HER new trick!


Bella and I have been training HER.
Every night Bella goes into the garden, finds a frog and harrasses it until it makes a high-pitched, clicking sound. (She hates that.)
When I hear the sound I run and stare at HER.....sometimes giving my attention growl.
Now Bella can only be enticed away from the frog with a treat.  So SHE starts yellin', "Wanna a treat? (or cheese)"
Bella leaves the frog and we all get a treat while she shuts the door.
Took awhile, but SHE's finally got it!


  1. THEY are difficult to train, aren't they.
    Daisy, Kendra, & Bella... I want to be sure to wish you a Very Much Yappy New EARS.
    Now that you have taught HER a trick, I am sure your New Ears will be just FULL of new Tricks.. and Tons of Rewards. hehehe

    Nubbin wiggles,

  6. That's a great trick that you've taught her!

  7. Yep, its all in the training!! But HEY!! Its a tough job but we hafta do it!!


  8. You are good trainers, I must woof. I suppose it helps to have a team on the job, too, doesn't it. Anyhoo...great job!

    lotsa licks, Lola

  9. Haha, those humans are kinda slow, but most of them can be trained, with a lot of patience!


  10. I got to hand it to you ladies, you are such great trainers. I need to get some training tips from you.

  11. Hello, ladies! We're just catching up after being away over Christmas. First question: aren't a lot of your frogs poisonous? Hope the one you're using for training isn't. Second question: how did your zoo-zoo pet last so long? If we got one of those, it would be in little pieces by now - inside Jed's tummy. Yours just looks a little muddy from playing in the yard. Must be tough little critters. Finally, our paper holiday cards arrived after we left, so they won't be mailed until tomorrow. So look for your card probably sometime around Valentine's Day. Sorry!

  12. That's a skill set all of its won.

  13. Hiya girls,

    Oh well done - we are most impressed! We've never tried frog training before and since you've shown it to be so sucessful we're gonna give it a go when (if!) summer finally rolls round over again. We applaud you girls - beauty and brains - sigh!! - you're the real deal!!
