    DefaultNo "Good boy!" for Flynn...

    "Good boy!". Phhh. Might as well call out "Nice tree!" for all the effect it has on him.

    "Lay down Flynn"
    He lays.
    "Good boy!"
    LEAP UP! Goodie goodie goodie! I did good and I'm released!
    "Lay DOWN, Flynn"
    He lays.
    "Good boy!"
    POP! Like the next Kleenex tissue popping out of the box.
    "LAY DOWN, Flynn!!!!!!"
    He lays.
    "Thank you. Stay."

    He lays and stays. And stays... and stays...

    "Thank you" works, "Good boy" does not.

    It takes a lot of time with the rescues to figure out what works and what does not. After two years we finally realized this little verbal difference makes a huge difference to Our Man.

    We have discovered the same thing with Riley. She thinks the "Good girl" is her release.

    Aww. Obviously "good boy" is his release command. Whether you know it or not.

    Love your conversations.... LOL

    Yeps, Zoe thinks her release words are "Good girl" ...and then expects a treat. :

    Zoe should get together w/Flynn. We'll send her to you on her Zoe Tour.

    Same here, I cannot say "good boy" he jumps up and expects a cuddle, pet. treat whatever.
    I have to say it in a very boring voice: "that's fine Taz well done"

    Well we knew Flynn marched to a different drummer. Whatever works, Nance.
