Thanks! I was there from the day I brought him home until about 2 weeks ago when it was like a light switch clicked on for him.
I would sit on the ground and hold his collar and he would scratch and jump, bite my arm, anything he could to get at the food, but I would not let go of the collar until he sat. Then from Sit it became sit and stay all still holding the collar. One evening I let go of the collar after the stay command and he stayed from about 10 seconds.
The next night he sat and stayed without the collar hold and a couple days after that I don't even have to give commands. He hears the rubbermaid container open and sits by his bowl and won't touch the food until I tell him "OK". I can turn my back to him to walk over and put the scoop away, turn back around and he will be eyeing the food but won't eat until I say "OK".
I really can't wait for this behavior to roll into other aspects of life, all in due time!
