'Not only is punishment risky, but it also fails to teach the dog an acceptable alternate behaviour. The dog does not learn what to do the next time he is in the same situation. He only learns to fear the situation.' Emma Parsons, Click to Calm p73

Easter Saturday Is Fun Saturday.

We started the day with a little agility fun practice at the field at the end of my street, which Lola loved. Before we started, she saw a cat and took off after it, though stopped at the fence (which she could have easily squeezed through) and came back. She looked a little bit antsy until I'd set up the jump and got out her toy, and then she was right back there with me.

When we got back, I dropped off Lola and went up town, and returned with a bag of raw bones for the girls. They've both had a bone each; Jess devoured hers, but Lola ate all of the meat and everything but left most of the bone itself (which Jess was then given).

Now we've done some posing with new things, and we'll be going out for a nice walk later.
