I had a trainer over today.

He told me that instead of sit stay I should do down stay, because sitting is not so easy for a dog-- it is the equivalent of standing on one leg to a person.

As for the running, I always thought GSDs were more trotting than running dogs. When they herd, they trot, change direction, stop, trot. Not full out run for long periods of time. Isn't a Husky a sled dog, bred to pull a sled at full speed for miles?

Fun with Smokey!

We are working on 'spin' right now so it's still new to him...

I didn't want to make a new thread. I've a video of Zeeva walking on a flat collar. We're weening off of the prong. Smokey isn't there yet. I think I'll keep him on a prong for walks forever. Is that ok?

Sweet neighbor lady is doing well with the pups. Zeeva still barks at her but when sweet neighbor lady asks her to sit, Zeeva obliges and quiets down. She gets a treat c:

Anyway, the weather was beautiful today so I sat out in the sun and did a short photo session with both of them. I know I'm not the best photographer and they're celly pictures but I hope you all enjoy them.

I for some reason have always adored Smokey's paws. They're petite and cute. Zeeva's are big and her nails grow so quickly. I've NEVER had to cut Smokey's nails which is pleasant for the both of us.

My comical attempt at stacking Zeeva...LOL. Wish I had 2 other people to help me so I could have her critiqued (not that the critiques we got were bad c
