Though I hate admitting it, sometimes I'm not so clever. I know, hard to believe.
Inara and I have been working on "watch" for eye contact and "relax" for sprawling on her side. I was having trouble getting more than a couple seconds duration for both. Then I had the BRILLIANT idea to use a bridge - gooood girl, gooooood dog, just very calmly while she's doing both. Amazingly enough, her duration drastically improved. *sigh* It blows my mind how dense I can be sometimes!
