Leading By Example

Bentley and Pierre love learning and practicing new tricks.  They take turns leading by example.  Pierre is showing Bentley how to “turn around” and Bentley is helping Pierre to learn how to sit up like a gentleman.

Whenever I tell Bentley to turn around, he usually takes a minute to give it some deep thought before accomplishing the trick.  However, Pierre is in my peripheral vision spinning like a top!  I really believe they help each other learn.

"Don't worry Pierre, you'll get it. Just relax."

November is Adopt a Senior Dog month. 



We are counting down the all of the great reasons to choose an older dog for your best friend.  We did not post one yesterday, so today you get two!



Reason #21
You CAN teach an older dog new tricks.
Reason #20
Many senior dogs have been in the shelter system most of their lives.  They truly appreciate your care and love.


Don’t miss tomorrow’s post!

We are once again joining our friends at BlogPaws for another fantastic
Wordless Wednesday.  Be sure to visit all of these great blogs below!

  7. I am sometimes amazed at how much my dogs--and cats--learn from each other. Even between the species!

  14. My guys can't do tricks together. Jimmy gets way too greedy about the treats!

  15. My dog only does tricks that have to do with food. He can push around a treat ball and solve a treat puzzle, but I don't think he would stand on two legs. You're guys are very talented.

  23. I love to watch Bentley sit up! So adorable. I am trying to teach Harley to learn how to "high-five" sitting up before he gets his treat. He is coming along. It's harder w/o Leo :( they too learned well together.
