Scarlet and I are like that.
I rarely give “commands”, but instead talk to her in sentences. For example the other day, I needed to go out the back door which is behind the couch. Scarlet went ahead of me, and of course was in my way. I said “look missy, you need to back it up right now, because you are in my way”. She flew backwards out of the space, like someone had shot her out of a cannon. Scarlet can also be picky sometimes about eating. She’ll have a little bit, and then get distracted. The other day I said “that cat is going to eat your food if you don’t knock it off”. She whipped around and dove on her bowl, as the cat was watching from across the room. The cat got a really dirty look. I basically just talk to her like a kid, lol.
