so a day in the life of mooka in the woods,we taught him to chance the canadian geese away only took 1.5 days of saying geese,and he would run like he was trying to win the race (boy they can run fast)you see these dam bird,yes i know they are our offical birds but holy what a pain they are,they live on the property next to us but come here to go to the bathroom and good what a mess)so even now if he is in the house and hears them scawking even if he is sound asleep the head goes up so high and the ears are straight up and he runs to the door and howls till we let him out and off he goes and in less than 3 seconds he is at the creek barking at them to go away and he stays there till they have all left and there is now about 30 of them,and on a funnier note when he is in the longer grass you can see him jumping up and down ,at first i thought he was just crazy then i realized he his chaning the frogs and jumping like they do boy he is such a character ,here is is sleeping with his other favorite girl(bella)who when they are running around outside he will start stalking her and then poff the chase is on, of course i am is first lol

I love it!  In Seattle there was much debate about ways to rid the parks of the geese.  Poison, traps,...many things were bandied around.  I thought, why not sell time slots to people with dogs?  The park would make money and get rid of their problem, no poison, no traps, and dogs would get to have a good run.

 

Funny about his frog jumping.

I don't have any geese but......

Birds...."Tolinka" watches the ducks, hawks, crows and other birds in the sky.....barks a grrrruff bark at them while prancing around.  He sits quietly for my hens. ;)

Birds...."Two Step" side steps the hens and just quietly watches them.  He can't see the birds in the sky or at least pretends he doesn't. :ph34r:

Birds....And then there is Rain...The hens got into my garden the other day and she had a ball chasing after them causing quite a flurry of birds, chasing them back and fourth barking, dodging and ducking until they all reached safety on the other side of the fence.  The other two sat with me quietly watching Rains circus act.     :lol:

So....... it was only Rain that chased the hens...the other two were watching her with me...I trained the other two not to chase the hens.  Now I gotta get on that one with Rain as well.

Oh.  So glad you told us it did not go well.  Not everything is perfect on the first try.  Otherwise, they would not call it "training", they would call it "telling".
