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.
