to all those people that gave me ideas of how to get my two whippets to like their clam shells, my girl has just 'returned' from a ten minute voluntary diving session!
I have been putting frankfurts into the shell to encourage them to use it and they both will if I am there. They grab the food and run off and eat it never to return.
Today however I pulled the curtain aside to check that the dogs were ok and what do I see but Milie ducking and diving on her own with no food and no 'parental supervision'!! I think she would have gone on longer but a couple of my kids spotted her and started laughing so she got distracted and went all barney instead.
So again Thank You to everyone that gave me tips Millie and I are very grateful. AND it goes to show you can teach an old dog new tricks - Millie is 8/9 and this was the first time she has actually enjoyed being around water.
