Until Somebody Gets Hurt

Tricks are fun until somebody gets hurt. For instance, Reagan can shake paws. Cute right?

Let us just say that Reagan has a firm paw shake and if you are not ready to grip it you get clawed instead. Not cute...

Ouch. I've made it a point to not teach my pups to shake. This seems to be a common injury for dogs that do shake and I get steped on enough from my crew on accident let alone something I've asked them to do.

My Sadie does that to me too. She starts "boxing" when she is hungry. So I have gotten many a bruise from her too!

hah Barbie's version of shake is her rolling onto her back and offering her paw... I taught it to her by accident... ;P

Oh yeouch! We're dealing with that hear with Morgan at the moment. It does keep you on your toes!

Marge is a paw-slapper, too, but I haven't suffered anything like that (yet)!

That doesn't look good! I tend not to teach tricks much like hand shakes & jump ups ect... Save myself the injuries I think !

Augh!! Walter is the same way -- I always give a warning when people ask him to shake hands...
