(or, if that doesn't work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ed-JfzrvZl8 )
Here's Ferguson practicing alone training for about 5 minutes. We've been practicing frequently and will continue to do so to help him get more comfortable. Nothing really happens in the video, though the power did go out, so you see his ears perk up and look a little confused for a moment. He just lays there and pants, but recently I've had a difficult time figuring out if he's stress panting or if he's really truly hot...actually, pretty sure I'm driving myself insane with the concept. I guess we'll figure it out in the winter when our room becomes freezing. *sighs*
In any case, this video is 2 days shy of 2 weeks being on fluoxetine. I've not seen any dramatic changes yet more than what I would assume if we were relying only on behavior modification, but we're just half-way before it reaches full effect. Not expecting any miracles, but if it IS stress panting, even that lessening would be great.
As for work, yes, he likes Svara just as much as Lily, so we're set there. I'm hoping this madness of coordinating schedules will end by the time November comes around...
