Friday Dog Blog: Cool Pet Tricks!

Posted by Seeking Solace |

I couldn't believe it until I saw proof. GML taught her boys how to walk on the treadmill! She said that she coxed them on the treadmill and then set it to a low speed, like 1.2 MPH. Then, she would give them a treat for every few seconds that they would stay on the treadmill and walk. She would gradually extend the time that the boys would get a treat.

The boys LOVE their treadmill workouts. This will come in handy during the long cold winters in Lake Effect Snow Central when the dogs can't understand why Mom can't take them for a walk when it's 10 degrees outside!

Here's little Frankie. Not bad for a five month old puppy!

Not to be outdone by his little brother, here's Eli Blue. Eli is almost four years old. Who says you can't teach an older dog new tricks!

Now, I wonder if someone will hold a piece of chocolate and give me a treat while I am on the treadmill!!!

My dog barks at and tries to attack the treadmill in my parents' basement. Her belief that it is a malevolent enemy would probably work against her walking on it.

Adorable pictures though - such pretty puppies!
