Isn't capturing behaviors fun? It gets addictive.
Nah, it's not bad...and it can come in handy if you can get that behavior on cue, so you'll have better control of it in the future.
I try and capture all sorts of noises from my guys...Ripley and Sawyer can "growl" on cue. I used to use Rip's growl in therapy work...I'd tell the kids to be really quiet because Rip was going to be "Scary"...and then I'd get him to growl (a very silly play growl)...then he'd roll over. Being that he is all fluffy and cute, it made the kids laugh...and I'd say, "Rip wants to know if you were really, really scared of him?" They'd laugh, and Rip would roll around being silly.
But yeah, I like capturing behaviors that they offer me...no matter if it's often considered a "nuisance" behavior...I like to have control of that behavior!
