Post things your beagles have done lately that have been bragworthy or just charmed your pants off!

I will go first. Tonight, after about a week of concentrated effort and lots of encouragement, Bones rolled over on command unassisted for the first time. I was absolutely delighted!

Have your pups learned new tricks, taken to housebreaking, refrained from stealing a hamburger from the dinner table? Let's hear about it!

Well...since I can't really brag about the biting, chewing, gnawing, and peeing and pooping in the house, about the only thing I CAN brag about right now is that Maggie is just so darn cute and lovable! Good thing for that! LOL

Blue learned that when we say up, he sits and puts his paws up and balances. We are proud. We add that to sit, lay down, speak, roll over, play dead, shake, fist bump, high five and say please. We have been working on put it away (toys in the toy box), drop it, and leave it. He does these for his dad, but not so much for me. Off works some times, but not when there is something good in the kitchen!!!

Any one have luck with "No Dig????" /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/sick.gif

We've noticed a huge difference in Duke the past month or so. He hasn't torn up a single newspaper or magazine, he hasn't had an indoor accident in forever and it seems like our little beagle is finally settling down. We are very proud of him, he is growing into a fine young man!

Kioko still has accidents, but they are fewer and farther between...AND she has begun to go to the door and signal when she has to go outside. It's ACTUALLY going to happen someday!

In addition, she is a great "sit"ter, and she is also very good with "drop it." We're very proud of how fast she picked those up.

She is a TERRIBLE counter surfer though...and dining room table surfer...and coffee table surfer...and "anything the four year-old has in her hand" surfer.

It's SO incredibly bad. I mean...I know she's a beagle, but holy crap.

My work takes me away for days or weeks at a time. When I return,Vinny is beyond excited to see me. However the one thing that is so very cool, he will not leave my side for days. He gets very jealous of Miles and tries to keep Miles away from me. I guess he is saying to Miles "my dad is home to see me". He wants all of my attention. The wife tells me he sleeps on top of my pillows when I am away.

And at at bed time, he gets right next to me to the point of pushing me out. However, after I am home for a while, he is back to "normal". /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Spencer has started to learn how to meet other dogs on leash again. I think that it is because he has been going to the dog park so much and has learned off leash not to be so defensive so on leash has been good again.

/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/sick.gif Who me - brag about the Beaglebratz - nah I never /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/sick.gif Anyway, Shasta - my youngest who will soon be 18 months, went to her first session to practice for her therapy dog evaluation in October. Even tho she did test my strength constantly when walking on a leash, she did sit; sit-stay for an extended time; sit-stay while I walked a short distance; almost - really did pretty good at leaving it; didn't over-react to a lady using a walker or someone sitting in a wheelchair; LOVED all the attention she got from all the "patients" even when one vigorously hugged her and didn't react to a book being dropped - loud noise. However, she did almost freak about the loud noise coming from the basketball play that was going on above us - so we did a meet & greet the basketball court and a basketball being dribbled. After a short time & LOTS of treats, she started to calm down and wanted to explore.

Ok - time for mommy Kim to get bak to work. Will try to check back in later.

It seems I have one of those rare beagles who rarely misbehaves. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/sleepy.gif How I love my Li'l Girl, and how fortunate I am that she needed a home! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/doh00000.gif

I guess the most impressive good girl thing she's done recently was the day the gate was left open, and she didn't go outside it. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/PuppyEyes.gif

Miley learned the past couple of days to sit and stay while I place her dog food down.

I know that this may seem like a little feat to some of you but let me tell ya, it was hard work /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/photo.gif she would attack me everytime I had her bowl in my hand.

/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/PuppyEyes.gif Meg will sit, sit and stay, up, do the down, she stands on her 2 back legs and does a twirl, she does high 5, she waves, she does wee's on command, and 99 % of the time, she will come back when off the lead , after i call her. she knows it when i say " we are going out in mummy's car " and so rather than rush off down the drive at 50 miles an hour, she goes and waits by the back door or the car to get in. she will leave her meal until i say she can eat it, even if it's next to her on the floor. she takes our socks off for us on command. she will fetch her ball, and if i tell her to go find Dan or Amy, she runs off to find them. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/pet.gif

Yesterday, Jersey and I were visiting the neighbors (about 5-6 of them were sitting outside on the patio at the neigbor across the street) over at Aunt Mary's house. One of them has a Jack Russell Terrier named Maddy that Jersey plays with when she's with my aunt. Well, Maddy is very loud, barks all the time and is just so hyper. We were talking to the neighbors and Jersey just put her head on their laps waiting to be petted. Even when people were wlaking by and Maddy was going crazy, Jersey just hung out, being so good. All the neighbors kept commenting on how good Jersey was. I was very proud of my girl for being so well behaved.

Daisy will graduate from puppy obedience class Saturday at 10:45. She has learned sit, stay, leave it, drop it (most of the time), high five, give paw, and ask. She's not 100% perfect especially when she's excited but it's a lot of progress from where we started.

She will start her intermediate training class next Saturday at 2:30 as well.

When Hubby gets home from work, he will pat his thighs and Chloe will jump in his arms. She is a big fattie and it is a lot of work for him to catch her. Lillie has her head on my hands right now as I am typing watching what I am doing. And Stray Jack did not roll in doo doo at all today!

Gee. Someday Peanut will hopefully do everything that you are all bragging about. But for now, she is almost potty trained (very few accidents). And...well... she has learned "sit." But I don't think she's doing too bad for a 12 week old.

Well.... I am hard-pressed to brag about The Little Princess... but I love her to pieces anyway! Penne is about 5 or 6 years old and is not the best behaved dog on this planet! Just when she learns to behave in one area, she decides she will act up in another! If I had to pick something about her to brag about, I would say that she has made peace with our cat, Pringle, and has even attempted to play with him recently! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/yell.gif

I don't have anything recent to brag about (their recent tricks mostly involve stealing food from the children while looking completely innocent).

I will mention that when Lucy was young, she was being trained as an assistance dog, and one thing she learned to do was to flip a light switch. We got a wireless switch, put the switch on the floor, and set it up to control a table lamp. Then when we went to bed, we sent Lucy to turn out the last light!

This was in the early days, before nightstands and bedside lamps, and before Lucy informed us that part of the bed was hers. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif

Well, Henry doesn't know any tricks or follow any commands.

But when he wants to go outside or request a snack, he sits in front of me and uses my legs to push himself into a sitting-up position :B. Then he uses he front paws to bat around at me while he makes the cutest little whiney noises.

He also makes it quite clear when he wants to go to bed...he lays on the steps or goes all of the way upstairs and sits by the bed waiting to be loaded in.

So really, Henry should brag about how well I follow commands. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif
