This video is my attempt at establishing a place for her in our kitchen. Once I established the place with this exercise, she goes there and stays while I unload the dishwasher, etc. She was previously chewing the dishwasher bins while I unloaded it, so this exercise solved a big problem!
We incorporated the 'place' practice with the wait and take practice from the prior week. We are now also requiring eye contact before she takes treats- this is the equivalent of her asking 'please, may I' before she takes action.
If you watch closely towards the end of the video, you can see her stop her body from lurching forward towards the treat. Instead of acting on her impulse, she looks towards me and 'asks' permission.
Just minutes earlier, she was not quite as sharp (see video below)...
