My Spot

Dog daycare VictoriaLittle Eva in her favourite sleeping spot! If someone has the nerve to occupy HER bucket Eva will lounge in another spot and sleep with one eye open. As soon as the other dog gets up she’ll swoop in and reclaim her rightful throne!

Girl knows what she wants!

Perfect Spot

Victoria doggie daycareThat is Oden, Boston and Rancher Shannon’s legs!

From Rancher Shannon:

Boston tends to lean right there when I stand at this spot working on the Dog Walking List. He often gets a nice back or ear scratch when positioned there.

Well played, Boston… well played!

Mama’s Girl

IMG_9478_smallIt’s Rancher Sam’s Zara, looking pretty in pink!

Zara’s very good buddy is Peanut, and they enjoys a good wrestle whenever they can… but at the end of the day Zara is really an all around mama’s girl.

IMG_9611_smallThis handsome lad is Brutis, a Black & Tan Coonhound/Lab mix.

Brutis is a very happy go lucky dog who loves to play tug of war with Oden. He is never afraid to let us know whats on his mind by letting out the signature hound dog bay.

Ball Hound

IMG_9535_smallHello Ellie!

Ellie LOVES playing with the ball. If you’re ready to throw it, she’s game!

Here are some variations on the traditional game of fetch:

– Hide & Seek: Rather than throwing the ball, bury it in a blanket. Put it at the edge of the blanket at first to make it an easy target and then once your pup gets it, make it harder and harder to get to. Kayloo loves this game!

– Hide & Seek II: For the particularly savvy take things up a notch! Get your pooch to sit and stay and then hide the ball in various locations around the house. My dogs have no interest in this game… but I know lots that do!

Do you have any other  ball related games you like to play with your dog?
