FitDog Friday

Hey pups! It has been ages since I last participated in this blog hop and boy have I missed it! Today's Fit Dog Friday comes in two parts...

PART 1-Physical

Today Mom and Mamma stopped off at Tesco to buy some stuff and guess what they came back with?!?!

Mom got this picture of Google and did not take it herself, plus ours is brown!

That's right: a ball thrower because Mom can't throw to make me tire out faster when the ball is thrown. We went off to test it right away at our local golf course in the dog friendly bit. I wasn't really interested in the ball that came with the thrower but when Mom used one of my own tennis balls...I was in love. However, Mom being the klutz that she is lost it in the long grass (Mom: In my defence the grass was really tall- taller that Dina!). Sorry that we don't have photos but Mom was going to try some of the attention exercises on my Training Aims post and her camera bangs around when she runs and it hurts her hip but we will have photos, maybe a video, of it in use soon!

Part 2-Mental

Me being a clever little tot not only need physical exercise to be happy but also mental. Mom and I have been working on our hold in this past week and we have upped to this:


We are not done yet with this trick and we are still working on it! Here are some links we found helpful when teaching this trick and exercise:

Mom made a discovery today that has opened a new chapter in mine and water's relationship- check back tomorrow for more details on that matter!

Licks and Wags,
Dina

PS. Sorry we are late posting today but Mom and Mamma had to go the the human vet's! :( But all is well now!

  5. My peeps is useless with the ball thrower. She has been known to hit people with the ball LOL. Great trick so far. We can't wait to see the next bit. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. You're doing good with your trick! As for the ball thrower, I think those things are great but our Callie rarely fetches a small ball, she prefers a soccer ball or her favorite - the JollyBall (horse toy).
