Last time I explained some things about my breed- Golden Retriever and why we are so awesome.
In today’s post, I want to talk about the top five fun things you can do for your dog!
I love to chase, the most fun I have chasing is at the beach chasing the shore birds through the shallow water. So far, I have never got close enough to even nip at a feather, but one day those birds are going to make a tasty treat. I think. I have never tasted bird. An alternative if you’re afraid your dog might catch a bird is the awesome iFetch I just started playing with.
Some dogs love to swim. I have seen dogs swimming with their owners at the lake and even in the swimming pool! I want to keep my feet firmly on the lake bottom. Once my owner threw a stick out into the water and I ran after it through the shallow water. All of a sudden my feet were paddling in the water and not touching the bottom. That was an exciting experience!
Hide and seek-
Hide and seek can be entertaining. My owner started by hiding a special treat under a sheet of newspaper and helping me find it. When I got good at finding that, they found harder hiding places. One day my owner brought a book home from the library. It was yellow and was about Dummy dogs or something. Imagine, Dummy dogs. I was insulted! She tried to teach me to open the fridge with a sock tied to the handle. Even though I knew there was a special treat in there for me, I didn’t like opening the fridge door. I liked learning to bring an empty pop can to her; I liked smashing it in my teeth and making noise with it. I think she was planning to train me to open the fridge and bring her a pop. Why would I learn that? I already have her trained to keep my bowl at least half full at all times. Haha
Once my owner stopped with the yellow Dummy Dog books and started teaching me basic obedience training with Dan, it helped me stay challenged and alert. I started feeling smarter from the Go! You know… dogs get pretty excited when they’re exposed to new stuff.
Squirrels always are exciting. I can stand under a tree and bark for hours if I see a squirrel. If the squirrel leaps to another tree I can run over and bark there. Sometimes I can run from tree to tree and bark and bark. And those sneaky squirrels have already left the yard. I don’t know what I would do with the squirrel but I sure want to catch one! Sometimes in the house people mention squirrels and I can have fun running from window to window barking and looking for squirrels.
