Smarter Than The Average Dog

27 Apr

I thought I might be smarter than the average dog, and maybe I am. This morning when I fed the dogs I hooked their short leashes I made for them and it worked perfectly. They both made 2 lunges when they started eating, then they quickly realized it would do no good so they just settled down and ate their own food.



I know I will have to keep doing this for a while but hopefully someday it will no longer be necessary. And as requested, more kitten pictures.







After they eat, if I don’t pick them up they just climb up my leg like they are climbing a tree. They will climb all the way up to my shoulder and just lay there. Kittens are just too cute for words.

    be sure to feed your dogs and let them use the same bowls…put their name on the bowls if you have to. my two sharpeis were like that at first, but now they will eat from their own bowls but standing right next to each other..the thing is they know whose bowl belongs to whom…and they have learned to respect each other and not nose around the others bowl without permission. also, cesar melan of national geographic fame with dogs suggests that you mix their food with your hands and get your scent mixed in…it has something to do with them learning what their mother should have taught them . how are they with rawhide or other treats…my dogs are working companions and when they bark at a strange car in the driveway, they expect to be rewarded for a good job…reward your dogs for good behaviour as part of their training-lol, just dont give them too many treats or they may turn their nose up at feeding time.

      Good ideas, I’ll make sure they each have their own bowl. I have been doing this for only 3 days and I can already see a difference in their behavior. They know when I put the tether on them food is coming. They also know they can’t get to the other bowl so they don’t bother to try now. I’ll keep doing this for 2 weeks and then I might try without the tether being attached and see what happens.
