Going to Place and Stay

I have been trying to get the beast Hexe obedience trained. She is such an enthusiastic student, picks everything up so quickly, however the 'stay' command needs work. Her attention span while in 'stay' mode is short and she is anxious to do something a little more exciting. To combat this I have been working her on the 'place' command, basically performing a sit/down stay on an object...stools, grooming box, mat, and this time a chair. This method has helped to stop her from creeping towards me during the stay. Occasionally we add distractions :-)

The Happy Schnauzer roll

Hexe has a different method of dealing with pent up energy

There back...........

Yep the cooped up winter blues are back and Fiddle has taken up her post as chief Squirrel and Bunny watchdog. Nothing in fur escapes her detection. Yesterday a red squirrel with a sense of humor spent a good 45 minutes grooming himself in the branches above the window. I am sure he is aware of the stress he caused poor Fiddle.

My what BIG teeth you have!

Token and Humphrey playing, check out what big scary teeth little Token has. Humphrey is such a sweetheart with small dogs or pups, he always adjusts his play to suit and if they are intimidated he will lie on the floor and roll over to entice them to come and play with him.
