Foundation Work Proved

We have painters at the house painting the two porches and some outside trim. They opened the back door to paint the inside trim, and there were the dogs, standing. The painters told Jack they were amazed that the dogs stayed and didn't try to run outside. When Jack told me this, I was so proud. Part of our foundation work is that the dogs wait to be released to go outside. An open door does not mean you bolt. I credit Susan Garrett's crate games with this success. Just this one piece--wait to be released--works so well in every day life, not to mention it keeps your dogs safe. They don't go bolting headlong into the street or after other dogs.
