Peanut Butter, Fetch!!

Posted by: Roxy - Print This Post Print This Post

Photos to come.  And they’ll be cute.  I just have to figure out how to manage the camera, the puppy, and the toy all at once.

Now, my loyal readers know I can’t say enough good things about our personal puppy nanny 911, Justine Schuurmans of The Family Dog. She’s helped us through housebreaking, separation anxiety, and basic training commands such as sit, down, wait, and stay. Now the fun begins!

When I was growing up, I had a wonderful beagle-terrier mutt named Penny. Penny was truly my best friend, but for the fifteen years of her life, she deprived me of one of the greatest joys of the puppy-child bond: playing fetch. Penny loved to fetch, all right, but she had no interest in bringing a ball or toy back to me. Nope, she would take that toy and chew on it, run with it, play with it, never realizing how much fun it might be if she brought it back to me and let me throw it again and again.

In one simple lesson, Justine taught London, Maddie, and me how to make sure Peanut Butter will fetch… the proper way.  The girls and I have been having a blast throwing balls, frisbees, and other dog toys around the yard and having Peanut Butter bring them back to us without delay.  Once I post the photos, you may figure out the trick Justine taught us, but I’d still recommend that you give her a call… The Family Dog makes dog and puppy training fun for the whole family.
