While I’ve been struggling to get over the bronchitis and ear infection that’s been keeping me from blogging, we have been working on Kyndall’s recently developed cape-phobia, with excellent results. As many advisers pointed out, especially yummy treats have the power to entice puppies into doing all kind of things they might otherwise resist. Tiny bits of ham and pepperoni now seem to be entwined in Kyndall’s mind with the act of donning her cape. The result: she positively leaps in my lap to Dress. Her ears may pull back for a second when she’s being buckled into it.
But then she seems oblivious to it.
Next up: stopping her from jumping on people when she greets them. (That one is likely to prove more challenging.)
