cat-dog roles - a nontraining interlude

this is in response to maylissa and leanne's posts.

i now know what is wrong with my house.
my animals have no roles.
both my cats and dogs will eat anything and everything. just last night, the cats broke into the cabinets and ate through a bag of brown sugar (!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!) and cake decorating icing (!??!?!?!?!?!?!!!!?!??!) while i was asleep. rah still steals paper towels and eats them.

rahs favorite toy is the cat wubba. yes, did you know they make cat sized catnip filled wubbas? rah loves them. adores them. carries them around and destroys them. all of them sleep in bed, walk all over you, have no issue zooming across the couch.

the cats and dogs play bitey face.

none of my animals know their places in life.

worked rah outside at work today - something to be said for not working your dog much for 2 weeks or so on much at all - he heeled like a dream even though we were essentially right next to a highway. great attention. worked fronts, baby retrieves. didnt do drops, since we were on asphalt.

more work to be done tomorrow. hopefully snowstorms that come will not block us out of class this week. im looking at a few rentals this week.

thinking about the show makes me nervous.

LOL ... this is hilarious!!! All because of a "what-am-i-going-to-write-today-it's-monday-my-brain-is-not-working" post :D

On the other hand, a trainer once said to me that sometimes it's good to take a complete break from trainer; because, if the dog enjoys, and doesn't "get it" for a while, when you go back to doing it again it'll pick it up once more with that much more relish and enthusiasm. I've noticed this applies in Dante's case lol

You can do it! You can get your OTCH on your Novice A dog... I just finished my Novice A dog's OTCH this past weekend and it was AMAZING. :-) Hard work and perseverance are the keys. You can do it!
