Back to blogging AKA Dog training

Hello everyone!

Yes, I haven’t been very disciplined about posting in my blog, but sometimes, life happens…  Family obligations, work, and personal challenges were obstacles.  However, this isn’t in my plans for this Winter.

I’ve decided to start modestly, and go back to training basic tricks to my old and young dogs.   Fear not my friends, I’m not quitting agility.  No, I’m simply taking my time.  You see, Fannie loves ring crews too much, and continuing triailing would simply be a waste of money, and frustrating for both human and dog.

Here goes….

Trick number 1 – Play dead

Here’s Jasmine version of it.  She mastered this trick eons ago.  Sometimes, an extra “bang” is required for her to understand what I want….  😉

Pow – Jasmine style

…aaaand, here is Fannie’s first steps in conquering “Bang”

Pow – Fannie’s beginning

Next goal: to update this blog in less than three days…  See you then.


About The adventures of the piano keys

Hello there, A few years ago, I adopted a little white fluffy dog who I named Jasmine. Like any good intentioned dog owner, I registered for dog obedience classes. Little did I know how these lessons would go on to introducing me to the wonderful world of dog sports. Since then, Jasmine has participated in agility, flyball, and rally obedience events. We don’t expect to make any world team, but we love the training, competing, and most of, the chance of spending time together and having fun. In February 2011, I adopted a second dog, Fannie. This blog is a journal of our activities. Sit back, put your feet up, and I hope I can tease a smile out of you with our antics.

    I’m lousy at teaching tricks. Tried to teach Beckett to shake a paw and Keltic to roll over, neither of them learned their trick.
