Donna, from the wonderful blog "Gather" commented on my last post with the
Two Square Dogs wearing bunny ears for Easter.
"either you are a dog trainer or the breed is a natural for it"
To answer this I think terriers are very smart and Scotties are the best !
I guess I am a trainer because from day one I train them. I make it fun.
I play with the gud puppies or dogs as soon as we become a family.
I used to get down on the floor (if only today) and play but play time is teaching time also.
the best teaching tool is chkikin' magic chkikin'.
As you know I have been trying to get Oliver and Media use to thehamish.
Chkikin' is the answer.
Oliver is always out and about and is interesting in food.
In the morning I head for the fridge to get thehamish's meds and food + chicken.
Oliver has learned open fridge means chkikin' and he loves chkikin'.
When we walk out from the bedroom in the morning, there is Oliver waiting for us.
He walks in front "leading" us to the kitchen and plants himself in front of the fridge.
So now he get a tiny piece of chkikin' and thehamish gets a small piece.
thehamish is so gud, he just sits there and waits for his chkikin' while Oliver will be almost
taking the chkikin' out of thehamish mouth.
Peace through chkikin' !
Notice thehamish eyes never leave the . . . chkikin'.
Here is your pretty for the start of the week.
