Thank you. I'll have to start working on this. Zoe is 13 weeks. She will settle at times during the day when I'm up and doing stuff. She will sleep while I clean or am up and about in the house. I am home all day with her and take her with me to run quick errands and other than the usual puppy stuff she's ok. ANY TIME I try to sit on the couch in the living room she goes nuts biting, barking and trying to get me up. I do exercise her often and spend pretty much the entire day with her. I'm torn between trying to "be the boss" and wanting to spend time with her. I would love if she could be content with a short break by my feet. Somehow I always end up on the floor with her in my lap trying to remove my fingers.

That is one of the steps in Mind Games. Game #4. I did it with my shelter mix pup. Worked like a charm. Mind Games (version 1.0) by M. Shirley Chong

The video said the 30 min. is a minimum. You can go up to three hours. Don't know if I could just sit in one chair for three straight hours, I'd be going as nuts as the dog!

Yeah I will be playing with that number. As long as I get the point across I'm doing good.

I know trainers who have done it for years. 'Sit On The Dog' is taught in their beginner obedience classes. I did it with some of my dogs before I even knew it had a name.

I did it without knowing about it too, lol. Although, I'm not sure if I did it correctly, since mine is just a long down without a leash. Still, it's a great exercise. Ha ha OP, I thought you meant "sit on top of your dog" for real, lmao! I found this link that explains it well:

Wheres my sanity: Sit on the Dog, aka: The long down

LOL I love it when an old concept has a bizarre new name. Makes me think of this foolish education concept called a rubric. You can't just all it a list.

You're not actually sitting ON the dog. The dog is sitting with you. It's called Tethering and if I'm not mistaken, it's so old school it's in the monks of new skete books by that name.
