Flyball Practice

As part of Dennis’s flyball training, my wife has been trying to teach him to go pick up a tennis ball from on top of a Yoplait yogurt container, with varying degrees of success.

The yogurt container is full of plaster of Paris, which I guess is supposed to keep it from tipping over. In this, it is only moderately successful.

“Aieee, it moved!”

Dennis is easily distracted …

“Oooh, it squeaks!”


“Oh, is THAT all you wanted me to do?”

  3. Like with so many things it seems it was 3rd time lucky! 🙂 I too have been experimenting with clicker training with My Mummy, I have so far learnt to sit and wait for My Mummy to click and feed me a treat as well as beg, wait for the click and get my treat. Now the question is what next do I train My Mummy to do with the clicker?! 😉


  4. I cannot IMAGINE Cai and Fergus sitting still in the same room as each one takes a turn at something. Must work on training, must work on training…
