My greatest achievements however, have involved people outside the family. There's a nice man who walks his dog, Milo, at around the same time of day as I get my regular outing. I knew he had treats as I could smell them and I initially tried directly accessing his pockets which only succeeded in getting me a sharp telling off from 'Her Indoors'. However, I persisted in looking hungry every time I saw him, until his wife was moved by my woeful face and made him give me a treat. Now, every time I see him, I give him the command, by sitting down to attention, and he comes up with the goodies. He's even learnt to keep his fingers out of the way so I don't have to worry about avoiding them in my rush to get to the edibles. I'm working on getting second helpings, but that's advanced training so takes a bit longer.
If any young dogs are reading this, and want to know how it's done, I'm happy to tell then for a small fee. It'll save a lot of time working it out for themselves.
