     No Trouble Here!

Two days ago Willow decided to dig under the fence into the horse pasture (which is also all fenced) because I had given my horse Boomer some treats and he had dropped the crumbs onto the ground…Willow HAD to get those crumbs, heaven knows she must think I don’t feed her dog food that is more expensive than my food, LOL! Anyway, I was here, and called her to find her looking at me perplexed from inside the horse pasture, not sure how to get back, I guess she figured it was a one-way hole. I told her she was naughty and let her back into the main yard and then praised her the moment she stepped foot in the yard so she knows she is a good girl when she is here.

That is a big mistake a lot of dog owners make, that I tell my dog obedience students about- when their dog is naughty, they tend to stay mad at them even afterwards when the dog is doing the right thing; that is wrong, they need to make sure to praise them the MOMENT the dog is doing what you want!

Breeder’s Comment: It is always a bad idea to believe the Weimaraner will never get into trouble. Sometimes trouble will find them, and other times the Weimaraner will get into a situation via ingenuity. The best-trained Weimar can find trouble. If you want a perfect dog, then we suggest you buy a stuffed one. (oops) Many thanks to Jan for all she does for and with Willow. This is a great example of what can happen.

We like to recommend Jan as a trainer. Her expertise and years of experience with the Weimaraner make her invaluable. There have been several OwyheeStar clients, which have attended her classes. If you live closed enough to take advantage, we urge you to do so. Click here to check out the opportunity!

  1. I agree with Willow, sometimes we find things we must have regardless of the consequences :o( I’m glad her mom helped her to find the way back, sometimes that “one way holes” are sneaky :o)

  2. Oh so true………one-way holes can lead to bigger problems. Like how do I find my way back?????????
