We had a great session with Buddy tonight. Buddy is a whirling dirvish of barking and
spinning when people enter and leave the house. What probably started as an emotional
response has now become a ritualized behavior. To break this habit we are going to teach him something new - to go to a spot and wait while people come and go. We were able to teach him Go To Spot fairly quickly, and by the end of our session we were able to open the interior door without him getting off his spot.
