We've been practicing a few things this week- mainly "sit" and "down". Ricky can do both pretty much every time I give him the hand signal. Lucy can do it when she feels like it, but she gets more easily distracted so it may take her a little longer.
|Lucy's eager to learn...and chase butterflies, eat plants, dig in the dirt, crawl around under the table, roll on her belly, etc.|
|Ricky gets tons of kibbles and kisses for being such a good boy. Notice the red on his paw...that's my lipstick!|
It's so fun! I've never really wanted to train a dog before. But after meeting Jasper, and seeing all the cool tricks he can do, I'm feeling really inspired. His owner, Ashley, is giving me lots of tips with my puppies. And what I love most about it, it's all positive and fun!
|Jasper's showing Ricky and Lucy the ropes on how to be great citizens.|
In a few months, I expect we'll be doing a dance routine similar to this one I'm posting below.
