Since spraining my ankle I've had to leave the teaching of puppy Muffin to walk nicely to my partner and make do with a daily progress report of her progress and socialisation. My partner has had his instructions; Praise walking by your side. Praise wees and poos, note consistency of poo but don't make an issue about picking it up, I don't want her sampling it again, don't forget to take poop bags. Keep her by your side or in front but don't let her pull, sled dog training comes later. It's a no-no if she wants to go up the earth bank and jump off it, agility training also comes later. She can play in water but no swimming lessons yet please. So they came back today and I asked "has she been good?". "Yes, she's done a wee and a poo, and she walked nice without pulling, but she jumped off the stile at the end and.......erm.....she ate something, it might have been a funny shaped leaf......or a small rodent... I couldn't see, she wouldn't let me have it whatever it was. I can imagine those little jaws firmly clamped round her prize and that look that says "ha ha, I found it and I'm not letting you have it". What has your dog pinched or found and claimed as a prize?
