    Default Wonít Move

    Kit has always had this issue but it was a easier when she was smaller. She has a tendency of lying in front of doors so you cannot open or close them. She doesn’t get up when you tell her and I am sometimes forced to pick her up and move her. She rarely move out of position unless you have a treat in your hand. Does anyone else have this issue?

    ALL. THE. TIME. This is commonly referred to fuzzy speed bump syndrome at my house. I just slowly and steadily pull the door and he slides across the floor, still refusing to move. Rarely he will get up, but more often than not he just lays there.

    Since I work from home, she doesn’t like it when I don’t give her attention. So she does this just now and won’t move lol Click image for larger version.

    Iíve seen service dogs who perform the door stop task. I feel like Kit naturally excels at this one and is self-taught. Hehe.

    My theory is that...
    1) it's cooler by the doors, especially ones that are doors to the outside
    2) if they are laying by them...nothing & no one will get past them (guarding instinct?)
    3) their way of getting attention!

    I havenít had this particular issue but probably because there are only a few situations in which Commander Fluff will tolerate a closed interior door. He will let me close the door at night when we are all ready to go to sleep, he mostly tolerates when I limit his access to the front bedroom (now ďhisĒ bedroom since I replaced my bed and put my old bed in there), and he will let me close the door to the half bath downstairs. That about sums it up. He will throw a tantrum at every other time that I have the nerve to close an interior door.

    Kind of same story here. Interior doors are seldom closed at our house... yes, that means bathroom door gets bumped open every single day...

    Since itís just me, the half-bath is the only bathroom door I bother to close. I am paranoid about the neighbors getting a show they wonít be able to unsee. With the upstairs bathrooms, thatís not so much of an issue.
