I trained all four of my dogs do a pretty "sit-stay" for me, all lined up in our kitchen, while I cut up some treats instead of having them out of control trying to see what I was doing.
I remember the first time this happened. As I turned around to reward them for such a good stay, there in the middle of all the dogs, sat my little cat, CoCo. I laughed and went on about our business.
Then next time I started to cut up the treats, I was giving the cue for everyone to sit and in ran CoCo, as fast as her little legs would bring her and "Plop!" she sat right along with them!
I gave them all the stay cue and started to cut up the treats. When I turned back around to reward them, CoCo was still there, looking at me with her big green eyes. "Meow," she said!
She did a "sit-stay" along with the dogs and patiently awaited her turn for the treat! This became part of her daily routine from then on.
I have never worked with her with any kind of training and thought to myself--what a waste! She is now 13 years old. My other kitty, now 14, never paid any attention to what we were doing, never showed up for a treat.
Way to go, Coco!
