Clarice And The Doggie Casino


Recommended Posts

Clarice tried the doggie casino today for the first time. This was the first time I filled all of the drawers. I worked with her twice on a couple of drawers and she picked up on what to do right away! :) Smart cookie!

 

I still need to teach her about the bone-shaped "locks" that go in the top that you need to remove before the drawer will open, but, I figure that's for another day. I'm really proud of how quickly she figured it out (I had a feeling she would pick it up quickly, but not THIS quickly).

I wish we had a nosework class around here in our area - I think she would do really well with it...she's got a really good sniffer ;)

Wow, where did you get it?

I bought it several years ago on Amazon. It's a Nina Ottoson puzzle.

I'll admit I was pretty bad with praising her at the right time during the video...she kept backing into my mom, who was attempting to fix the arm of my couch that SOMEONE (Ozzie) decided might be a stuffed toy the other day.

"Now how do we get to that ... " :lol What a smart girl!

 

How do you keep your other animals away while she is working on her treat bonanza? I didn't hear any indignant howling in the background.

My iggies were snuggled away snoozing in their bedtime kennel in my bedroom - Mom and I were moving some things around and I didn't want them to be underfoot.

 

Ozzie was laying on the couch, uninterested. He did, however, "help" me load the casino :lol

 

When Clarice and I work on obedience, Ozzie has to be gated in the hallway because he will be looking for treats. Clarice gets gated in the hall while I work on things with Ozzie.

 

Clarice seems to understand plain English even though there are a ton of things I'll say to her that we've NEVER actually trained. She just seems to know what I mean. For instance, when she's being a bit hyper and "handsy" (pouncing on me when she wants me to get up in the morning), all I do is tell her to "cool it" and she will sphynx on the bed and wait for me to get up. I've never taught her any cues or anything, she just seems to know.

 

She's very special (in more ways than one! :lol )

She and I need to take and graduate from intermediate obedience so she can take her CGC test and become a therapy dog at the hospital, and so she can try agility. She's fearless with her body. She will jump, climb, tunnel...I think it would be a good activity for us.
