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
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.
