LOL!

I meant to say also that I loved the photos! A dog never seems happier than when it's belly-high in mud, does it?

hehehe....

I guess you can say work, lol. Took over an hour to give her a bath when we got home, lol. And we still didn't get it all out, but I would say we got it almost all out, lol.

I've been out of town and had no access to computer. When I came back there was a wonderful surprise - a rich update of Betty's adventures! I just loved the pictures. But the stories are great too. Betty develops so fast due to clever training (unlike some lazy Dals ), she is also a very lucky dog indeed!

I will definitely try the exercise with the whip, only I will use a fishing rod or just a long stick. And I will tie something tasty to the tip, I do doubt that my Dal girl will be obsessed about a plastic bag. Unless there' a juicy treat in there of course.

I didn't quite get the exercise with a treat - where does the head turns when you should click or say yes? Is it on the way back after the dog eats the snack? Or just as the dog turns towards the snack? - Could be the latter . Some dogs are much smarter than me, Betty - for sure!

For the exercise, when you throw the treat out, the dog will go after it. Then, before he goes to the treat, you call his name. As soon as he turns his head back to look at you, you click or say yes. You eventually want him to turn before he gets the treat, then reward him by letting him get the treat afterwards. At first he'll probably get the treat, then look. That is ok. But work towards getting him to turn before getting to the treat.

The object to this exercise is to get him to always respond to you, no matter what. It's like a very important recall, but you are just wanting him to immediately turn to you for the next command.

That's a good exercise, but only we teach her not to take anything from the ground.

These are fine pics. It's a nice way to use the couch.

Well, I have an almost new kennel being delivered tonight. Betty's going to like it. And she'll have room to run while I'm at work. It's a 6'x12'x6'. Just need to make some kind of top for it so she can't get out, as she's been known to jump that high with no problems, lol. I'm also getting horse stall matting to put down under it so she can't dig out. A friend uses it and said it's much better on the dogs joints than putting the kennel on concrete. It's a kennel that uses the panels, and not the long stretch of chain-link fencing. Can't wait, should be here by 7:30. :D
