Traing with our Cuz's




Well after the stretching training ,my couch I mean coach was trying to remember what the next phase of training was....he was concentrating really hard while he was looking out the window for intruders...I was sitting patiently waiting for my next assignment.....



Of course... he shouted out...the next part of your training is the Cuz training.. and I will have to participate as well to show you what to do( don't be fooled the Cuz is one of his FAVORITE toys because he loves the nosies it makes...) He said this will be similar to catching the rats( which I don't do as they are in little cages but what the heck.... it sounded like fun.....)He went first....watch his superb technique......especially with the little paw action in there.....





Now it is my turn..watch closely because in this exercise I have to delicately balance the cuz between the chair and the bed in the air.... I can do it for a brief time but still have ALONG way to go in my training......

Hi Agatha and Archie,

I may just take you up on your kind offer to come to Boston to escape my little brother. I even though I am a bird dog, I could practice the earth dog training too. It looks like a lot of fun.

Your friend,
Niamh

Ags! Your world is very blue, but in a happy way.

I am very sad that I didn't get to go to NY with mom, but maybe I will get to go back to Boston this spring.

First of all, CUZ are THE BEST TOYS EVER. Seriously, I just love them. You guys both have great techniques, but I am just amazed your Cuzs still squeak!!

Hi A & A!

Archie I am bewildered by you training techniques. your right, you can't train if not feeling safe. Agatha should no you must fend off all intruders...

I love that toy! I have to tell you.. the other day when it was raining.. a HUGE Rat! walked right by us on our walk. Quite the tease. Then Mr. Skunk came by. It was quite the varmint filled morning. Good thing I was on my leash... well that's what mom says.

What a lovely day! I saw a crocus but my mom bought it from the grocery store. Does that count? When is your earth dog day event? It's in gardner. not too far from me. We may be interested to check it out ?

Squeek Squeek!

Hehe, very cute videos! We have a little orange Cuz and a big red one, we don't play with either as they don't smell like rabbit poo. Do you like rabbit poo? We do.

Ciao A+A!

Those Cuz toys are favuloso, and Archie, your training technique is top notch -- it's no wonder Agatha is doing so well! Eccellente work, A+A.

I have a toy called a Whirly Wheel, and it makes a MAGNIFICO amount of squeaky noise, a lot like your Cuz toys. Mia ragazza always seems to reach for the Vitamin I (ibuprofen!) when I run into the room with it ...giggle!!!

Tanti baci!

Stupid blogger. Played Archies vid but only a few seconds of yours Twinny. How's this dog to learn new techniques? Boy oh Boy don't you think Cuz's are the best...till they loose their squeaks...they I never play with them again. Even if they beg me to.

Excellent technique by Archie though Twinnie. Teaching you paw and eye co-ordination and working the jaw muscles. Conveniently in bed at the same time...what could be better.

Wiry wags and lovies and kissies. Eric xx

this looks like some really good training. Archie did a fine job of demonstrating and you, Agatha, are getting the hang of it really well. if the cuz were the rat, he would definitely be squeaking with that treatment.

woofs.

Hi you two! Aren't cuz just the best thing ever?

I lurve my blue one, although I am afraid to say it does have a wee bit of a very tiny hole in it nowadays.

Has your snow gone yet?

Mine has, and it has been very springlinke the past few days.
