[personal profile] sasha_feather asked for a picture of my dog for More Joy Day, but first I had to find the camera, and then I had to charge the camera...


This is Aiko, and that's Aiko's dinner. Aiko is looking for eye contact, because I don't say "break" unless we have eye contact, and he doesn't get to eat his dinner until I say "break". He learned this game very quickly. Aiko, who was raised in the home of a dog breeder, likes to do what the other dogs are doing. When I got him I had two other dogs; since they sat and waited for permission to go to their bowls, he sat and waited for permission to go to his bowl. It only took a few corrections for him to learn to get up, not when the other dog gets up, but when I say "Aiko, break."

He is an only dog now, so I don't need to do crowd control at mealtime, but this is still good practice.

This story is for [ profile] randomdreams because I think if it will work for anyone, it will work for him. I've told this story twice, and it flopped twice. I think there's something funny in there -- I literally fell on the floor laughing when it happened -- but I don't know how to get it out.

That said, if you listen to the story, please come back and give me feedback. You can comment, or just click a button on the poll at Dreamwidth.
