Just wait until you wake up in the middle of the night with her face inches from yours, just staring...

In my version, then she pukes in your face. (seriously happened)

This is how you know you've entered CrazyTown: when you see a child's rocking chair on the curb to be thrown away with the other trash, and you think "I bet that would be fun to use in dog tricks" and nab it.

So far, the plan is to attach a string or rope to the chair, teach Astro to tug it to start it rocking, teach him to hop up onto it and sit up on it, then combine them into starting the rocking and then hopping up. Who knows if that will actually work, but at the very least the chair is the perfect size for reaching him confidence in hopping up onto things, balancing, and sitting pretty.

I love working with my little herder boy. We are really enjoying obedience work. Hoping to debut early next year!

Gambit stares. Its not a tender loving stare either. It more of a 'put your dead body in a rocking chair and run around in your underwear' kind of look. After three years I've just about gotten used to it

Having a Malinois puppy and a horrible stomach flu is a bad combination. She put up with one day like a champ, but day 2 is getting to be a bit much for her patience.

This has actually already happened. I had to suppress my scream. She was just sitting there..staring at my face. And then when I opened my eyes she was like OH YAY YOU CAME BACK TO LIFE.

Also, tried to let Feist out to pee last night because I knew she had to, and she would not go out, which is weird because she loooves the backyard. Whatever, fine. Opened the door to let her out half an hour later and heard creepy coyote/wolf scream noises really close by. Uhhh ok that explains it.

(We have coyote/wolf mixes that live on the golf course down the street from my house.)

I left Auggie and Pepper at home when I took Baby P to agility and my dad said he let Auggie stay out of his crate at night and sleep in the living room with him (dad sleeps in the recliner because of his acid reflux and the ulcer.) The second night I was talking to him on the phone and asked how Auggie was. He said he's a pretty good boy but he woke up that morning and Auggie had jumped up in the recliner "and he was just standing there. He wasn't barking... he was just staring. It's kind of creepy."

Yes, yes it is. At least it's not just me LOL.


Payton is not a creepy stare-r, Payton jumps up in the bed and is just all out like YAAAAAAAY SNUGGLE *throws body against yours*

I remember being weirded out by Quinn's staring when I got her. Even as a puppy she had no problem maintaining eye contact. On the drive home, she barely slept - she just sat on my lap, calmly staring into my eyes.

I love it now! And teaching her to watch me was a breeze. But I remember being slightly weirded out, but impressed at the same time.

It also doesn't help Hannah isn't doing well either and her time is really coming up fast.

I hate dogs.

But I need to get them used to doing that so I think my face my be burning for a few days while teaching.

But that's awesome that they were such good demo dogs!
Yeah I may borrow a Manners Minder from work... Jari is usually really great (he's been watching classes from a crate since he was 8 weeks old and I've used him for demo work pretty much since then, too LOL), but I think it was because I didn't work him AT ALL beforehand. Usually I do training with them before I teach and I just didn't make it to the building in time for that.

Kimma is awesome if I just let her on her mat the whole time (a la Control Unleashed) but I think that makes people nervous since I have to just drop the leash and leave her there as I walk around and help people. Even though she will stay on that thing the whole time. With my more advanced classes I will do this since they know me and my dogs a bit by then, but not a beginner/puppy class. I tried her in an ex-pen with the mat, and apparently that made everything different and scary and full of anxiety. Her anxiety has been through the roof the past couple of months anyway. I should have known better than to try something new with her. They really are great demo dogs and could care less about everyone while I'm using them. Last week was just an anomaly.
