Beautiful sunny afternoon in Seattle! All of the dogs were ready to burn off some energy today! We got right into the hills and they loved running around and chasing each other. There were a couple dogs that tagged along and played with the pack. It was pretty muddy so I moved all the dogs to the open field that is usually dry. I got the Frisbee out and Tracy and Rufus enjoyed chasing after it. Duchess and Jaya started playing with a very handsome pitbull. Once they were ready to go we started to walk up towards the water. They all did very well listening to me and moving forward. Sometimes they get sidetracked and want to sniff around. We got to the water and there were so many dogs! We played in the water for a bit and headed back to the open field. Everyone was tired at the end and away we went back home. I gave the dogs treats today and they really enjoyed that. The lucky 9 dogs in our pack today were Jax, Miles, Duchess, Coco, Dash, Rufus, Jaya, Odie and Tracy.
Today was a fun day to get out and do some dog training. The lucky dog today was Mollie and she got to learn more about sitting and staying when told and we also worked on shaping her recall. She wasn't perfect, but has come a far way since we started. She loves to work and please, the challenge is getting the stubbornness out of her. With more practice, I am confident she will come to me in any situation. Good day today, Mollie!
Today was a wet, rainy day at the dog park but the dogs didn't mind it one bit. We were lucky to have our spot since it's covered by rock and not muddy. Everyone was fully energized and was ready to play! I got the Frisbee out and everyone was having fun chasing each other around. Duchess, Jaya and Rufus was having a fun time playing together. The little ones were just sniffing around and even met a couple new dogs. We headed towards the water and the waves were coming in! The tide was up too. Tracy was ready to start swimming and everyone did a good job behaving around the other dogs. Odie had fun playing fetch with a stick while Jaya was waiting for Tracy to come to shore to steal her ball. She's such a cutie. We were at the water for awhile and once they were ready we headed back. We had a really fun day today considering the conditions. Enjoy the video and stayed tuned for Wednesday's park adventure!
Today, we had a very mature well rounded pack with us. Everyone behaved on the ride to the park and the truck was POOP FREE! I couldn't believe it, good job ya'll! The weather today was a little misty covered by clouds but not windy. Everyone started playing on the hills and released all that built up energy! You'll see in the video that Dash was not having a good day. He did not welcome any dogs into our pack, it's okay Dash, we all have our bad days. Once they got bored with the hills we moved to the open area and got the Frisbee out. Tracy enjoyed playing fetch and even caught a couple mid-air! The dogs were ready to keep moving so we headed towards the lake and I actually did a good job herding the dogs up the path. They got to the water and got some fresh water and met some new friends. One women loved all the small dogs and they welcomed her pug as well. I threw Tracy her pink ball and Rufus enjoyed taking it from her once she got back to shore. Thanks, Rufus, made my job much easier! We headed back to the hills and finished playing there. I was impressed how mature everyone was today. The lucky dogs in our pack were Meester, Rufus, Jax, Coco, Miles, Duchess, Dash and Tracy. Stay tuned for Monday's park adventure!
Today was an awesome day for the dogs. It was clear, calm and dry! We got out of the truck and I noticed no one pooped! I was amazed. Everyone waited patiently until they got in the park. Good job, doggies! The park looked full at first but turned out to be pretty empty. We played in the big open area and I got the frisbee out. Tracy fell in love with it and caught some mid-air! After some play time we headed towards the water. We got there and everyone seemed calm and happy. They all did their thing and played with each other. Tracy had fun playing with her pink ball as some others made a couple new friends. I was able to catch up with a couple dog walkers and meet some of their pack while we were there. After hanging around the beach for awhile we headed back to the open play area. After everyone was ready we headed towards the truck. Very fun, adventurous day! We had 8 dogs in our pack today including Jax, Miles, Coco, Duchess, Dash, Odie, Jaya and Tracy. Stay tuned for Friday's adventure. We'll have Rufus and Meester back with the pack!
I walked outside today and saw the the overcast clouds and I was like, oh no, another wet, cloudy day. Luckily, the sun was trying to come out and we were happy about that. Monday's are fun because most dogs have an abundance amount of energy and their tails are just a waggin! I rounded the pack up and headed to Magnuson park for some off-leash fun. When we pulled in , I realized there were hardly any vehicles parked and that meant more space for us! Once everyone got into the park we played in the big open field. After the dogs were ready for the next move, we headed towards the water. Everyone did a great job keeping up and moving through the other packs of dogs. Once we got to the water, there was another dog walker and her pack. She had a black small dog that Dash, the Chihuahua did not like and he told him to, well, you'll see. I know it's bad that I laugh about it, but I don't mind him telling dogs to stay away. They all loved playing in the water, chasing each other and drinking from the lake. We stuck around for awhile and even had the beach to ourselves! Once they were ready, we headed back to the field and played some more. After giving them fresh water, we leashed up and headed to the truck. Everyone did such a good job today I rewarded them with some turkey sausage. We had a great pack today including - Rufus, Cooper, Jax, Coco, Miles, Duchess, Dash and Tracy.
