As you know, me and Stanley have had company at our house.  So of course that means we were the ones who had to train them!  

First we taught the lady that a dog must always be attached to her hip.

Then I had to teach them how to throw the ball.

And Stanley had to teach the man how to give him really good scratches.

And of course there was also proper etiquette while going places in the truck.

Eventually they moved from the beginning levels to the intermediate levels which included constant petting and lap work.

And of course we had to teach them how to pose on a log.  The lady messed up cuz she remained standing.  So much training to do that we were exhausted!

  1. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh M&S we have missed you and Boyz you but you came back with so many good pics it was worth the wait. MOL a dog stuck to her hip that was funny. If one didn't know better, one would think you 2 are starved for affection but the truth is you two are like affection sponges..with energizer batteries you just keep on soaking up the loving.

  6. You need to write a book on training humans, you guys, your methods seem to be very quick and effective.

  7. It looks to me like you two did a great job for a weekend intensive training session! Good job, Doodz!

  8. NEw humans can be a lot of work...what kind of treats did you use to get them to behave?

  12. OMD, that's hard work! You two must be totally worn out!

  13. Bipeds CAN be really hard to train! You guys did a great job. I like that you taught the man to sit on the floor with you, too. We make our mom do that; Dad's a little harder to work with on that one.
