These last couple of weeks have been an exercise in self control for those of us here at Clever Canine.
That goes for the humans and the dogs.
For these past weeks, we have had a nest of baby bunnies by our back door.
They are so stinkin’ cute!
The problem is, every one of us here, human and dog alike, wants to get to those bunnies.
We all have our own reasons.
Most of us just want to watch the little ones grow, though I have a suspicion that some of the dogs have other ideas.
And I’m fairly certain there are a few staff members here that would LOVE to sneak in a baby bunny cuddle, against their better judgment.
What can I say, we are huge animal lovers here.
Many of us even have certifications to prove it.
To keep the babies safe, we set up cones around the nest site.
That way we wouldn’t accidentally let any of the dogs get too close.
We also worked on the "Leave It" command whenever we had dogs (or overly-interested people) that were close to the cones.
"Leave It" is one of the most important commands to teach a dog.
It is the command we use whenever we want our dog to completely ignore something: whether it’s another dog, a person, a treat, a toy, or a baby bunny.
The thing is, we don’t always have the luxury of having bright orange cones around the forbidden object we don’t want our dogs to have.
It’s so very important to have the command instilled in our dogs when it doesn’t matter so they will follow the command when it does matter.
Getting that level of obedience takes proper instruction and practice.
It certainly doesn’t happen overnight.
But, with consistency and practice, it does happen.
