Old dog, new trick
Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? Tyler, who is 15 yrs. 4 mo. and 14 days, occasionally has difficulty coming up the back three steps after going out to do his business, as his eyesight isn't that great any more in certain lighting. DH decided to build him a wooden ramp with carpeting for traction, something that Tyler has never used before or ever seen before, for that matter. I lured him up a couple of times with treats and he came up very slowly and reluctantly. Several days went by without any training and then, low and behold, up he came all on his own while I was in the house looking out the window. Wow, I am so proud of him for using something brand new to him with minimal training. Havs rock!!!
