My Doberman, Dancer (gone now), licks her way thru an ice block to get to her prize: Her precious Kong, filled with yummy peanut butter!
I always made these treats for my girls in summer.
Want to make it for your dog? Simple!
Get a plastic container and put a couple inches of water in it. Freeze it. Then place the Kong (with PB of course!) into the container, on top of the ice, and fill the container with enough water to cover the Kong by a couple of inches.
When ready, just pop the ice block out of the container and make Doggie happy!
"Get Out" and "Go Around?"
Yes... "Go Around!"
Want to have some REAL FUN with your dog?
Fun that will impress everyone watching? Have you ever seen another pet dog who can do this? You and your kid will be unique and admired.
Go some place where your dog has plenty of room to run, and with at least one tree. (Two or three trees are even better.)
Stand with your dog far away from the tree and motion with your hand to signal him to "Get out!" toward the tree. (This is agility training stuff.)
When he gets close, order him to "Go around!"
He'll whip around the tree and come running back to you.
(I used to send my Doberman, Jetta, around trees, cars, people and even tennis courts and houses.)
Another fun thing: Stand with him in the middle of two trees, and direct him "out" toward one tree, then "around." As he heads back to you, turn and send him around the other tree. When he comes back, turn and send him to the first tree again. Keep going around and around each tree... Figure 8!!!
Really fun and impressive!
And a great way to exercise him!
Need some help teaching this to your dog? I can teach it to you in a really short lesson. And remember... in case you don't live near me, I can teach it to you on the phone! I MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE it!
The woman was ANGRY, yelling at me as my Doberman, Jetta, and I flew past her in the park.
Huh?, I thought? What's cruel?
Jetta was doing what she LOVED: pulling me on a dog (sport) scooter. LOVED IT!!!
"Jetta, turn!" I commanded.
Jetta slowed down, then circled back. We approached the woman and I told Jetta, "Whoa!"
"What's cruel?" I asked.
"You! Making your dog pull you like that!"
