I must be doing something right with these dogs.
I settled all the dogs in with some marrow bones. Sherman is tethered when I can't watch him 100% because he's a resource guarder and will also take whatever he wants from the girls.
Everyone has to "chew" on their towel. Sherman is really good about staying on his towel and when I say "get on your towel!" if he's inching toward the outside, he gives a Grrrump! And moves his butt onto the towel. Lola likes to drag her bone all over the place & it makes me nuts. Marrow bones are gross! So tonight she takes her bone into the bedroom and starts chewing on the rug. I say "Lola, go get on your towel" and turn to get a kleenex to pick the icky thing up & direct her where I want her to be. When I turn around, she is carrying her bone back to her towel! No way!
I tested her again when the bone was about 1/2 inch away from the edge of the towel. Again, when I asked, she picked up the bone & moved it to the center of the towel. What a good girl!
"Marrow bones are yummy!!"
