Training with Merrick Power Bites

We've been doing a lot of training recently.  Trying to get Coco to not eat people while we are walking is a hard task.  While the strategies Bruce from Groovy Dogs gave us have helped a lot, she still has some...trouble.

When we go for walks, we always have treats with us.  And sometimes, depending on the situation, we give her quite a few treats at once.  That's why we like treats like Power Bites from Merrick. These small treats are so easy to take with us on walks and Coco loves them so it is easy to get her attention with them, which is essential when training! The one downside is that they smell, which daddy doesn't like because it makes his precious little hands stink.  However, I'm pretty sure the odor is one of the selling points for Coco.


We can ALWAYS count on chewy.com for bringing us quality treats and shipping them to us before Coco eats everyone in the neighborhood! Thanks chewy.com!

Baseball Season is Here!

Baseball season is the best time of year in our house.  Even Coco likes to snuggle up and watch the games.  Bill and I argue over which team Coco roots for.  Of course I'm a Yankees fan, and Bill is stinkin' Red Sox fan.  There is no doubt that Coco loves her Mommy's favorite team as much as she loves her Mommy. And we know how much Coco loves Mommy.

Are you all as excited as we are about baseball season?

How Do You Bond With Your Dog?

Recently I wrote a blog post about how to strengthen the bond with your dog.  I wrote about games you can play to become closer to your best friend, but there are many more ways to stay close.

When Coco was small, I made sure that she was physically close to me at times--cuddling on my chest and getting lost of belly rubs.  I really think to has lots to do with why she is such a mamma's girl.

How do you stay bonded with your dog?
