Her own twist on training

This morning I tried a new training experiment with Golly. She'll run outside, do her business, then sit against the fence while everybody else is sniffing, roaming, etc.

It would be fine, but she barks. Not big or hysterical barking, just a single "bupp" at regular intervals - about every 15 seconds or so. Not incredibly irritating, but annoying over a period of time.

So I stood next to her and tapped the top of her head, gently, every time she "bupp"ed. And after about three repetitions, did she stop "bupping?" No. She learned to bupp and duck.
