Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?

Henry has an appointment with the evaluator at our training center for his DMWYD Novice Trick Dog test on Sunday. Wish us luck!

I'm rather tickled at the idea of my 12 yr old retired research beagle being a certified trick dog LOL

Re: Old dog, two story house

I've never heard of a daylight ranch. Is that what I would call a bi-level? Or is it like a "daylight lot" where you can have both the front door at street level, but the lot slopes so that the basement can be ground level in the back? The house I rented before I bought this was what I call a bileve...

Woo hoo! We're getting started. I'm going to work through the protocol that Amanda linked to in another thread, with some modifications.

Re: GoFundMe site for Peekaboo

Have you looked at YouCaring? They don't take any of the money, or they didn't a few years ago when I used them. They aren't as well known as GoFundMe, and IIRC it was a little tricky to use paypal with them, but they don't take a cut of the money.

Other than that, I think the write up is great

Oh the smell!!!

I've always commented that I'm so lucky to have a dog that never has gas. Well, all of that has changed in the past couple of weeks. Henry is now farting regularly and the smell will clear the room. I honestly thought I had a sewer line break at one point, because I couldn't think of what else could...

Re: Got Stay? May 2018 Training Challenge

Henry needs to work on duration. He "forgets" that he's working, or comes to remind me "hey lady! I'm doing good work over here, are you noticing?" We should be able to get 1 minute, but I'd really like 3 or 5 minutes. Stretch goals!

Re: Why do I hate trialing my dogs so much?

it's also a money-making scam by the AKC. That's almost an oxymoron. Pretty much everything the AKC does is a moneymaking scheme. They're registering puppy mill dogs to fill their coffers; I think that pretty much says it all. Henry could pass the AKC trick dog test but we'll wait for the DMWYD one...

Count me in too! Henry knows lots of things but most of them we don't practice often enough for them to be rock solid. He really need a long stay, as well as a stay when he can't see me. He'll stay, until his little beagle brain turns off and he forgets that he's actually working (or when his little...

Re: Would you ever muzzle a dog for behavioral reasons?

I think muzzles get a bad rap. They're useful tools if used responsibly. As you say, if that's all it takes for a dog to be able to safely enjoy an activity he likes, then it seems like a no brainer to me. If other people question it, that's just an opportunity to educate.

Re: Tylee's Dog Food?

Henry had VILE gas on it for the first couple of weeks. It settled down, but wow, it was nasty for awhile! Ultimately, I didn't find it to be as good a value as THK, especially since I prefer to add fresh protein pretty regularly, and I don't want to sacrifice that much freezer space, but it seemed ...
