Quick Bio:

Birthday:
January 18th 2008

Likes:
Playing with other dogs, lounging on the couch, playing tug

Pet-Peeves:
Touching her when she is trying to sleep. Dogs that snap at her face. When she isn't the most important thing in your world at that moment in time.

Favorite Toy:
Peanut Butter flavored Cow Ears and her blue Kong Wubba. She also has taken quite an affinity to a "slingshot squirrel" we found at the hardware store. Now, she has also been loving a tennis ball and even learning how to catch it on the bounce.

Favorite Food:
Quincy has been having, and loving, Nutri Source Dog Treats

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere there are rabbits. She is venturing out further now and will walk long distances. She also loves to go to new places.

Best Tricks:
She doesn't know any tricks yet, but she is doing really well at basic obedience. She does speak reliably on command.

Arrival Story:
Quincy was found online. Her Dad had to be convinced to get her and now he just loves her. She is from Paw Paw

Bio:
Well, Quincy is now over a year old and her training is coming along great. She knows "Come", "Sit", "Stay", "Speak", "Quiet", "Down", "Leave It", "Take It", "Fetch or Bring it Back". We have been focusing on a great recall, but are now starting to try and teach her a "trick" like "Rollover". It is very hard to teach a hound dog to do tricks, but she has started to pick it up. I have hope. However, she has been recalling perfectly (Deep snow does help!). She has been very well behaved and is much easier to train that I had envisioned after reading the Breed guides. If you are considering a Basset, but are worried about training, Just remember, Be Positive, Be Consistent, Praise Often and Have Fun! It is NO harder than any other breed I've trained. In some respects, Quincy has been easier (but that might be because she is so special!)

Forums Motto:
