We have a beautiful 8-month old puppy. We've started training her using positive reinforcement but she is now starting to outsmart us! I have a 3 year old daughter that the puppy adore! She gets terribly excited around my daughter and we are now trying to teach the pup to leave my daughter alone (my daughter doesn't always feel like playing and isn't particular fond of the doggy licks in the face at 7am in the morning!). We've started to say 'leave it' when the puppy goes up to my daughter, then we reward her when she backs away from her. But miss Labrador has now figured out that everytime she walks up to my daughter and she correctly responds to 'leave it', she gets a treat. So what does she do? She keeps walking up to my daughter and then backs off to get the treat! And if I don't treat, then she just continues to hassle my daughter. Does anyone have any advice? I desperately want to reach a point where I can have both my daughter and the puppy in the same room without the pup being all over my daughter. Ideas?
