes you can do it in your room. I actually started Batty in the spare room. I can put a bowl in his crate with him and he won't touch the contents - no matter what they are - until I give him the cue to. ETA: I can do the same outside, inside, at other peoples homes, out the front and in the park too. All without the tether. I used the tether for all of 3 days.

    I figure I'll let you get the hang of the TOT, over the next day or so then send you through the clicker stuff, unless you want it now? Have you managed to pick up a clicker yet?

    Masha... i understand your frustration with your parents. We got Lucy when I was 16, and I was mainly responsible for her. I put in so much hard work with her... and my mum undid everything I did. Mum believes in "babying" dogs....

    If they're having such a hard time with the way you do things, just flat out ask them: "WHY did you let me have a puppy then?"

    Question: This TOT technique - does it work with toys that they dont play with usually? Such as Dora Nylabone? I mean once we've gotten through at least a couple of weeks doing it with food

    I personally wouldn't do it with a nylabone TBH. Soft toys, balls that kind of thing yes, but when transferring from food to toy the dog could rip a tooth out!

    Tugs are great, I can actually make fleecy plaited tugs (awesome for tug training) which are really easy if you have a fabric store nearby.

    I like doing them with fleece because it's soft, strong and gentle on the dogs mouth. I keep three away from Batty except when training and he has a 4th that he carries around the house with him in the mornings. It's very cute! Ears flat back, head carried high, tail high (not tense) and as soon as you say to him "Batty, What've you got there?" he'll go into the full body puppy wiggle and rub up against you like a cat
