Write to Dr. Jacki, ASK THE VET
I also like her approach: How your dog is to behave is entirely up to you; it is your home. Isn't that a respectable way to raise a dog? To allow the owner to decide if their dog is allowed on the couch, sleeps on the floor, or becomes a lap dog--it's all up to you. She's not a cookie cutter trainer; that's for sure. Many would insist that the dog remains on the floor at all times...period. Oliver would not care for that approach.
So we're going to let this trainer give us a trial run. After all, I'm such a slave driver that she ought to have a chance to work with me before she "signs on the dotted line." Just kidding of course. I'm not really a slave driver!
I hope you'll watch the blog closely for her post. I anticipate it will arrive sometime in the near future, and I'll be eager to see if I can pull this off without going bonkers. I'm going to enjoy the challenge of juggling my own posts with Dr. Jacki's and the trainer's; I hope you do too.
