Forget About It Friday

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. Today, I’m not taking off my Sheriff’s hat. I’m just adding one on today. Class is in session for your dog. And every Friday. Today’s lesson is one that all dogs should learn. Today is Forget About It Friday when we take a command that the persons give us that we ignore. Because it’s Forget About It Friday.

Today’s Lesson:

Why You Should Ignore The Persons Who Tell You To Stop Barking At Delivery Trucks

1. Delivery trucks will go away if you bark at them. They are on our property. It is our duty. If we didn’t bark, they would never go away. Good job. Don’t bark? Forget about it!

2. Delivery trucks make the most annoying and loud sounds. We bark so that we cannot hear that. Bark louder if you need to. Turn up the volume if you need to. Keep on keeping on with the barking. Don’t bark? Forget about it!

3. Our barking diverts attention away from the fact you’ve been staring out the window waiting on those Swedish fish for hours.

Don’t bark? Forget about it!

4. Barking at the delivery trucks helps the drivers not get carpal tunnel because without us, they would have to press that doorbell over and over again.

Don’t bark? Forget about it!

5. The most important part of this Forget About It Friday lesson? The delivery truck must be barked at for them to remember they must give us treats.

If they are scared at the barking, they can throw them out the window at us. That’s acceptable. Don’t bark? Forget about it!

As you can see, our first lesson was a very important one. Homeschool for dogs may be an overlooked curriculum. But in the days to come, we aim to make it our goal to help your dog understand how valuable he or she is. And make us all better dogs in the process.

If your dog was a star student today, let us know. We will be picking two students at random to win a bottle of our new Happy Camper Travel Size Shampoo! Comment on the blog, or our social media posts!

Did you hear that? It’s the bell ringing! School is adjourned until next Friday. I expect all my students to come prepared with no pants on and ready to learn!

Some may think school for dogs is unnecessary. But so is negativity. And we have enough of that right now. We aim to lift you up with what we know how to do best. Be ourselves. And you can be yourself too. Come here when you’re down, lonely or sad. And let your dog know too. We’ve already received straight a’s in therapy. Let us do our magic. Stay well, friends.

Home School For Dogs Is Now In Session

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. School is now in session.

But you’ve had enough to worry about lately. You don’t have to attend. But your dog should.

It occurred to me that since everyone is at home, even the two legged children, school is important. Parents are trying to teach their kids. Kids are trying not to listen. And everyone is stressed out. But what you may not realize, and I can almost guarantee this, is that you have a star student right in your house.

A student who is willing to learn. A student that is all ears. Your dog.

Yes. Your dog. A student that will eat his homework if it’s not done on time. That way, you don’t have to grade it.

We also sleep most of the day away, have nap times, require you to take us for walks at recess and we need plenty of snacks, which makes it appropriate for you to snack with us. If not, that would be rude. You have to know your manners!

So Digby and I decided that during the next month, every Friday, we will have a lesson for your dog.

You don’t have to do a thing but let them watch and learn. Some say dogs don’t want to learn. I highly disagree.

What will we teach on Fridays?

It could be teaching your dog about travel. Or about how to ignore a dog trick. Or how to steal that cookie on the counter. Or how to make a dog friendly recipe. We are up for suggestions on this week’s lesson, which will be tomorrow, Friday at noon ET on our Facebook page.

We don’t want YOUR suggestions. But your dog’s suggestions. What is something that they have always wanted to learn? I know it all. I’m ready to teach. Is your dog ready to learn?

During this time, many of us are stressed out. This is something me and Digby decided that we wanted to do. And let’s face it. We’ve all got some free time. We may even throw in some extra lessons for extra credit during the week.

So get ready for school. We don’t require uniforms to attend ours. In fact, you don’t even need to wear pants.
