Thanks for the article! I LOVE reading them. They are so helpful. I have been wondering what I should do with Luck on Halloween. I like the idea of having him sitting and the kids treating. I will definitely follow this.

Thanks! Halloween (Howl-o-Ween) is my favorite holiday for training! :) I personally love this exercise.

Thanks for posting this! I am going to try this, and hope for nice cool weather otherwise my husband is gong to be complaining about the door being open and the a/c being on.

I was thinking just the opposite, that clearly the person who wrote this lives in a warm climate! We've been having highs in the mid 40s. I was hoping it would be really warm (like mid-50's, which is optimistic). I'm thinking I'll probably just have to keep the door closed.

I was thinking exactly the same thing... all well and good if you live in Cali, but here on the East Coast.... BRRRRRRRR! I'm excited that Halloween is on a Saturday this year!! Though we won't be able to do the drill as laid out, I'm planning for it to be a long, productive day of training!

Guilty as charged! :curtain: It was 102 here on Friday! BUT, I will add that on years where it's been chilly enough to not want the door open, this still works depending on your doorframe situation. Lots of front doors (w/o screens or storm doors) can support a baby gate and still allow room for the door to open and be completely shut. There's an example of that set up in this segment on managing door-darting behaviors:

Here in Ottawa the trick or treaters often have snow suits on under their costumes! However, I could totally do this here...no gates but great practice for stays! Casey loves Halloween...he thinks everyone is here to see him, of course! I will definitely make him do tricks for treats this year!
