Last night was our first night having Oreo with us and she was just so dang easy. She even slept on the bed with Tess for almost the whole night. It was so cute! And Tessie woke up all smiles when she saw Oreo was there. Yay!
And tonight, we actually took Oreo out to the hotel's "restaurant" tonight for a trial outing and gave her the command UNDER to get her under the table. She reluctantly went and although she did break command once, I quickly corrected her and she stayed still under the table for over an hour. Even when other people and dogs stopped by our table. Good stuff.
We have been working on keeping the dogs in command with distractions. For example, telling them DOWN and they must lay down and not get up no matter the distractions around them without a FREE command from us. I'm going to post a video on the Travels with Tessie Toodles FB page so you can see Jeremy working with Oreo on the down with distractions command. It's pretty cool. Honest. ;)
She has been either alerting or pre-alerting everyday! Next up we will work on the BARK as well as getting her to alert (with barking) to a Grand Mal seizure as it takes place, not simply as a pre-alert. Phew! Lots to do!
And God help us, we take Oreo to the mall tomorrow. Say a prayer for a good day without having to hear the words, "Clean up in aisle 10!"
And now for a little "awwwwwww" I give you Tess and Oreo...
And last but not least, here is Oreo in her OFFICIAL seizure dog alert vest.
