Have you joined the Train Your Dog Month challenge?
If not, what are you waiting for?
Maybe you need some inspiration from last year’s trainers.
First thing you should notice? The Train Your Dog challenge is also a Train Your Bird, Train Your Cat, Train Your Ferret—heck, even a Train Your Spouse challenge.
First we have Dawn of NEPA Pets who taught her parrot Eco to put coins in a bank.
I loved seeing him figure out the angle was wrong and changing his position to get the coin lined up with the slot. How smart!
And we’ll finish with the ambitious Kristine of Rescued Insanity whose training goal involved her dog, cat, and husband. Wow!
We’re not all training superstars like Kristine and Dawn. But we can all do one small thing with the animal we love to build our bond and give them fun.
So I hope you’ll join the challenge and come back here February 1 -8 to link your post about your experience. Who knows? You might be chosen at random to win a prize back and $25 donation to your favorite animal charity.
How do your animals feel about training? Is it fun? Or would they rather you left them alone?
