Taking Turns!

Hello! Treasure speaking! Tonight in our training session, we started learning a better way of taking turns! It is important for use to learn how to take turns really well so that we don't get into fights over the treats, and so that we don't distract the working dog while they are learning something new! It was difficult for us to just stay on the couch because it was such a big space, and we were confused as to where each of us were supposed to be. So, Ellie thought that maybe it would be more clear to us if she gave each of us an assigned bed to stay on while the working dog is training. Here are some pictures of our progress! We look kind of sad in these pictures, but we are really not! (Ellie says please don't mind the clutter in the background!)


  1. You all did a great job!

    Ooh - that is a GREAT idea!! I think your human is a fantastic trainer & dog handler. We get so many people asking us how to cope with training 2 dogs, distracting each other, etc, etc...we're going to refer them to your blog! :-)

    Hello Honey! Ellie says, "Thank you!" Maybe we will put up a blog explaining how to teach this if people are interested....

  4. That is such a great idea!!!  Our human really needs to do that with us, make us use our mentals a bit more!  At the moment she just shuts one of us outside *Humph!*

    Great job to your human - the photo's are great!

    Licks and lots of slobber,

  5. OOOOoooo aren't you clever doggies...good work x

  6. Hi,

    It is nice to find your blog (from Honey the Great Dane's blogpost about me and my brother Enzo). We love how you take turns, and that is something Enzo and I have to work on.
