The puppy knows the T word

The puppy doesn't like it when maelkann gets up and leaves in the morning. Frankly I hate the earliness of the hour too. But we can't figure out whether it's that C is leaving or that the pack is not staying together. Anyway, he barks. He barks as C gets dressed and grabs his stuff and then he barks at the door and then back to me still in bed to let me know that C has left.

So C has been experimenting with how to stop the puppy barking at hell-early-o'clock-in-the-morning. I suggested a treat. It's a good diversion tactic and associates C leaving with a good thing. This morning I suspect the puppy got two treats, I know he got a final one cause he came in and crunched it right near my ear! But we had our first success with no barking in the morning at all whatsoever! Hooray!
