My Dad’s a ‘Yes’ Man!

As I mentioned in a previous post, I’ve got my Dad back in training to try and correct some of his bad habits.

This week’s training session concentrated on getting him focused on me when we’re out and about. You know the routine, every time he looks away or seems distracted, I say, ‘Yes’, and when he refocuses on me, I give him a treat.

Okay, at his age it’s a bit like pulling teeth, but I think he might actually be getting there at last.

Perhaps you might like to try it on your human. It’s hard work, but hopefully it’ll be worth it in the end!


I am a large, friendly, affectionate and, even though I say so myself, fabulously handsome 3 year old German Shepherd Dog whose mother, Lexi, is one of the few German Shepherds in the UK to have qualified to become a Therapy Dog (PAT dog).
