Default Didgie the Sorta Kinda Maybe Dock Diver

So she doesn't have Zinga's natural love of retrieving and water. Tug is her thing. But she had her first real dock experience yesterday and was willing to jump off (kinda) so I'm gonna call it a win!



So, the way I get Didgie into retrieving is I throw the toy and I race her to it and try to get it before she does. If she gets it first she brings it to me (well, kinda) and we tug which is what she wants. So this means the first time I threw it off the dock I had to jump in and run to the toy. That's what inspired her to go "Wait a minute. That's MY TOY!" and jump off the dock.

We both went home wet.

She was driving me insane. This was a public residential park. With a baseball field, tennis courts and a playground. Where she is not supposed to be off leash. There weren't really people there but her screaming was not helping us stay on the down low.

And that video was about the quietest she ever was there unless she had the toy in her face.

We have twins. The wailing, the I-will-get-the-toy-just-so-you-can't-have-it, the dropping it half way out of the water and the tug drive with minimal retrieve drive LOL If they retrieve, they get to tug - come on! haha

Didgie has obedience though and can hold a sit and a down. Angry Kelpie does NOT hold positions without barking or leaping! Does not!

ETA: My perception of "loud" is soooo skewed now. I actually thought, "wow, she's pretty quiet" LOL Compared to 6 screaming, nipping, barking, spinning herding idiots...or even just one hahahaha

The video is the most adorable thing I've ever seen. Her and Zuma are in the same spot with their dock diving! I figure a couple more trips and Zuma will be rocking it too.
