Shinju and Tatsu

Shinju and Tatsu

I could not ask for more beautiful boys. I have so much fun with them. They are Whippets and they are fiercely independent.

Friday's work schedule keeps training time short.

this morning we worked for a short time, about 30 minutes, on "sit" and "stay".  We did what Janice Patton calls half-push ups and then moved to stay in different positions.  Neither of my dogs seems to grock the meaning of Down or sit, they just seem to do what comes to them first to do.  The frenzy of hunger is about all they seem to have.  After they calm down a little and they have a few successes, they start to look for my hand signals and they get those correct almost every time.
