Training Days — 13 Comments

  1. Sounds like a good book alright Grandad !

    Would it work for training adult children too ?

  2. Does 'her indoors" actually read your blog?


    I'm surprised you get any dinner some days!!

    • She does occasionally, as far as I know.

      As for dinner, I do the cooking in this house ever since that Bromide incident.

  3. Why is it that when I paste in a Smiley, it shows up as I type but then disappears in the final version as posted?

  4. It's also very satisfying when you train a dog to do simple yet necessary things like holding their bladder overnight. Took me a few days to make Ozzie realise that he wasn't in the animal shelter anymore, in otherwords; he couldn't lift his leg anytime he wanted to indoors. We even allow him to sleep up in the room with us at night (in a bed of his own, mind).

    I don't suppose there's anything in the book that teaches dog how to stop stealing sandwiches or toast when your back's turned? That look he gives you when you come back in with your mug of tea and he's licking his chops – "What?? Did I do something??!

    • Alas there is no mention of sandwiches.  Our Penny has a thing about spread [yoiu know that stuff that isn't butter nor margarine?]  She can demolish a full 1lb tub in one sitting.  I don't know how it doesn't make her sick.  It's a great laxative though!

  5. Strange- I knew it was coming but I still had a good laff at the punchline, it must be the way you tell 'em!

    Happy New Year
