Road Trip on the 4th of July

Hello ! 

We took a short road trip, 5 hours total, deciding it was easier just to take the boys along.

Easy on the Nerves

Better for Opus, as he still needs to learn the ropes by exposure.  The photos are from our return trip; this was the scene on the way back. Apparently it’s rather exhausting to ride in the back of the car.image0007 image0009
image0010image0004Breeder’s Note: This is certainly a solution that works. Escaping the hoopla seems like a good plan. Some folks need to resort to using prescription drugs to get through this trying time. It is only once a year; however, for some pets it is agony. While they shake, quake, and refuse to go outside to potty other Weimaraner are perplexed. One Washington Weimaraner spent the forty-eight hours wondering why birds were not falling from the sky. We cannot understand why their humans were not tossing birds from the roof. Seriously, it might be more fun for everyone. (JK)

Mouthy Opus

Odin and Mom Terrible Twos

I wanted to send this photo of Opus. He is in the throws of terrible twos. It’s perfect timing the post you’ve made recently. He’s my third Weim. No surprises, right? Have a sense of humor, ye Weim lovers. He’s my challenge baby.

I’ve spent a week feeling sorry for myself because I feel I failed him as a trainer. After the blog posts I know we will be fine.

Would love for Cliff to offer suggestions. We have been praising him, redirecting and providing more chew toys but he really gets going when we walk in the door. It’s been months but he got up on the counter the other day. Pedro picked up the mouse trap and that’s all it took. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise-Opus recognized the tiny contraption and moved out immediately. ~ Melinda

 Cliff Says: Keep up what you are doing; stay positive, and don’t let him get by with the mouthing. Some of the best Weims want to dominate you with their mouth. It is about ownership–they love you so much, they want to help you run your life too!

The mousetrap can thwart the trash-thief, or keep them off the counter. I don’t use them, because the sound of the mousetrap mimics the bird-launcher. It would be counterproductive. Then they would be afraid to bird train.


Neutering Happens……

………….a change for the best!
