Things have been difficult here for the past few days, we lost some one dear to our family. Lad has been sticking close, bringing me toys and keeping me company. It has been hard for me to focus so training has gone from serious to silly tricks to make me smile. Lad enjoys shutting doors, weaving between my legs, shaking hands, and he has now perfected his bow (“applause”) which he does when I bow to him. This never fails to make me smile.
Sometimes we take a break from serious training to do something fun. What could be more fun than playing with a box? How about playing with paw pods? Over the past two weeks we have been working on more body conditioning and awareness with “100 things to do with a box,” more back up training and paw pods.
