tips on adding a whistle (update)

Ha Ha this is really funny. I'm having trouble teaching Lola to sit after one blast on the whistle. Every time she sees the whistle or the treats she sits. I don't get a chance to blow on it. I'm trying to sneak treats into my hand several minutes in advance and turning my back so she can't see the whistle but she is usually better at seeing me sneak then I am at sneaking.

:lol: :lol: The all seeing dog, no fooling them, they read us from head to toe, especially where goodies are involved :P :P :D

Might help if you try having the whistle in view all the time, in your hand or in your mouth so she picks up no cue from that. Also, no treat for sitting if you haven't blown the whistle or asked for a sit. Cassie will try that for almost all her commands trying to get me to treat treats unless I ask for the "trick".

It's not easy staying ahead of a clever fact I'm no so sure I have ever even caught up yet :lol: :lol:
