Finally! We found some time between snow storms to train a dog! Tonight we worked on Gracie's excitement when someone comes to the door, which results in her jumping. By teaching her to go to a particular spot (a small throw rug) on command, she would sit or lie there calmly as a person entered the home. The ultimate goal will be for her to do it automatically when she hears the doorbell or a knock on the door.
