    One other thing I learned from my grandma about dogs or kids.........if you use two names to scold or call them.......it reinforces that you are angry and they can distinguish right from wrong a lot easier. Sooooooo when scolding use two names.(Like Chunk Instein) or (Chunk-Zilla) When rewarding just use Chunk. Trust me it over emphasis's your attitude and they catch on quicker.
    That has to be true because nothing makes Hudson get down to the ground with the "I'm sorry" look faster than my husband yelling DANGIT HUDSON (but put in a stronger word).

    That is GREAT advice! The name thing is wonderful - never thought of that! I put only his crate pad (which is supposed to be a self-warming pad for our drafty apt, just holds in his body heat), his blanket (he's had that since he was a puppy for comfort) and one bone. He was perfect today! Definitely going to use Chunk-instein or Chunk-zilla! So good! He usually gets - YOU'RE MAKING ME CRAZY YOU MONSTER!

    We went for a SUPER long walk today. He wanted to walk his old route which is way out by the bay - he hasn't done it since it snowed because he hates the cold - and was ready to walk more! So we kept walking til he was ready to go in. Yay!
    You can close your eyes to things you don't want to see,
    but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel.

    Live Genuinely
