Cute New Tricks!

'BALANCING & CATCHING HER TREAT' Trick



Bear this in mind people, she just learned this trick overnight. Now it has been proven to you all, how fast Amber can learn a trick. And this is no easy trick coz the dog has to be stable & patient enough...She does sometimes flip her treat across the room but she'll get the hang of it soon!

Amber, 'TAKE A BOW!'




Yay! Amber finally mastered this trick. No more signal but all I need to say out is the command. A woohoo for Amber!!!

Haha! No lah...Actually, I still apply alot of patience but just push her a little bit harder & do it often, then she learns a trick fast...Faith just mastered her take a bow too yesterday. Faith takes slightly longer. She's also not bad at balancong her treat but not good in catching it. She drops it and then eat it. I guess dat trick is not really working for her!

Hi Melissa
Hurrah for Amber getting her tricks down...

I don't really bother with tricks for Cleo. My main concern for her is manners. I guess cause she gets quite boisterous at times. But she's pretty good at home. We don't have problems of her stealing food or messing up the house cause she's allowed free reign of the house when we're at work.i.e. more than 10 hours a day sometimes.

Hi Natasha & thanks.

Yeah manners is the main important thing and my amber sumtimes have no manners! she loves to dig her face into people's food, grab her ball from my hand(which is terribly painful), bang herself into people and jump on people. Some don't like it...Now working on a new trick called the 'Touch'. My dogs are also allowed free to roam in and out of the house. Even our bedrooms...but she doesn't destroy our properties coz we taught not to since young.

Hello Melissa,

Tell me about grabbing tennis balls. I think my hands are immune to Cleo's super jaws!

But she has been very good with young children and old people so far. Thank goodness!

She just gets mental when she's playing or excited, and esp when Doug's around. He encourages her bad behaviour which annoys me...

Hahahaha! Amber immediately lets go of her ball whenever I ask her to. If my mum asks her to, she doesn't...Amber's good ro everyone too. She loves young children and cats. Hehehe! But sumtimes, she freaks my cats out by starring at them. Kakakaka
