Evan wanted to show off one of his favorite treats, and that would of course be basking in the sun at his beloved front door.
Thimble says her treat is for all of you, and that is her adorable face. See?
Eddy wants you all to know that one of the dirtiest tricks around here is when her mom shoves that flashy box in her face. Most especially when it catches a shot she isn't expecting.
Astrid wanted to use one of her famous pouty puppy selfies as a prelude.
And that sad little selfie is a prelude to what, you ask? Well, it's a prelude to what Astrid thinks is just about one of the most unfathomable tricks in this house. Astrid informed me that since JNW's Halloween Challenge prompt for today is trick, it would only make sense for her to illustrate her thoughts like this:
You see, believe it or not, these humans around here often ask that Astrid perform tricks in order to earn her treats. Can you believe that? Isn't that just the dirtiest sort of trick that ever existed? Astrid sure thinks so. Honestly, sitting and shaking, what's up with such nonsense? Astrid says she hopes none of her furiends out there have to endure such torment.
Happy Sunday to one and all!
Our Tip of the Day:Today's tip is a simple reminder that positive reinforcement is one of the best learning tools around when it comes to training your pup, or even your kitty. When you are teaching your furbaby a trick, rewarding them with a treat when they obey is one of the best ways to compel them to repeat that trick again in the future. Positive reinforcement is a simple yet effective way to train a furbaby, not to mention that it is a humane method that keeps everyone happy. That being said, please never use negative reinforcement or any form of physical punishment as a means of training. And each puppy and kitty has different learning curves, so please always have patience!
