Samson Learns "Sit"

It was time to start some training this weekend with our little Sambo. We are using baby carrots and will continue to extend the length at which we make him sit and wait for his reward. He made it as long as five seconds today, however, the video I posted shows an instant reward.

On another note, he is fully house broken at nine weeks! YAY Samson! This weekend proved to be the turning point. I started bell training him two and a half weeks ago (he hits the small bell with his nose that is tied to a string and hung on the back door) and for the last week he was having just one accident a day. Usually it was my fault for not being quick enough, but since Friday he has been sitting at the back door after he rings waiting for us to take him out. Such a smart boy! Now to control the playful biting..... ;)

Way to go Samson!!! My favorite part though is when he calls you Momma. I giggled.
