Vanilla Wafer Update

Linda @ Lime in the Coconut referred to my babies as vanilla wafers and that is what I have been calling them now for a while. I thought you might like an update on Newman and his progress as an apprentice at the sealaura institute.

Well as you can see here his brother Norman who happens to be the CEO of our company is setting a great example. Here they are on one of their many breaks. Newman has mastered the skill of napping.They do live luxurious lives. That faux fur throw is my favorite blankie but it is now theirs!
Lastly here are my 2 employees at full attention during our last board meeting. But I think they thought they were going to get a treat so they were especially attentive. Newman is a sweetheart but we are working on NOT barking at people when we go on walks or after I put him the crate in order to go to my other job, the one that pays! Anywho I welcome any tips on that matter. He is a very good boy but the barking and being overly protective is a bit much, help!!
Thank you lovelies for your kind words regarding Meta. xoxo

I love vanilla wafers!! So true - little people = love a lot!! As for the barking, hmmmm....not being a dog owner myself I'm not really sure how you'd tackle that one - is there any info on line perhaps? Thank you for the update - look forward to more in the near future!!

When my Sheldon was just a pup I enrolled him in an 8-week socialization class in Studio City. The class consisted mostly of younger dogs, five years and younger. The purpose was to get the dogs used to be around other dogs and people in a park setting. We all loved this class and the results were spectacular.

One dog showed up and barked at everyone and anything. Here is the method the trainer used: Out of her "bag of tricks" she pulled out lemon juice, you know the kind that comes in the container shaped like a lemon? Every time the dog barked she squeezed a bit of juice into his mouth, explaining that the dogs don't like it, but it doesn't hurt them and gives them good Vitamin C.

The following week the dog showed up and never barked. He learned to be a wonderfully social dog and was definitely a much happier dog. His owner said it only took three days for him to completely learn that if he barked inappropriately, he would get the dreaded squeeze.

Hope this helps.

Oh they are so cute and my Hera says Hi to them. Now I am the proud mother of a 5 months old beagle but my previous dog was a daschund. Hera only barks when she wants to play but as for my other dog she was a constant barker and lived her life like that. I hope you can improve on that..
