I haven't posted since Friday because Jenny and I spent the weekend stuck in bed with a horrible cough and really high temperatures. It was a real pain; we had to cancel a long anticipated family outing, as well as some quite important dog training. All the weekends when we had nothing planned when it wouldn't have mattered, and we had to be laid low this particular weekend. Ah well, worse things happen I know. I hope your weekend went well.
Anyway, Episode 81 of DogCast Radio is now available with two smashing interviews. Expert trainer Pam Dennison tells how to free shape using a clicker with your dog, and we have all the information you need about Tellington Touch from one of the UK's foremost authorities in the discipline, Toni Shelbourne. If you haven't heard the new theme music, have a listen and let us know if you prefer the old music or the new.
When you are stuck in bed feeling rough, it's good to lie back and watch a great doggy film, and Beverly Hills Chihuahua is just that. What I love about this film is it has so many messages, but it manages to deliver them without preaching. Things like the rewards of adopting a rescue dog, an anti dog-fighting thread, and a treat your dog like a dog not a fashion accessory theme. Suspend your disbelief and stick with it and you'll enjoy it. And boy are those feisty Chihuahuas sweet?!
