Monday Question

Having you gone through training classes?  Do you respond to voice or verbal commands?

Pocket:   No training for me and boy does it show.  If I was a big dog I would be trouble.

River Song:  I got trained at Petco.  It was great. I was trained all alone and everyone in the store played with me.  Later on we found out I was trained by someone in grooming and not a real trainer.  But I am still good. I respond to voice commands.


  1. We are just well behaved without training but we do better around trained humans.

  2. Easy once went to a training class... butt the mighty fine ladies there feared for their handbag sized pups, so the mama had to do everything alone and separated... and it was more a place for people than for dogs, so the mama gave it up. We think we will go to oxford once to dog-torate, with all that weim-wisdom inside, we have to, right?

  3. Errrr, I am a PRINCESS...I TRAIN others, like my staff to do what I want! although I can be tempted with a TREAT to do the SIT command...but ONLY if there is a TREAT involved

  4. Oh yes. We've all had training and some of us have even competed in obedience trials. Fudge has a title. Mom practices with us when we have our snacks and we do both voice and hand signals.

  5. Yes, there is an ongoing training class, the Dad is a slow learner!

  6. Rosy and Arty are trained and both respond(most of the time) to voice commands and hand signals....Jakey well, sometimes he will beg for a treat ;-)

  7. I never had a formal education. I will usually sit when yum yums are imminent, and come when called if I'm not too busy following a scent or barking at someone. I know how to make funny faces for the camera, and how to stalk a squirrel. Most of the time I will obey "stay" and "leave it." Hey, that't enough, isn't it?

  8. Hazel is retired from training classes but I go usually at least 3 times a week to either class or just open practice and mom & I practice at home too

Bishop Arrives at Rainbow Bridge

  The ground shook, the wind bent the trees, and a tremendous howl arose amongst the angels. It was clear that something big was crossing the river:  Czar Bishop had come to Rainbow Bridge. The Czar, son of Miss  Kimberli, brother to the legendary Apollo and Napa, had used every heartbeat and more as he fought to stay with his mom and continue teaching all the orphaned dogs that his mother took in and found new homes for them to live.  When word spread of Bishop's arrival, dogs came from every corner of the Bridge to pay homage to him and greet the incredible dog who inspired his mom to save many other dogs. Bishop also helped his mom create one of the most entertaining Facebook profiles. Transcribed were the conversations between Bishop and his mom ranging from the new students two what he needed at the store. Few dogs have been blessed with a bigger heart than Bishop. He had his collection of pets he doted
