I don't have anything special to post today as I've been extremely busy and tired lately. However, I found this video of Eva and the hoover which was made about two weeks ago.

Here is the video of Eva's improvement with the hoover after 1 WEEK!

We've been faithfully doing this practice everyday since my previous video and I'm so pleased that Eva can actually literally leave the hoover in peace now. She either watches the hoover moving around her while she's sitting on her mat or she walks around the house without paying much attention to the hoover.

that is amazing! What a great job you have done with her! Oh I feel so guilty that we don't work with dakota enough with the vacuum but you have given me some great tips.

Thinking of you with Mika on Saturday...things have been crazy...Lenny's Dad is very, very ill and I have had kidney stones :(
Will be in touch..I am sorry!!! xoxo

Miley said...

Good girl Eva!
I'm very impressed with your improvement! Keep it up!

Cuddles and licks,
Love Miley xxx

P.S. Your house is so pretty!

That's fantastic Priscilla! What a great job you did of training Eva to leave the vacuum alone!

Is Mika still scheduled for surgery on Sat? We'll be thinking about him...

jen said...

Good job Eva!!!

You do a great job with training:)

Kerry said...

Wow! Good job Eva! Kirby doesn't like the vacuum, but no biggie. I was really happy about that... Vacuums scared me when I was a kid... it was a tough fear for me to conquer, and that is with people explaining how/why they work. I can't imagine being a dog and getting used to one! Yaaay Eva! :D

AMAZING and to think that was a pretty long standing behavior before and what FANTASTIC TRAINING you guys have done to have that type of improvement. It is always amazing to me when you see how fast the dogs can learn a new behavior, especially something like what you have done. HUGE CONGRATS to both of you, you guys ROCK! I am very impressed

Yas said...

Great job Eva! I'm soo impressed!

Sara said...

WOW! Great job! Good girl Eva!

Priscilla, you should be so proud of yourself. That takes so much patience and perserverence,but look at the results! Amazing.

We're still working on the vacuum, and I realized we are going to have work on it everyday in order to get the results I want.

Kathy said...

Priscilla, I wished I had thought of doing that with our beloved Zephyr, a blue merle sheltie! He used to go bonkers when ever I vacuumed!
Eva is doing so well with your training her!

I saw your blog on Dog Daze and saw what a pretty girl Eva is!

Zephyr has also gone over the Rainbow Bridge, replaced by Raider the Golden Retriever who could care less about the vacuum! LOL

Keep up the good work!

Way to go Eva!
Happy Weekend,

Such a good girly :)
we hoped mika gets well soon, god bless him.
Hopefully, you would be going to the Cutie Pet Fair at central park, this saturday or sunday?

Okay...honestly, I don't know who I am more impressed with - You or Eva!!! Well done to you both! All dogs can be taught - they are all just so brilliant - but humans learning how to teach their canine loves to live in the human world, now there's the problem!!
Really love meet you and Eve!

Christmas-etc... said...

PS That is...I really loved meeting you and Eva on your blog (Had to qualify my typo of above...looked kind of strange...and I really am not!)

Diana said...

wow, what a great job you have done. Diana

Peggy Frezon said...

Great job. You both showed a lot of patience.

Remington said...

Great job, my friend! Have a fun weekend!
