So last week in dog training, we taught Magda to “leave it.” The idea is that you can put food in front of her, tell her to leave it, and she’ll wait for permission to eat it. We’ve only worked at this with dog kibble so far, but I would like to extend it to human food because… well… it could make for some fun photos, no?
With this in mind, tonight we tried her first human food, and I opted for bananas because even if she failed and bolted toward the fruit, she’d have to open it from the skin first. But look! She did so great. She sat and watched them and me, just begging for the fruit. In the end, we didn’t give her a banana, but she got some great dog treats. What a good girl!
