trick or treaters and your puppy
I'm thinking today would be an awesome day to practice sitting when people ring the doorbell, as it will be happening quite frequently for trick or treating. Any suggestions on how to do this? Theo is a bit reactive, especially when it's dark outside. He will be in our kitchen/dining room, blocked by a baby gate, but he'll still be able to see the front door. I"m just concerned that he will get up on the baby gate, bark and growl, and I won't be able to take him below his threshold.
Or should we practice LAT?? Which is going really well outside, by the way! Unless a dog is walking by....then, he goes over threshold, and anything that is moving that drives/walks by after that gets a bark and an attempted chase.
