Tyler's Good and Bad Days at Doggy Training!

Tyler was READY for school last week
   It's such a pleasure when your kids do well at school - whether human or canine. This is another short 10 second video of
our 5 year old Dachshund Tyler in pre-agility school on April 1. He did a great job, and I really have to think when I'm directing him. Being a smaller dog he actually watches the direction of my feet more than my hands (larger dogs will watch your arms and hands).
NOT INTO CLASS LAST WEEK -   In the previous class, Tyler was defiant and basically told me he didn't want to be in school. Instead of running through the tunnels he ran around them, jumped on TOP of them and stood there staring at me as if to say "I am just in no mood for this." He did that through the entire hour of the previous week.
BACK ON TOP IN CLASS -   This past week though, on Wed. April 1st, he was back into it and had a lot of fun, as this short video clip shows.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
