I Sit And You Pass Out Treats

You Had Me At Sit

by Houndstooth on

Since we brought Flattery home, my husband has been working diligently to teach her one thing.  He has been working at getting her to sit on command.  I know that some people think Greyhounds can’t sit, but they can.  Other people think they can’t be taught to sit, or do anything else on command, but […]
