Train your dog

We is entering Niamh’s train your dog competition, in partnership with Mango Minster. We could only enter one piccure, so here our left overs that didn’t make it.

As I sure you all know trainings be one of my most favouritist things to do and so it beed important for us to enter. I loves doing stuff with Mum, doing learnings, getting treats, but most importantly seeing Mum happy and fun when I get something right. She says the same, only she doesn’t get treats. She could have some of mine, I would let her. We is missing out on going to school lately, what with all the snow and now the car be broke we has not beed for quite a few weeks! I miss it! This first piccure be the one I has entered. It pretty simple, but heeling good be a hard thing for me, cos I like to do busy fast things, but we has worked hard. At first I learned heel by using the ‘touch’ command. Efurry time I touched Mum’s hand with my nose I got a click and a treat. Then when I could follow the hand we worked on getting me to follow it walking along. Using ‘variable rewards.’ Sometimes I get 1 treat after 1 step of heeling, then after 5, then I’ll get 3 treats after 2 steps then next time I get to play tuggy after 15 steps. I be very good at heeling now, I can do it on both sides and I can even do it when we walk past some childrens on the beach. (Mum doesn’t like me to scare them, cos they scare me and I want to do barkings at them.) That makes Mum feel very proud that I can ignore something scary to still do heelings. Sometimes I heel all by myself when Mum not looking and that make her proud too!

I has lots more to post about, I got my prizes through from Johann, my friend Sally be here, Mum looking after her while her pawrents on hol-ee-day and I got my file through from Coryelle the animal communicator so I will post about that too!

But for now I just has to do a quick post cos Mum ‘busy’. It Grandma’s birthday today. Happy Birthday Grandma! Tomorrow it Mum’s birthday. She gonna be 25. She looks pretty stupid in the photos cos she has had her hair done up in curlies for her party night out. Another thing I doesn’t get to go to!

pee ess: If you would like to see what grandma got for her birthday, you can go to Mum’s other blog.

  15. Hello Ludo!Good luck with the contest. We were so excited to be part of the Mango Minster 2010 but mommy here had so much things to do at W-O-R-K that we missed sending our photos. Nevertheless, we still enjoy checking out entries and seeing great friends join the different categories.You sure got training talent!-Scrappy, Bullet & the Piappies

  16. Good doggie, great training. I bet you will be winner of the contest for sure!I am sorry for being so late in thanking you for stopping by for my birthday. We have been having so many blogger problems that it has slowed down my visits as the mom was ready to kill the computer, just because that was the only thing she could think of doing. I wouldn't let her. Finally the blogger monster seems to be gone for now, probably picking on another innocent one. Hope you had a fun time at my first birthday party. It was great seeing you there.

  17. Oh Ludo – I love all your photos! I don't know how you selected one for the contest! But I agree with you – Heeling looks easy but it is one of the hardest things to do. My human also makes me Heel past distractions and ignore things – she says it is very useful! I think it is wonderful all the "learnings" you do with your human – my human feels the same way like yours does – it makes her happy to be spending time with me, teaching me things and feeling very proud of me! :-)Slobbers,Honey the Great Daneps. how could you say that about your Mum's hair?? We thought she looked like a beautiful, glamorous, gypsy!
