Caylin and Saison's first trial of 2022

You know it's been crazy busy when it takes me this long to share the kids' agility runs. I didn't save Charlie and Marzen's runs from last weekend. Marzen is such a tough dig, especially in the winter and while Charlie loves him and is such a good sport they had a really rough weekend. We have some plans to make March go better and we got to work today.

A week after Saison and Koli destroyed my sheets, we did a pretty hard weave pole session and then went for a 4.5 mile walk. They were all pretty tired so I didn't think anything of leaving them alone at the house for 2 hours to run some errands, but once again we came back to a bed moved out of place and torn sheets and again it was only Kolsch and Saison loose. The best I can tell a game of bitey face/queen of the mountain got out of hand,l. This time, I was angry. After a couple of hours of stomping around and grumbling I came up with a plan that would fix many of our current dog issues: A DOG ROOM. I had thought about it for years, but it wasn't a priority. This bad behavior pushed us into action. The dogs split their time at the kennel and had been fine so to save space we didn't have crates at the house for all of them. Now everyone has a crate when they are at the here and they have a whole room we can put them in when we don't want to lock them up but want them out of the way. I'm sure if Saison knew that was the last straw that would limit her access to the rest of the house, she would have deep regrets. Instead, she probably just thinks we're being a-holes by insisting she be crated when we leave. With three more humans in the house this has also cut down on the chaos when kids are coming and going. This is where management AND training is key to dog ownership. Training alone will only get you so far. I plan to teach them to go to this room when they hear someone at the door. So follow along for that.

Hey everyone! Warning! We are going through a mini mud season. I've been trying to keep the dogs mostly inside to play but they have to go out to potty and they take full advantage of the puddles. As hard as I try they are gonna be damp and a bit dirty. I'm toweling them off best I can but be ready for some lil swamp monsters.

We had a great catch up with our sister dogs. The reds are definitely overwhelming the blacks these days and I have no immediate plans to balance out the numbers.

We take credit cards now. I blame imposter syndrome for the hesitancy to set it up. We're almost 5 years old and I have all of these licenses and certifications, but it still doesn't feel really real sometimes. Anyways, you can pay by card here or through pawpartner.com now

Let me tell you a story about these two. Sunday morning, we left the house with only these two loose. We took care of the boarding dogs at the kennel, ran some errands, and went to brunch. We weren't gone terribly long, but when I walked into my bedroom upon our return, my bed was askew, my sheets were ripped, my mattress had several teeth punctures in it, and my training bag had been relieved of its contents. Poor Shandy, who was crated next to my bed (because she's a slower eater) was so worked up by the obvious commotion her sisters created that she nervously poo-ed all over her bed in her kennel. Neither of these dogs have had destructive tendencies in the last two years. I was completely shocked. So number one, no dogs are perfect or 100% trustworthy 100% of the time. Number two I have a management problem to address. While there are training tools to help your dog be comfortable when you leave when it comes to these behaviors that happen when you're gone, management is typically the answer. Whatever wild game they were playing while we were out was probably super fun and very reinforcing, so to prevent bad habits, these girls are going to lose some freedom for a while. It's possible it was a one-time error of judgment, but I'm not going to take that risk.

We have a 7 mo. old Goldendoodle mini. Would you consider training him ? We would be open to having him stay for a couple of weeks if that would make it easier to train him. He has had some training already but need help with jumping and "stay" and "down" Please let me know if you are interested in helping us make Tucker a better pet! He's adorable too!
I try to spotlight the businesses that I frequent & adore… But this one is extra special, Heel.Sit. has had our heeler Hooey for the past week & I can already tell from the video he is really starting to channel some of his energy into such better behavior! If your dog is in need of some new skills, please consider going to see Cara at Heel.Sit.
I'm hiring again if you know of anyone that is looking for something part-time. We're heading in a new direction coming in to 2022 with more training and enrichment and I'm looking for the right people to help get us there.
We're having a Heel.Sit Hogwarts Halloween. Feel free to take the quiz for your dog even if they can't participate in the actual sorting event.
We're having a Harry Potter themed Halloween at Heel.Sit. Feel free to take the quiz even if your dog can't attend!
Thanks so much for your support we really appreciate it more than you know
UPDATE... Maverick is SAFE, Troy was able to pick him up and get him to Heel.Sit. in East Moline. Huge thank you to Cara! “Wow, Jessie this boy is so sweet and loving” said Troy... thank you so much for all the help, support, & love for Maverick. We have had a lot of people wanting to foster & adopt Maverick so I’m attaching our application. Please feel free to feel out and I will be in touch! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfzPnE_Y7CzBGCUCNLKn-j4GETxNDwwP_1ockKO0wUabHUCTg/viewform Tammy Mullins URGENT... Sweet Maverick was so excited to go to his new home last night. Unfortunately, after an 8+ hour transport to Moline, Illinois, he had a few accidents in his new home, and his adopters want him moved immediately. He was previously fostered in my home and he is house broken, but they want him removed immediately or they are threatening to take him to the shelter. We need to find someone to temporarily foster this sweet dog to get him out of this situation. Please help us get Maverick to a safe place. Cissy Heppel Linda Money Sarah Fellows Please share this plea for Maverick
If you think these cookies are cute you should see the real deal! 😍🐶 Cara at Heel.Sit.. Is AMAZING!! If you are looking for dog training/pet care this is the place!
SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY: We are proud to work with dozens of small businesses throughout the Quad City area who use their own resources to give back to the pets in our care. Originally, we wanted to feature and thank all of them individually on Small Business Saturday, but don't think Facebook would like us posting 30 times in one day. We will do what we can to split them into two separate posts today! We keep extensive lists of our supporters, and believe we have included everyone here but if you notice someone missing-do not hesitate to send us a message so we can adjust. Today doesn't have to be the only important day to support your local businesses, and next time you require a service that someone who supports our shelter provides- just know that a portion of their profits, products or talents are going right back into the community they live and work in. Help us thank these fantastic businesses by shopping with them! Amato Plastering & Drywall, Inc.
