"Hey Daddy-O, this class is cramping my style. Let's make like a tree and leave." "Keep talking. I got a lot of room left in my ears yet."
Mr. Wild Dingo's been working Juno in obedience classes on Saturdays because Juno has a few, well, "issues" with Scott. For one, she's terribly fearful. She never was the first few months we had her. For some reason, she developed it. We think it has a little to do with Loki being possessive of Scott. […]
Last year, I took Juno to beach classes without Loki because she had to do a few special classes for her Therapy Dog certification. When I worked Juno by herself, I had absolutely no obedience problems with her. She did everything perfectly: stayed, came, heeled, sat on picnic tables. She even hurdled over BBQ stands on command.

Even for low drive dogs, like the Husky. Loki? He'll do anything just for his marker word and some praise. For a hot dog, […]
Juno attended a Northern Breed dog show this weekend. I have to admit, I'm not into these "poser" dog shows. But it was a "fun-match," meaning, not very official and useful for anyone who is slightly interested in posing, err, I mean, showing their pure-bred dogs. I entered the show because I thought there were […]
