An important part of what we are learning in the puppy raiser process is when to recognize that Jingles is ready to do her homework. It’s easy to see when she is tired and needing a nap!

Her trigger word is “Yes!” This means that each time she does exactly what she is asked, she gets an immediate “Yes!” and a treat, which is a piece of her kibble. In this picture, she has been asked to sit, has done so, was given a treat and is anxiously waiting on her next command.
