This morning was the breakthrough morning for teaching Goof to wait for his food. When I got the food from the pantry I had Clifford sit as usual, put the food in his bowl, and then asked for “Paw”. He drooled and wagged his tail while sitting and gave me the paw while staring into my eyes. I said “Go!” and he dove in. When I turned around to feed Goof, he was sitting by his bowl. I came over and he looked straight into my eyes, and raised his right paw. I put the food in and then shook his paw. He didn’t move. Then I said “Go!” and he dove in.
That is a smart little monkey!
