The Waiting Is the Hardest Part


It’s usually the third command we teach (after “sit” and “down”) and we use it before the dogs are allowed to do pretty much anything.  Before they can go outside, before their leashes get clipped on, or before are allowed to grab a toy.

And probably the most miserable – before they are allowed to eat.  Here Cooper demonstrates the absolute torture it is to have to wait for his breakfast.  “Maybe if I roll over real cute-like you’ll just let me have it already???”

For more information on adopting Cooper, please contact

      we do this one too. although with the release, we use “come here” which is also the recall word. our trainer suggested that.

      it is amazing how with some of them, the difference between sit and down is completely lost. 🙂 well, at least with emma.


  2. I love this video — it made me laugh! He’s such a wiggle butt… reminds me of Zoe. 🙂 We’re also working on the same “wait” command before meals too. She is getting there…slowly…..


  3. This is really just too cute!
