Snoozing On A Sunday Afternoon

by Houndstooth on

Over the weekend, the girls and I found ourselves on our own quite a bit as Team Küster went off to a bit of training.  Sunday morning, I got up before they left, but since I hadn’t taken a shower yet and had a couple of things to do, and since Rosie was taking a […]

by Houndstooth on

I’d mentioned before that we’ve been working on some fun clicker training with Rosie.  She’s proving to be a very quick study and she really loves that she’s figured out how to train us to click the clicker and feed her cheese.  It really is a lot of fun to see her soak everything up, […]

Here in our house, we’ve learned that one of the best ways to keep puppies out of trouble is to start keeping their brains working.  When Küster was a puppy, Mr. Taleteller started teaching him a few things that would help him in his future career as a search dog that were basic, easy things.  […]

Getting To Know You
