As some of you may know, I am a dogwalker. So every workday I collect a couple of dogs from their home and take them out for a run in the woods. The other day I was taking Jinx, Pippy(a beagle) and Rigo(a terriermix) to the woods. But I didn't feel like going my usual route, since Pippy chased a scent a few days ago. I desided to stay near the car and do some games with them. I use these dogs as a distraction for Jinx, while I train with her. I can't do this with all of my dogs, but these two a happy just to hang around and get treats every once in a while. So I was doing some tricks with Jinx. Bow, jump, back up, spin, jump up on a table, walk over a log and... speak. Pippy came and sat beside Jinx, watching what we were doing. Now I have been teaching Jinx to speak loud and to speak softly. The loud she has down, but the softly needs some work, so when I asked her to speak softly she was quiet for a time. From the corner of my eye I saw Pippy wiggle around a little bit and suddenly a soft woof came out. Yeah!! Good job!! I was laughing about the way she did it. So I thought I would see if she would do it again. So I asked Pippy to speak. For a moment she was thinking(you could see it in her face), again the little wiggle and a soft woof. She did it three times!!! Of course we had a big party!!! This little girl is so cute! Her owners don't do any tricktraining with her, but she did have a little basic obiedience. This is why she is able to go off leash in the woods. Every once in a while she will go off and chase a scent, but she always comes back. Next week, if she comes with me again, I'll see if she remembers it.
