Training Treats: Limp, Part 1

Hi guys! I have started one of the trickiest tricks to teach Scout– the limp. Because it’s complicated, I’ve divided it into parts. Enjoy part 1!


How To Own A Dog

A dog is easy to own as long as you have the right stuff for the right dog.

Here are the things you need:

  1. Money (You need money to help pay for your dog’s vet bills and food)
  2. Food
  3. Bowl
  4. Collar
  5. Leash
  6. Microchip (A microchip is one of the most needed things)
  7. A Yard (I would like a dog to always have a yard to play in)
  8. Spayed/Neutered
  9. Exercise
  10. Love
  11. Long term commitment
  12. Vaccines
  13. Time  (to spend with dog)

Here is a story about a Dachshund dog who seems like did not get all of these things. We first noticed him when I was working on some math, and he was casually trotting down the street. So, I went outside and called him, “Come on, boy. Come on.” He immediately came shaking his little booty over to me. Then he started to head to my neighborhor’s house so I went to their driveway and tried to coax him over to me. My mom came out with some treats and I tossed them over and he came closer. I saw that he had no collar, and he wasn’t neutered. Then he trotted into our yard like a spiffing little man and sat down. We kept tossing treats until he was eating out of our hand. My mom was trying to get the leash over his head.  We could never get him on the leash. But then he went through the bars on our fence right into our back yard. But then Cody and Scout opened the door on their own and came barreling out toward them like a tornado. He ran right back out of our gate. Sadly we were still not able to get the leash over his neck. The next day after horseback riding I said we should go look for him in the neighborhood. I actaully spotted in someone’s yard on the next street. My mom stopped the car but just then he barked at the door and SOMEONE opened it and let him in. So, this makes me think that this is is OWNER, and I am very unhappy about this. We have heard that other people have seen this dog wandering around the neighborhood. This is dangerous. When he was on our street, he was near what I call Blood Street where at least 2 animals have gotten killed. So, if he gets out again, I am taking him back to the owners and telling them they can not let their dog out to run around the neighoborhood without a leash. If it happens again, I will have to take the dog to a shelter because he needs a better owner.



This is the dog whose owner possibly let him roam into bad places
