Lyra - Week 3, Day 1

I outsourced today's lesson.  You'll understand after you see it.

Here's a video showing extremely good play skills.  Four specific techniques are demonstrated; running away without holding the end of the toy (chase), "tagging" the dog and running off, running with the dog while holding the end of a toy, and playing tug after falling to the ground.  All excellent games to play with a puppy.  The purpose of the toy in Lyra's mouth is to keep her from chomping legs and clothing.  Ideally, she'll outgrow the need for a toy in her mouth and she'll be able to run and play without it, but for now, she's learning how much fun it is to run and play with humans.



what a great way to wear out a puppy! maybe you should rent them out ;)

Oh how I envy those young legs. Running on my two artificial knees can’t start to be that exciting for a pup. I have to rely on deception so she comes to believe I am exciting.
