Come undone or Daoism of training


It took some time to teach Lily to greet dogs nicely on and off the lead. I use ‘sit and wait’ then reward when things go well. Lily’s not aggressive, but she’s loud and this can annoy anyone.


It took a few weeks to unlearn all the good things and start happily bolting out at any dog she sees. So, back to square one…


Dolly and Brian are her back-up. This is the reason she thinks she can. So she will. Except she is not actually allowed. So she won’t. It’s all like Daoism/Taoism. Yin and Yang, harmony, good and bad, a spot of black in white and all that. Or, at least I choose to see it as such.

      1. Haha, lily’s high-pitched. Dolly (the Great Dane) emits proper low woof-woof-woof barking and Lily bounces into people. It’s Dolly’s bark and Lily’s ambush that scare people. When it’s just Lily barking, people laugh (they don’t appreciate the amount of dog in her little body) πŸ™‚

      2. We think you’re pretty smart as Humans go and we always understand and appreciate your writing. Also, so long as you have opposable thumbs, the Cats care about you, too. (We know this because our Meowies told us so.) Woofs and Wags, Cosmo and Stella

      3. Our Meowies tell us that they prefer to have someone else open things for them even though they can do it themselves. For example, our Meowies have a Cat Door from the porch to the great outdoors. They will go through this door if they really have to, but they much prefer to have the Humans open the whole porch door for them. Woofs and Wags, Cosmo and Stella
