My Floor Is A Dog Toy Minefield

Can you guess what this is a photo of?

If you guessed “Eko with all his stuff packed neatly away” you would be right, but if you guessed “wishful thinking” you would be even more right!

Eko doesn’t have a lot of toys and bones, but I swear it is like he strategically places them on the floor exactly where he knows I’m going to walk.  It’s especially bad in the mornings when I’m not fully awake.

I have been wobbled by the wobbler

Slipped on a stuffy

Introduced the bones in my feet to the bones (and antler) on the floor

And Eko’s tennis ball has sent me rolling over myself

The master of disaster with the tools of his trade

I do my best to keep Eko’s toys organized, but they never stay in one place for long. And of course as soon as I put the toys away it just happens to be the exact moment Eko wants to take them all out and play.

It only occurred to me recently that I might be able to save myself some time (and twisted ankles) if I taught Eko the “clean up” command I have seen other dogs learn. I’m off to start on some research, but does anyone have experience teaching their dog to put toys away?  I would love to hear any suggestions and recommendations.  Thanks!

I’ve tried to teach Chloe to put her toys away but she always talks back & jumps up on the couch, ignoring me. Then I put them away. I’m well trained.

I have in fact not mastered this yet. Petals has a dozen toys all over the house. I did she this fabulous dog just the other day. His trainer Heather must be a mad genius because Jesse is so clever (& cute). Check it out

Will Eko has already impressed up all but if you want to see Jesse put away toys, watch his next video. BTW, that music is by a guy named Josh Woodward. He offers his whole music catalogue for free to use on your videos or web sites or movies or commercials, you just have to credit him in your project. Pretty cool hey?
