Hi - I have 2 kids: 4 and 1 and a pack of 3 GS. My GS are pretty obedient and well trained, but like any pack - can use some additional improvement and training of course!
Due to the cold weather these days, my pack has been preferring the warm indoors to the cold wet outdoors lately. I try to corral them in one area of the house, but am not always successful. Especially as we are cooking and eating, the dogs tend to want to get closer to us.
Therefore I always have to send them back to their dog approved areas (for the safety of the kids and our food's safety too)!).
My 1 year old has picked up on my orders, and is seeing greater success in his commands. He can't articulate a real word, but every time a dog moves, he points at them and says something only he and the dogs understand. Where it takes me several commands to get the dogs back where they belong, the dogs instantly obey my little one, get up and go back to their rug.
It is unbelievable and very cute to watch. My 130 lbs GS bossed around by a 20 pound baby.....it is hillarious, and extremely handy!!
I would love to hear from other people who have the same (or not) experience!
