Today we taught Pepper how to Wait and Stay, and boy, what a struggle. I usually begin by facing the dog and taking just one step away for a few seconds, but Pepper would come towards me, no matter how small of a step I would take. I then tried turning my back to her and taking a step. Voila, we had success! The moral of the story: if something doesn't work, try something else!
