The girls were alone twice today. Once and lunch and again when I went to class. No barking when I returned from lunch, but a couple barks when I came home from class, even though Dave was home then.
Combining the key trigger with the back door movement is a real challenge for her. Because it felt like it was too much for her at this point in her training, I’ve decided to go back to working on duration out of sight before working on specific triggers again. The back door is a trigger itself but she is quite good when I go out of sight in any other direction, so I really need to work on the back door.
