Bentley gives the Woofstick two paws up!

August 22, 2012

Bentley after playing with the Woofstick for five minutes

Bentley’s mom needed to be gone all day, so she scheduled two visits today instead of our usual one. Even though the weather has cooled down quite a bit, and thought our afternoon visit would be the perfect time to introduce Bentley to the Woofstick. Jack Russell Terriers were originally bred to hunt foxes, but are also used to hunt a variety of other small animals, and are quite tenacious. So I figured that with Bentley’s hunting instinct he would love the Woofstick, and I was right. He immediately started chasing it around the room, and every time he got a hold of it he would give it a little shake and get a death grip on it. Fortunately, he was quite happy to drop it and sit every time I offered him a treat, which is a great way to reinforce his obedience. Within minutes, Bentley was panting heavily and quite happy to take a break. And I’m pretty sure he took a nap after I left.
