Now I'm a movie maker :o)

Just playing around. My camera will record moving pictures and sound. Let's see if I can get it to work. I can't find the instruction book so it's a case of press a few buttons. My first movie star is Henry.

  1. Awwww, I think he would rather play ball than have his picture taken. He seems a bit camera shy.

  2. I love the embarrassed look - 'I must have done something, she's pointing a thing at me!. Never mind, Henry, perhaps you'll get lots of fan mail.

  5. It's much better than when you point a camera at a cat. They may be turning somersaults chasing something but the minute you get out the camera they just stand there!

  9. What normally happens is that I kick the ball back to him and try and score a goal. Most of the time he catches it and bounces it back to me. He is very clever.

  11. Looks like a very sweet ,calm dog. I'm preparing (reading books,watching videos,volunteering at shelter,playing with friends dogs,etc) to become a first time dog owner and or foster mom to a dog in the near future. Just curious as to your dog training methods/philosophy etc. Any faves or ones you avoid?thx.

  12. Hi SuZwil. Thanks for looking at my blog. The dogs I look after are all quite well trained, so I ask the owner how they would like me to treat the dog, so it will not notice any difference when it is out with me.

    I started with Henry when he was quite young and it was quite difficult to stop him pulling on the lead. The best thing to do is to keep the lead quite shortish so the dog is close to your side. When it starts pulling, stop walking and wait for it to calm down. Tell it to sit, and wait untill it does. Then praise and set off again. It takes ages to go a short distance because you need to stop everytime it starts to pull. Don't yank on the collar, just hold firmly. The dog should eventually get fed up of all the stopping, and realise it isn't going to get anywhere untill it walks properly. Choke chains are awfull, and those collars that give a shock should be banned.

    In my opinion dogs need to be trained by one person, it's owner, from a young age. Give a treat as a reward for doing well, and never hit or shout at a dog.

    Someone told me once that you should feed a dog after all the humans in the family have eaten, because it is a pack animal, and it needs to be taught that it is at the bottom of the pack. I can see some sense in that.

    I think a lot depends of the temperament of the breed. Henry is very intelligent and I sometimes think he needs more challenges. He did go to puppy classes and enjoyed it, he is very sociable. I think he would do well as a search and rescue dog.

    Basically reward when the dog does well.
