    OK, day two update. I guess this might not take as long as I thought.  Tonight Senna did a non-prompted sit alert on the 12th attempt. The rest of the session was hit or miss with him also sit alerting on attempts 16,20,23,24,25,26 and finally again on the 33rd attempt.  At that point I stopped the session in favor of obedience so we could end it on a high note. Interesting to see that we seem to be in a transitory phase where he’s starting to understand what I’m asking him to do but he’s not confident about it yet so he’s cautious and defaults to his previous training when he’s unsure. I was unable to get any successful attempts on video yet.
