Hello from Smeagol and me!

Smeagol is a mini rat terrorist and is a bit quicker than I am. I knew I had to do something to keep this dog positively focused and OUT OF TROUBLE. I taught him a few easy tricks, but he learns quickly and becomes bored quickly. I found your site, and watched a couple of your short flicks. Wow. Looked easy. Smeagol picked the new tricks up immediately, and now I'm back for more. I can look at the steps in the flicks and translate them easily. So, I'm hooked and grateful that I found a straight forward method online. Smeagol too!--luckies

Welcome aboard! Have you checked out the monthly challenges? Each month we train our dogs and compete (for fun) and submit videos. This month there was Look at me/Shy/Put your toys away. Maybe you can check out next month's challenges! :)


Welcome to the DTA. It's definitely the place to learn how to challenge a bored dog. I like your dogs name. I take it you're a Tolkein fan:dogtongue2:
