The difficulties of training a Scottish Terrier puppy

Sterling the eight-month-old Scottie reminds me a lot of what my dog Bridget was like at that age. Oh, who am I kidding, Bridget’s still like Sterling.

She doesn’t like to lie down and never has. She hasn’t mastered the art of staying and since she wouldn’t lie down, we never got to play dead.

I wish I had been as persistent as Sterling’s trainer and stuck with it like she’s doing. My life would be a whole lot easier today as my Scottish Terrier approaches her sixth birthday.
