i put one of these on my photo blog the other day, but thought you might want to see them:
you’re used to seeing the silly pickles. well, here is serious pickles, the agility dog.
last night our agility instructor started calling her “perfect pickles”!
and yes, i did make the jumps. two of the three. it was easy and cheap.
so there you have it. my intense little pickles, concentrating very hard to get to me as fast as possible so i can give her a piece of cheese.
in all the classes i’ve taken with my dog and worked at with other peoples dogs i have learned that usually the dog who is doing the best in class….is the one with the best treats. the dogs that aren’t as focused some how magically focus more when you stop giving them dry, crunchy, boring dog biscuits and give them roasted chicken, cheese, turkey dogs, fresh beef livers. for extreme cases we use peanut butter or tripe.
i hate tripe. i won’t stand near anyone that is using it.
