It was near 70 degrees today. I’m not complaining but a bit odd for late February. Besides the usual morning walk, I took Leo out this afternoon or 10 minutes of hardcore sprints up and down the block. He gets beyond exciting when he sees my put on my roller blades. Personal note: I do not recommend everyone tries going up and down the block with their dog while wearing rollerblades. There is a special amount of trust and communication you must have with your dog to do this. You also should be pretty damn comfortable on rollerblades and know how to bring yourself and the dog to a complete stop quickly.
On any given day all kinds of fun things wash up along the rocks of the Verrazano channel during low tide. Today Leo scored himself a brand new Adidas soccer ball.
I got an awesome photo of me and my dog Leo today in the mail. The people at NYC traffic enforcement are too kind. Heads up my friends now in addition to red light cameras there are cameras that track your speed.
We have been working on this trick for a long time. Last night it all came together for the first time.
There are few parts to this trick. First, you must get the dog to be very steady. Next he must know that he can not eat the dog biscuit until you give him the command. These two steps are fairly easy. They took a few weeks of training and trying the trick on and off. It was the final part of the trick, catching the dog biscuit in the air that took as a long time to figure out. And ultimately Leo needed to figure it out, not us. So without further ado here is our dog Leo doing the complete Dog Biscuit On The Nose Trick.
