Small Girl, Big Ideas

Of Training Raynor

As promised, here is the follow up to the post about training Teemo. Raynor is the elder sister to dear Teemo, and despite nearly everything I have ever read saying that beagles and basset hounds are difficult to train and never learn, she is definitely the easier of the two to train. Stubborn and smart, she will test anyone she meets surely to see what she can get away with. For instance, she listens to everything my mother says, but barely listens to my father whatsoever. Here are some of her fun little tricks.


Down and Sit :: Of course, just like Teemo, she can lay down and sit. She is the queen of sitting and can sit and stay for ever - until she is told 'come' or 'okay. She also knows watch me, come, stay, go to bed, crate, go get your momma, and a variety of other phrases.


Do A Circle :: So I wanted a dog that would roll over. But kind of like a turtle, Raynor is incapable of rolling on her back and gets stuck and flips out whenever it happens. So, she does the same trick I taught my first guinea pig.


Shake and Other Paw :: Raynor understands shake and to give the opposite paw when told. When there is a treat involved, she just starts randomly pawing the air, often just wapping Teemo in the head.

  2. Aww Raynor is such a cutie, and she seems to know a lot of tricks! I call Duke's crate his "batcave" he's somewhat got that "go to your batcave" means going to his crate

  9. It sounds like she has a fair amount of commands mastered (more than our dogs!) I love the idea of "go find your momma!" Cute.

    Also, I was more focussed on you and what you were wearing in your profile picture, I didn't even notice that Teemo and Raynor were all dress up! They are so cute!

  11. I love the gifs! Both my dogs were pretty well trained when I adopted them but teaching Tommy any new tricks is impossible. He's adorable but not the smartest little guy!

  15. I have a dachshund and seven years we've only made it as far as sit, lay, side, spin, and roll. We've been working on shake for years, but his little legs are so short he tips over.
