digg'n it

I love this video! Sharing is not one of George's strengths, so anytime I can make something fun as a group, when all noses or bodies are snuggled together...I take advantage of it. Behaviour is reinforced by it's consequences.

Digging is also one of their rewards for a zippy recall! I put all the doggie things they love to do on cue so when out and about, it provides an alternative to food reinforcers.

Back to George ...having to snuggle in to investigate, without getting snarky, and having fun doing so, will make it more likely to happen again in the future. Finding play pals that are great about sharing is important too.
