I have to admit that I love Cocoa’s eyes. There are times when they are so soulful. I can tell her to “watch me,” and she does! “Watch” is the first command she learned at DS101. She knows when I say this, something is about to happen!! “Watch” comes before the words sit or stay or “Let’s go see the ducks!” It is the best command because it let’s me know whether or not she is “tuned-in” to me. She is in this picture—totally tuned in. (smile)

“Watch me!” works. Then it is followed by “good watch” (and sometimes an extra treat). When that happens, she is extra special tuned-in.
