Serious training

We've been doing some serious training today, Paddy and I. The aim of the lesson is for Paddy to realise that jumping on the back of the armchair and throwing himself at the window when a cat comes within two miles is NOT acceptable behaviour. So this is him, wanting to and remembering he mustn't.

  2. I don't think so, YP. That's just masking the problem rather than training him out of it.
