Photo Friday ~ Brewer the Beaver!

Last weekend my husband and I took the dogs with us for a small trip to the shore. Saturday morning we went to a local dock where you can crab and fish off of one side of the dock and swim on the other. Our Clicker Savvy Canine Brewer LOVES the water. Absolutely can’t get enough of it. He will swim till he can’t swim anymore (which is why he now has a life jacket). His brother Bailey on the other hand has never had the opportunity to be in water deep enough for him to actually swim, and it showed. Here are a few pictures of our trip to the dock. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to snap a picture of Baileys first/last time in the water for the day, but I got plenty of Brewer. Doesn’t he look like a beaver swimming in the water!

He loves doing this and will do it for hours on end!

Photo Friday ~ ClickerExpo Manners

Last week we had the pleasure of attending the ever so awesome ClickerExpo to help expand our knowledge on animal behavior and of course clicker training! This weeks Photo Friday shares a couple pictures we took of some of the many well mannered pups we were lucky to of met while soaking up tons of information in presentations or training labs.

A great example of how "settle" on a mat can be useful in public.

Crate training is not just for the home environment. This dog is relaxed and comfortable in her pop up travel crate while another dog is demoing for a lab.
