Zen of the Bully Sticks

We have a guest dog for the week... Mr. Skittles and while for the most part everyone is getting along, Spencer wants to play sometimes and thinks barking will make that happen, Skittles doesn't want to and doesn't like being barked at growls and then Sasha feels the need to police the situation.   Bless you people with your 3 plus dogs households.  Three very distinct personalities going on... However... as we enter day three, everyone is feeling some comfortable and settling into a routine...to help that along... out came the bully stitcks to just bring some quiet time and there's nothing like bully sticks to peace and calmness to a house...

They got their prizes and everyone split off to a separate places to get their chew on...


Spencer loves his bully stick...goal...chew it as fast as possible!


Skittles would like some private time during his chew fest


Sasha too, enjoyed her chew in her own personal space as far away from everyone as possible...
Good news is that everyone enjoyed their bully sticks and no one tried to steal anyone's... And then they all had some full tummy and were in good moods...

Playtime!


Spencer has a pretty sit!  He's doing really well and is really starting to get it the whole - sit for treats business!
He also loves himself some playtime with Cassie... He's learning not to be skittish and that we are safe and just wanting to play and it's all good times with us...
 His playing has really started to come up.. .He showing more energy and running around... He is really starting to got playing with toys with you (though he plays by himself too).

Enjoying the Backyard...

More cute pictures from the weekend... We also worked on sit and he's getting so close, he just gets a little crazy for the treats but he'll get it and when he does, I think he'll be sitting all the time!...  and he's loving the nose work which we do in the garage so each dog can have private time... He even went by the garage door and gave a bark this weekend.. like... come on!  let's do this!  Smart Boy!

Last Days of Summer...

Beautiful day outside so we spend some time in the back yard just playing... Spencer likes grass being thrown at him and it jazzed him up and we got some good rattie runs out of him...  It was fun seeing him relaxed and just enjoying himself... no worries...

Happy Spence!


Why so happy Spence?  I think it's because he jumped on the couch and rolled over and asked Cassie for a belly rub!  He's also been working hard on learning "sit" and is getting pretty good at it too! 

We've just started on teaching him some "nosework" (nose work encourages your dog's natural drive to hunt, coupled with their special talent for picking up scents and finding their source) with boxes out in the garage... He sure is having fun finding treats in boxes!

Pet Store Time!

Took Mr. Spencer to the big Pet Store... He was a little nervous but up for exploring this big store!   He just needed to take his time.   He would get a little shy when people would walk by and hide behind me, but then peek out... and then come out for a sniff, pet and what.. no treat?  (but yes, I had treats :)). 


 What he didn't agree to was a kitty cat panda hat...but I think he look pretty adorable! 
He did good -  he just needs to used to the hustle and bustle... a few more times and i think he will be a champ at being in this busy place.
