Trust

I had a conversation with a friend of mine tonight about training your dog. When we got Emma, Darryl and I took classes to train our dog, because we had no idea. We didn't know about kenneling your dog or giving them treats right away. We learned so much. Although it has taken lots of work we really trust that dog... here's an example.

Last night we had stew for dinner and Nathan had a peice of the steak in his hand. We were trying to teach him how to give it to Emma. So he put his hand down beside his highchair and Emma licked his fingers which made him laugh. Then he opened his fingers and Emma took the meat from his hand. So yeah we trust our dog.


Till Tomorrow

that's so good.

But always remember that if animals feel frightened or in danger they will behave different than usually

Emma is such a good girl. So different from my two little hellion wiener dogs. I'm looking forward to seeing her again and I'll be interested to see what she thinks of Ian. I know she doesn't like men but I've never met a dog that doesn't love Ian so I'm curious to see how it turns out.
