Yesterday, i finally began trying to teach this to Buddy, so far, we've only worked on his putting his paw on my arm, when i lie on the floor, and we did that over and over. Big prizes, he's got that much so far---"if mom lies on floor, she likes me to put my paw on her arm". last night, we were lying on floor watching a movie, and doncha know, Buddy saw me lying on the floor too, so he ran over and smiled really big and put his paw on my arm!! He looked so proud of himself!!
