Dianna Murphy 11/10/2010 8:27:17 AM

Erica this is gorgeous. Try what I do with my dogs... I use a peanut butter jar as they love peanut butter and know the jar. They come to attention as soon as they see it. Only problem is some drooling while their waiting. Of course when I'm done they get their spoon full which they love licking off the spoon. #9025702

Erica Murphy level-classic 11/10/2010 10:01:15 AM

Thanks Dianna! It's not the treats that are the problem, a squeaky toy would do the job just as well. Just high strung and very active and if I'm around they want to be as close to me as possible. Makes it hard to get a nice portrait of them. #9025843
