Chip Pleas

Oh Hello Mommy.
I thought I heard the crinkle of a bag...
the crunch of a chip...
I'm just so famished I can't even hold my own head up...
You couldn't spare any of those chips could you???

Excuse Me Have You Seen My Tail Feathers?

When I go back to my pond, it is not uncommon for me to see a Great Blue Heron, as they frequent my pond.  Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for the Great Blue Heron to also see me... before I see it.  Therefore, my view is of the tail-end flying away.
Last weekend though, I had a 'lifer' encounter, as a Green Heron (Butorides virescens) flew out of some brush and landed in a tree to pose for me.  This sighting and photo opportunity is a first for me, and I was thrilled!!!

Most people teach their dog basic commands. The animal will come when called, sit and stop on command. However, when the animal is allowed outside and will not come when called or totally ignores its master, the time has arrived for the e-collar to be introduced. The collar includes a small receiver, much like a beeper. When the dog is being trained by its owner, a signal goes from the hand-held unit to the beeper on the dog's collar. If the owner just wants to get the dog's attention, a brief vibration will alert the animal to its owner's wishes. If the animal is being difficult, a longer vibration will stop the animal and make it do what the owner wants. The e-collar is designed for small to medium sized dogs with little behavioral problems. There is also available a collar for larger dogs with larger behavioral problems. The animal doesn't get zapped by a Star Wars laser beam, but by a tap from the collar. If the tap is short, the animal knows it's owner wants it. If the tap is longer in duration, the dog knows it's done something wrong and should reverse its position. The units are waterproof. If the dog thinks it can drown the signal, it would be mistaken. Should the dog wander off and not return when called, a longer zap will alert the animal to the problem. A short tap will tell the dog not to swipe the owner's supper off the table.

K9 Bootcamp

People are excited when they bring a new dog into their family, but sometimes the pup is in need of some serious training in order to work well with you in your home. K-9 Companions offers many dog training courses but are probably best known for their K9 Bootcamp. Your pooch must leave your home and stay with the K-9 Companions for two to four weeks in order to get the proper training they need. Trainers have either a C.T. (certified dog trainer) or a C.M.T. (certified master dog trainer) certification and they use positive reinforcement when training your beloved pet. Socialization with other people and dogs is an added bonus as your dog will train daily among several other dogs and will have multiple trainers so they don’t bond to any one person. This will be helpful should you want to take your pet to the dog parks after their training. When you come back to pick up your pooch, you will get a demonstration of all they’ve learned, without them knowing you’re there. K-9 Companions offer several additional ongoing support lessons at their facilities that you can take at no extra charge during the year that follows Bootcamp. After camp your dog should be well mannered and able to do things such as stop at curbs and not run in the street, stop at doors and gates, and know to come in and settle down in their ‘place’ as to not bother you while you work in the house.
