Here is two vids of tonights fun. I have to wait for 13 year old daughter to send me the other links. I wont hold my breath! Todd is more reliable
So sorry for the delay, computer or rather our ISP has been playing up big time.Wow! Mary That's is so helpful. It is going to take me a while to get through it all but WOW! You have definitely given me some food for thought When I say I take Todd for a 50 min walk, he is not walking all the time HONEST! Lol! I usually walk to a friends home, stopping every 10 mins or so for a rest. And the same on the return walk.
I am loving the idea of home made agility course. My 13 year old daughter will be so helpful (and it will give her some quality time with Todd too)
I am hoping to get some information from the Vet tomorrow re Puppy Classes in our area. I am definitely going to sign up for that.
I introduced a clicker yesterday. Todd seems to be taking to it. He has learnt to retrieve a ball now - I will upload a video of his tricks to date this evening when my daughter gets in. Then, hopefully you and Running Dog can let me know if I am doing it right - or not. One question is when Todd has learnt a trick do I still need to give him a treat EVERY time he does it or can I only treat every now and again? I don't want to confuse him. Oops another question - Todd has starting catching hold of my hand, with his teeth, whenever we are playing. I appreciate he is only a puppy and puppies tend to chew when excited but it HURTS!! Please can you advise me on a way to stop this? I usually let out a yell, fold my arms and turn away from him. This does calm him down - until the next time I get on the floor with him.
Please Mary post some pics of your little girls
Ooops for some reason I'm getting "private" the video will not play for meHere is two vids of tonights fun. I have to wait for 13 year old daughter to send me the other links. I wont hold my breath! Todd is more reliable
Yes it is a shame. I'm sure Todd and Blossom would become best buddies, with big sister Leaf watching over them.Hi Mary. Aww its a shame we didn't live closer. maybe Blossom and Todd could have become best buddies - or sworn enemies lol! Leaf and Blossom are cute girls, with cute names too
I don't think the experience with the Red Setter had any long lasting consequences - we met a large, playful one year old today and Todd stood his ground against him (Well some of the time!) I didn't know what breed he is so I just looked him up and he is a Komondor. Big, sloppy giant he is
Todd doesn't bark outside. He only barks when my daughter comes in from school. She plays with him but he wants more and more and wont let up until she gives in. He just gets over excited to see her and thinks its playtime all the time she is around.
Yes we are very lucky as we have lots of parks and woodland (and Beaches) in our area. Blossom sounds as if she is doing well too. The toppling over backwards at "Beg" or "sit pretty" is funny though isn't it? When you say "drop" is that how I would refer to as "lie down"?
I think Todd is getting the message that I wont play with him when he mouths - but that doesn't stop him from having a sneaky nibble!
I have just uploaded some pics from my phone onto the "Lets make a video" posts. I hope they have uploaded. I am useless trying to work my phone. Todd has grown very quickly in two weeks and has filled out - But his tail looks like a rat's tail now, compared to the rest of him. I am hoping he will get some feathers on it soon to make it a bit more impressive lol!
Looking forward to puppy classes tomorrow and will let you know how it went. I only hope Todd behaves himself with all the other puppies around to play with
