It's been a long time coming, but Rocks actually has learned to sit! She had no training when we got her, but was a very good dog. She didn't jump up, she didn't try to take off, our only complaints: the barking and not sitting.
The barking has been semi-solved with a bark collar at nights. This was after our neighbor called to say she was being woke up 3 to 4 times a night. The collar works well, until Sampson takes it off of her. He's not as dumb as we thought.
Sitting has happened twice this week, and last night she sat before Sampson while waiting for her treat. She didn't try to take it out of my hand either. She sat, and ate it. This was met with a round of baby talk by me. "Goooood girl Rocks, yes you are a good girl, you are a goood girl Rocks." She seemed to love it. Sampson seemed irritated that Rocks got so much attention for doing what he always does. But, I'm happy with the progress!
