It is so Awesome to See How Dogs Train One Another

I have time to think and to watch while I am cleaning the kennels.  It dawned on me that many of the dogs here at 12 Hills socialize and train each other.  Sandy, welcomes and gives special attention to the sad puppies coming in.  Bertha has been here awhile—and welcomed Choco–playing ball with him and wrestling.  Choco is training Snicker and Doodle (our feral dogs) to trust people and to run and play in the kennel.  I could go on and on. 

Tyla (female black Lab) came out of the kennel this week and Pee Wee reprimands her when she jumps on me.  I am hoping that the training works for her and she learns to stay on all fours. 

These observations or discoveries may not be interesting or news to anyone–but thought I would share them—like I said, lots of time to think when in the kennel. Doodle came out of the kennel and sat by Ursula the German Shepherd. Guess he adopted her.Image

  1. Nola, I know just what you mean. We adopted Bandit (now Louis) from you a week after Easter. Our other dog Dottie has finished “training” him to go up and down the stairs. He took a long time to have the confidence to go down the stairs, but Dottie finally coaxed him down with his favorite toy earlier this week. Now he is thundering both ways! It really is interesting to watch.
