Practicing Sits with Stays



I was worried about PeeWee flunking out of graduate school because he cannot do the two minute sits with stays.

Helpful chap, that I am, I went online to order the proper equipment and even offered to practice with him.

Gosh, this is harder than it looks and the equipment kind of pinches my Mango-ness.














Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Several alert readers sent me this most useful link where you can get your very own cow milky toy things. Enjoy!

I've never done it, but Frankie says you two are doing a grrreat job. So sad to hear your bro is "disgracing" you Mango, but we love him the way he is really.
Love you, Dexter!!!

Did you know my momma had to wear one of those cor-sit thingies with stays in a play one time? And she said her eyes looked just like yours do, Mango! I better go practice mine so I don't have to wear one of those!

Mango, watch out! Your eyes are about to pop out of your head!

I agree with PeeWee.. I think you're doing the sit-stay thing the wrong way. This way looks most painful.

Mr Koda MD said...

You are very dedicated Mango!!!!

I don't see why a dog should sit, or stay for that matter. Its either lounge about or follow like a shadow...

I hear the student life can be pretty exhausting....

Marjie said...

Poor guy, having your Mango-ness pinched. This is wrong, and I'm going to have my momma send a letter of protest to your momma.

Drools,

Pee-Ess: the word is "cult sit". Is that what you must endure?

Maggie and Mitch said...

Gosh, we hope the two of you are okay after stuffing yourselves into that corset-sausage thingie!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

McGillicutty said...

Mango, man! You're a genius. Me thinks I'll order one for me own sit-stays, or do you reckon me muffur's SPANX will work?! I can "stay" fine, but I would MUCH rather lay down, so me mom has to constantly remind me to "straighten"... sheeesch who cares, right? But, I just found out last night that I graduated---hooray!!! On to Level 2!!! I'm so vain blathering on about meself, but I'm Irish!!! Sending lots of zen for Dex's 2 minuter!!!

Oh, and thanks for the cow toy link! We'll have to order once me pulled CL heals.

Irish Love,
McG

Sierra Rose said...

Udder TUGS!!!?? What are they?
Hmmmmmm....Mango, your eyes are about to burst with the corset! Did it work for the sits and downs???? We've been practicing too. I'm not that great at them, but don't think I would put up with the bodywear!! :)

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Dennis the Vizsla said...

I'm considering trying one of those udder things for Dennis, but the vizslas seem partial to fleece toys so I'm not sure how it would work out. Maybe I can get one and stuff it inside a fleece toy ...

Tobi said...

Something tells me that Dexter and Mango are much better at Sit with Stays than Clementine and Bluebonnet are.

Something also tells me that you are a better trainer at this than I am.
