Can you teach herd respect?
So I played with Rose again last night. I noticed immediately that our last lesson was still with her. She was not to keen to be with me for one, but once she decided to come to me, she was much lighter and MUCH more respectful. We mostly played the circling game, and she upheld her part very well. Much nicer to have her GO….and then maintain. We also played with a new game, the beginnings of Spanish walk and beginning of a bow. Just tinkering, as raising a leg is actually one of HER favorite games to play on ME.
So the interesting thing is this…..while I was feeding them this morning, I noticed something I have not seen in a long time. Rose was cautious while approaching Snookie to eat with her. Usually they eat practically nostril to nostril. There has been a no permission needed policy about this for quite a while. But I saw her creep in like she had foundered, and very cautiously reach her nose toward Snookies.
Hmmm, I wonder if this has anything to do with a renewed respect for MY leadership, being transferred back to respecting Snookies leadership. How interesting?Savvy On
