Check out our new merch today!
“Ok, so Will set up the camera over there. Penny, I’m pretty sure somethings up.”
When multiple cameras come out, the pups know we’re going to work
I put both dogs in a “stay” command on the couch. The little rule-benders obeyed, but were ready to pounce when the action started
One of the games involved maintaining eye contact. Eko was steady as a rock from the get go
Penny was a bit more suspicious…
But came around when she saw I was holding a treat
I tested the pups separately. Penny remained fascinated with the games even when it wasn’t her turn
I normally keep training sessions short and sweet but I guess I got caught up with the games. Eko, after following instructions beautifully, finally decided he was done testing. He informed me in his usual subtle manner.
“Now you listen to me. Be quiet and scratch my butt.”
I took the hint and gave the pups a long break before finishing up later in the afternoon. The tests were easy and fun and helped me learn a few fun insights about my pup.
Check back tomorrow to see video of the pupils in action!
such good pics of them – you are really good at taking pictures of Eko and Penny – i get about 1 our of 4 that is ok – the other 3 are the blurs of them moving and usually several butt shots – might be because stay to Muffin means move it now she is coming my way for something i do not like (ear cleaning, medicine ect.)
Eko… that was a good statement :o) it’s amazing how different and how similar they are at the same time… :o) canine magic, I bet :o)
Kali is difficult. Getting a good picture of a black dog with black eyes and nose is very tough.
Great faces…Jack is very expressive too. Can’t wait to see the vids tomorrow.
Always love your videos, can’t wait for tomorrow! Some really cute shots you got today.
wonderful portraits and great idea! Dakota is super good about maintaining eye contact (when a treat is involved lol)
Ha! Eye contact makes me laugh. I can maintain eye contact for about 4 seconds, then my mind wanders and my eyes glaze over and I stare at the air over Mom’s head till she says, “Ugh. Forget it.”
Love and licks,
sounds really interesting and Eko and Penny are so good with the camera. Ziggy doesn’t mind – in fact he plays to the camera but Nico gives you that “get that thing out of my face look” – especially for his Dad.
Such expressive faces – and eyes – oh those eyes!!!!!
Deep and content in thought 🙂
Love that expression ‘the little rule benders.’ Ha! I noticed ‘someone’ had been upholstering (or is it de-polstering?) . That Penny girl, she was probably a designer in a previous life. 😉
the pictures were great so I can’t wait to see the video.
