Java’s braided pants

Today we were bored so we decided to braid Java’s “pants” (it’s what we call the fur on a long-haired dog’s upper leg.) I also braided her tail.


















It’s fun to do something unique or silly with your pets every once and awhile.

How to Make a Fun and Easy High Value Reward for Your Dog! [video]

Here is another treat idea. This movie explains how to make a fun and easy high value reward for your dog.

If taken out of the freezer just before use, this treat can last a long time. I bring it with me all the time when I go on walks with Tessa up on the hill and practice recalls.

This treat can be given to a dog to keep him/her busy for about 15-30 minutes.
