Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday

I wasn’t planning to make a comic for today, but as I was procrastinating while sitting at my desk, these pictures rolled by in my screensaver slideshow. How could I resist making a comic from this after THAT?

Zach was such a good pup. He learned to obey so quickly. Can’t believe it’s been almost 7 1/2 years since I took these photos.

    Okay, so HOW did you train him to come? Roxy KNOWS what it means, and she will obey when she FEELS like it. Ugh! Stubborn! I would like to feel comfortable letting her off the leash at the park, but she’ll take off to go see whatever interests her…to heck with me telling her to come!

    • Hi Roni. I used a 15 foot rope. I was on him every time, and gave the rope a firm yank to get his attention if he didn’t feel like coming. It was like following your toddler around, and giving constant physical correction (like removing the little hand from the figurine…). We didn’t use treats. He got the idea after only a few days, then he had it down. Of course, every dog is different. 🙂

    I’ve done that a lot. Hmmph. She KNOWS what I want…it’s not that she hasn’t got the idea. She’s just a stubborn brat. Also, maybe I just haven’t done it ENOUGH. Zach is a good boy.
