I sent a video to a client recently of their dog lounging with us while watching a movie, and she was absolutely thrilled. All of our dogs we have "in-house" are on a daily rotation. I walk my own dogs every morning after the initial kennel rotation and then we get to training! On Sundays and Mondays the dogs that are here for boarding get 'recess' time doing whatever makes them happiest. Some dogs want to romp in the pool, others want to just lay around and be left alone for the day. Right now we have three long term dogs in house (but Ivan is an outdoor dog- so two who get to have house freedoms). These long term dogs get rotated in our house daily and they get to stay out of their kennels while I'm cleaning, cooking, answering the door for deliveries, having guests over, etc. This gets them ready for whatever they may be doing when they get to their forever home. I try to do the minimum amount of bonding necessary to complete the training, so that I am the trainer and the owners become the dogs "person". 👌🏻 It's a difficult balance, but we get it done. I don't show much of this, because it's pretty boring 😂But here is a video of Trikos K9 "Harrie" a few days ago laying next to me while I was working through emails and inbox messages. He's just chilling- I didn't ask him to lay next to me, he's one of the most chill dogs we have in the house right now. His favorite tv show is Family Guy, and his favorite smell in the kitchen is eggs. He loves to be near you, and is always facing the entry way no matter where he is in the house. He likes to always have an eye on the person and the other eye on an exit. Very environmentally aware, and extremely stable. 👌🏻 ______________________________________________
