In the morning before we head downstairs, we make the pooches wait for us before heading down the stairs. Edison takes this so seriously that he will walk between us and the top landing as if telling us to hurry up because he is hungry. One downstairs, unless directed otherwise, Edison waits (standing up) very closely to his food bowls until after we put down his water dish. Then he will lie down to wait for his food bowl.
We've talked before about Tesla's routines that she has that are borderline obsessive compulsive including her bathroom routine and car routine.
In the morning, Sam is the first one to get out of bed. If he gets up and puts on sweatpants, Edison will continue laying in bed. As soon as Sam puts on his dress pants though, Edison is up and ready to start his day.
What sort of routines have your pooches created for themselves?
