Ultimate Control – Level Expert Unlocked

We all teach our dogs different tricks, from the most important ones (sit, stay, wait), to the funniest ones. And our pups love to listen to us. Anything to make the human happy, right?And Lisa totally loves to make her pack members smile.

DSC_1855Keeping this in mind, I’ve decided to take a challenge, and see if I succeed.  With a bit of practice, the results are fantastic!

I present to you what I believe is the hardest trick for a dog.

I take the treat, ask her to sit nicely, then place the cookie on her head, and give her the command to wait. After a few seconds, I tell her to go for it, and before you can blink or ask yourself ‘where did it go?’, the treat is gone. I tell you for sure, the word ‘go’ is the most desired command of the day, especially when you have a yummy cookie placed gently between your eyes!

She learned the trick in only one week, so I think it’s not bad at all. Who said you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? 🙂

‘Bring your dog to the office’ day

That’s it, after counting the votes, Lisa lost. She was ‘offered volunteer‘ to work 🙂

Here are some pictures from her time in the office.

1. Lunch time

Lisa: If I make this crazy adorable face, will mommy give me her chocolate?

Answer: Nope. 

Lisa: Ok…how about now? (look at my face, look at it!)

Answer: No, chocolate is bad for you.

Lisa: But mommy…

2. Working hard or the “Stepping on your shoes until you pet me” technique 

Lisa: Is she looking now? … Yes, yes, I did it!

3. The CEO

She got promoted on her first day at work. Pretty neat I would say!

P.S. In case you wonder, the answer was still no, but she got a treat. How can you refuse such a face? 🙂
