    I have been recently trying this with my dog, but when she has the sticky note on her, she usually just waits for a bit before rolling around to get the note off. What can I do?

    Believe it or not-- even if your dog is stubborn (like mine) she will catch on pretty quickly!

    I have always wanted to teach my dog to salute:)
