I am still weighing up whether I should advertise for another human.

Now I am older and more set in my ways, it might be difficult to adjust to the habits of a new human. Would I have the energy for the intensive and prolonged training needed? It has taken years to get Lynettea to recognize and obey a few simple commands and her massaging skills could still be improved. She usually stops massaging me far too soon and I have to prod her with my paw to get her to start again.

What a worrying time this is for me! Should I put up with the ancient and imperfect retainer or risk the attentions of a novice? Perhaps I will give her another chance.

I think I would stay with your human and try and retrain...

It might be difficult to find a new trainee, so we think you should just keep the old. We've heard it can sometimes take years for beans to learn anything.

The training is so exhausting....and they retain so little. We think you are ahead of the game, as you already have this one at least a little trained. But if you have the energy, give another one a try.
