I've noticed something interesting about Sam - she can be easily shamed when she's done something 'wrong'. For instance - yesterday she and the girls were running around in the yard (she was on a lead) and Taylor forgot and ran too close to Sam. Sam of course in her hyper frenzy jumped Taylor and clawed her. Before I said anything to her she immediatly fell down on her belly and started squirming and looking 'sorry'. Today she got in the garbage while she was outside (I forgot it was within her reach) and when I saw her happily munching away she got a panicked look on her face and when I said "SAM, NO" (in a tone of voice that conveyed dissapointment, not yelling) she immediatly got quiet and went staright to bed when we got inside. Just curious if this is paticularly common among this breed or is just a 'dog' thing in general and depends on temperment. Does anyone else use 'shame' (for lack of better word) and is it adviable or effective?
