Sally Smart Pants

 Training for Agility… ???

Dick Reported: I saw this big pile of panels (47 of them along with connectors) at a yard sale.  I visulized making a little pen for Sally for the front room.  This little pen would have contained my Dobie even when she was an adult.  You can see how Sally handled the situation.  I then made it twice as high.  That worked until Gale put her little crate in there too.   Sally sized up the situation, had toke two or three tries to get on top of the crate and then just jumped out.

Breeder’s Note: Cliff and Dick had a discussion about Sally yesterday. There is no way to prepare for the Weimaraner’s arrival. Your first can be somewhat exhilarating, and at the same time a lot of other things. Trying to formulate an exact plan, or relying on previous experience, usually doesn’t work the way you think it would. It has been said that we don’t give enough information on “how-to” to do the actual training, etc. It is very difficult to tell someone exactly what to do. There are dynamics in play you might not expect. Everyone’s ability, living situation, and interaction will be a bit unique. This is true even when you have had the experience of living with one of these wonderful creatures before the pup arrives.

Dick’s description of what transpired next is a hoot. Sally did OK until his wife added the kennel. Sally hopped on top of the kennel, and subsequently on over the fence. These guys get an idea, and then they problem-solve to achieve their goal. This can apply to any number of varied scenarios. It is hard to put into words the chess-match than can occur, or the things which might happen. The saying goes that you cannot take the boy out of a man; you cannot take the pup out of the Weimar. Just because they grow old, doesn’t mean they stop being creative, and adventurous. They are pranksters of a special sort.
