Last night, THOR and I did our first Domesti-PUPS “Petting-PUPS” therapy session. We took a trip to the Windcrest Assisted Living Community, and had a GREAT time. THOR really latched on to his new job. He was so excited when i got out his red “Training” bandana, and hopped right into the car: i feel […]
whew. OMG. YIPPEE!!!! THOR and I are now an Official Domesti-PUPS “Petting PUPS” Therapy Team In Training! Saturday morning, we got up early, had a good breakfast, leashed up (with Lucy in tow… well, or… towing us!) and went for a good walk/jog/mini-training session. It. Was. Hot… and the session didn’t go as well as […]
THOR and i have our Domesi-PUPS test tomorrow at 10:30am. i’m a bit worried… mostly because I, as trainer, have not put in the time and effort. but, it’s time, and we will see how we do. Keep your paws crossed.
MORE Domesti-PUPS Fun!

Thor Training, Closet Cleaning & Blood Donating
whew – file this under Doing Good Things! THOR and I had another Domesti-PUPS session… it was work at the beginning. a true test of wills, on both our parts. but i started to notice, he’s very good around the two Trainers…. we’ll be walking around in a large circle as a group… while we […]
the true test
uggh- tonight is the true test of the last two weeks of actual dog training. i am nervous. hopefully THOR decides to SIT, STAY, WAIT, DOWN, LEAVE IT and COME when asked. hopefully…
A Day for our Earth!
HAPPY EARTH DAY! i have to admit, i am kind of excited! Last night, after some frustrating, but then very successful Pup Trainings with BOTH pups, i decided to pull out the Push Mower and tackle the lawn. we got quite a bit of rain last week, and those green blades of grass were long […]
