Hard to believe it's been three years. You & Bows would love all the snow we have and it's snowing again now. You two keep the squirrels busy until Daddy comes for you.

I adopted my first dog Moxie (a doxie) in February 2010 and his brhtoer Liam (a rottie) in April 2010. I have taken Moxie to obedience lessons that work with a lot of positive reinforcement. I have used the trick of constantly giving him treats as the walks by my side or since he is so low on the ground I have used one of those long wooden cooking spoons dabbed in peanut butter. By giving him a reward he has improved much on his walking, his nose is what gets him distracted a lot, its the hound nose. Our rottweiler is not food motivated at all but we have used positive reinforcement by petting him, so he walks by my side if i give him constant ear rubs or back pets I do use harnesses on the rottweiler and our foster dogs but I was very opposed from the beginning by suggestions of people that I needed a big choke collar because of the breed.Thanks for the post and maybe we can join the blog hop!
