Miley is a golden retriever.
Golden retrievers are magnets for mud and dirt.
And they sort of help the process when they dive into deep mud puddles to cool off.
So very often Miley comes home looking like a Siamese cat rather than a golden retriever.
With muddy paws, she can’t come in at all.
But without a command, she goes to the water hose as soon a we return from a long excursion.
And she lets me hose her off:
There was no coercion involved in getting her to do this behavior.
She just learned that she couldn’t come inside until she got hosed off, and after just a few repetitions of being left outside for a bit, she learned that if she wanted in, she had to get hosed off.
She will even turn on command so you can get the other side!
