Well, I was told that Thursday was my final testing, so I had to show off and get a perfect score. The parole board said that they have reviewed and decided that I am now eligible to be adopted. Now we just have to give my big puppy dog eyes to my new family and hope they fall for it like all these suckers did! ;)
Dear future forever family,
This week was swap week and one of the trainers had the opportunity to spend some quality time with CHASE! He had no problems whatsoever with separation anxiety or doing his commands for strangers. They enjoyed having him for swap week while he just strutted around being loved on. He is so smart and adapts very well, very quickly. There’s only one more week to go before he gets to come home to YOU, so be ready to have a loving greyhound by your side!
Hi humans! So here’s the thing, I know all of my basic commands and am learning a few extras. The kicker is I’m not getting as many treats as I used to. This kind of upsets me, but I am getting extra kibble at meal times so I guess it’s okay. I can’t decide if my inmate trainer has gotten forgetful or if I need to retrain him to dispense treats more often.
I hear I’m going to a furever home soon. I’m not sure exactly what it is, but I hope they have soft beds, lots of treats, and toys. It’s fun to daydream about it all and I can’t wait!
Welcome back into another week into my life. I’m having a blast here! My trainer took me on their small yard the other day and tossed a ball around with me. I had so much fun chasing it! I’m really enjoying the opportunity to get some running time in, and now I have some better toys to play with! I think my time here is coming to an end and I get to meet my forever family soon… I’m so excited! I can’t wait to see where my life will head from here!
Making my way to graduation! It’s week 6 people!
I’ve been working with my secondary inmate trainer this week. He’s pretty cool. I’ve taught him to give me kibble after each command request. He’s doing really well! I like to show him how to play with toys. Those squeaky things are a lot of fun! My inmate trainer doesn’t really put them in his mouth the way I do. He just squeaks them with his human paws. I keep telling him he needs to put those things in his teefies!
I’ve been working on the bed command with my new trainer… meaning I’m trying to get him to let me try out his human bed. I mean, I need to test its softness and all. So far he hasn’t gotten the hang of this request yet.
Well I gotta run. I heard someone mention belly rubs and I can’t miss out on that! Later!
Welcome back to another week into my life! I’m having a blast here learning commands so I can impress my forever family. My trainer told me this week that I’ve been adopted!!! I have no clue what that means but he seems excited for me.
I got excited, too, and he gave me some milk bones. I LOVE milk bones and hopefully my forever family will have plenty around! I’ve been learning some extra commands this week: paws up and spin, and I learned them in just two days! Hopefully I’ll learn more next week. Until then!!!
Another week has come and gone. Chase has been learning to jump and walk up and down stairs this week! His inmate trainer says that Chase wasn’t too sure about either of these new things, but after some consideration (and treats) he gave it a try and did really well!
Chase’s inmate trainer says that he’s very proud of Chase! He knows most all of his commands with verbal and hand signal cues! He’s one smart boy who is sure to bring happiness to his new family.
Hey guys! Welcome back to another week into my retirement life. You may not know this yet, but my name is Chase! I’m still enjoying myself here at Jenkins. I’ve learned more commands this week and have picked up on them very quickly. I’m ready to learn more and more great things! I’m still learning how to jump, and I start on the stair command this weekend. Wish me luck! I’m excited to see what that’s all about. Hopefully there are treats involved…
Welcome back Chase fans! Man! This week I learned a new trick/command called “sit”. I picked it up rather quick because I am extremely smart. Well, it could have been because my trainer fed me some yummy treats with peanut butter! How I love me some peanut butter!!! I’m working on some other commands too, but this “sit” thing is my favorite.
I’m starting to get the hang of these squeaky things they call toys, but not as much as PEANUT BUTTER!! Well, until next week….later!
Well, it looks like my new name is Chase! I don’t know why I’m called that. I guess it goes along with my racing name. “Chasing Paper”…. Chase for short. I’m still trying to adjust to this big change in my life. My trainer is very nice to me and feeds me treats when I do things he asks of me. Honestly, if it weren’t for the treats, I might not think he was that cool. I’m just kidding, he’s a good guy. He is teaching me all sorts of stuff and I think I’m picking up on it pretty quickly!
Well, that is all for now. Check back next week and see what else is going on! Another day, another Dollar.
