Nolan has a habit of bursting out of the back door when it is opened, or getting in the way at the front door when guests are entering. Do we punish these behaviors to make them stop? No. We ask "what do we want him to do instead?", then teach that. Within an hour both issues were resolved by teaching him to Sit and Wait patiently for the back door to be opened, and to Stay while we answered the door or when someone was leaving. Great job, Nolan!
