  • 🎤 For those that don't know, I'm a bit of a rap fan - always have been.
•
😂 I couldn't resist knocking out this mock album cover from 1988 - Boogie Down Productions.
•
🔊 "Teachers teach and do the world good
Kings just rule and most are never understood
If you were to rule or govern a certain industry
All inside this room right now would be in misery
No one would get along nor sing a song
'Cause everyone'd be singing for the king, am I wrong?"
•
🙏 And now, as is sure to be to everyone's great relief, we shall return to our regularly scheduled programming.

  • 🧠 When I was deciding which hashtag to use to showcase Boogies development it was down to a choice of two.
•
🏃‍♂️ It’s clear to see which choice I went with, but believe it or not the other front runner was #boogiegoesbang.
•
🎥 Watch this video, then hit me up in the comments if you can see why I’m second guessing myself now!

  • 👆Today’s first exposure and exercise session.
•
What’s the true lesson in this post?
•
1️⃣ Choose your pups breeder carefully - very carefully! Confidence and resilience seem to have some very strong genetic contributors.
•
2️⃣ The best genetics need development to manifest their potential. A good breeder is also going to need to be a skilled trainer with a ton of experience.
•
🧠 I didn’t build this dog you see in the clip - he came to me this way!

Enjoying a moment together with Snap and Kana

🥶 Man it’s cold in Melbourne today. 📧 I had to swing past the office this morning and knock out some emails, as well as finish a couple of reports. 🔥 I threw the heater on, but I knew from the way the dogs cuddled up closely on the couch that it wasn’t doing too […]

Anxiety in dogs cannot be ‘trained away’

💊 It’s a hard pill for some folks to swallow, but it’s 100% true. 🚫 If you punish the very behaviours that allow you to infer the dog is feeling anxious in the first place, then using the absence of that behaviour in that context as a basis to claim that the dog is no […]
