affection question

Is it possible to train Allie to lick my face without knocking my glasses off?

My furs are not in storage, nor draped across the bed. They're peering out the kennel door just waiting to be fed.

I take it you want to train her to give a "kiss". When she starts, turn your head slightly away from her, at the same time touch with your finger where you want her to "kiss", like on your chin or your neck. Say "give kiss here" or whatever words you want to use and praise her.

yes, I don't wear glasses but I wanted to train my boy to gently give kisses....I used kiss and gentle as the commands thru training and he was taught to give kisses by my chin....just takes time and patience and of course some goodies....make sure you let her clearly know where, using your finger as mentioned above......I did get a few "over zealous" kisses that nearly sent me flying, but he learned soon enough.....good luck

I don't particularly mind the overzealous kisses, I'm just tired of getting my glasses slobbered on.

I am sorry Jelpy but I had to chuckle! I take my glasses off when I get ready for our down time at night so they can't slurp them up or knock them off.
