Today I put the pool out for Rox and Jackson. Roxie loves the water, I have a kiddies pool and put three buckets of water. Jackson isn't a huge fan because he's never really been exposed to it.
We were all out there and Dad got a bucket, tipped half the water into the pool and left the other half. He threw the toy in the water to see if Jackson would get it. He tried but was shaking lol, so we let Rox get it. Same again. The third time, he circled and circled the bucket. We were egging him on, he was wagging his tail. Next thing he puts his paw in the bucket and tips it over!! He got his toy out and we laughed for a good five minutes
An hour ago Jackson wouldn't go near the water. Now he's running in and out of it It's amazing what a bit of exposure and positive reinforcement does.
Roxie does a dive into the pool and skids from one side to the other. It's a small pool but somehow she still manages.
What funny things have your / do your dogs do?
