Greetings and salutations! If you are an animal lover you should stick with me! My name is Veronica and my favorite type of animal is a dog. I love how dogs have good energy and are fun to be around. Some dogs love to swim! Here is Mrs. Yollis’ dog Buck swimming in the Yakima River!
Training a Dog
I have taken my dog to obedience school. It was where the dogs got to meet other dogs and learn simple tricks. For example, a trick they learned was “sit”. It is a very simple trick to learn. Training pets can be hard but with the help of a trainer, you can get your dog to look great and make people say, “Wow! Look at that trained dog! I wish my dog was that trained”
You can also bring your dog to Doggy Day Care. Doggy Day Care is where you send your pup to learn tricks and have fun! There can be large or small dogs there. Some dogs bark a lot, but some dogs are very quiet! My dog Olaf is car sick, so he has a hard time getting to school. However, he does love the dogs when he gets there. One of the tricks he learned was “Roll over.” He also learned “lay down.”
You will know there are do’s and don’ts. Sometimes you have to do things you don’t want to do. I’m sure your parents have told you, “It takes a lot of responsibility to have a pet.” One of the worst things to do is clean up after them. (You know what I mean.)
It took me a long time to prove to my parents that I could be responsible. Finally, I got a great Pyrenees and I named him Olaf. He is now full grown and weighs 115 pounds! I also have a fish named King. He is a betta fish. You can see my pets here. I feed King six pellets a day. They are very small pellets, so I have to be careful while counting.
