Counter surfing training was on today's agenda with Sherman because his terrific nose leads him astray. We began by leasing him then putting some goodies on the counter. When he would turn his attention away from the counter and look at us we would click and treat. No verbal marker from us, as we want him self correct. Eventually we will click/treat him for not paying any attention to anything on the counter, then gradually fade that out as well.
