Kids Stuff: For Kids of All Ages
Since Thanksgiving is on its way (here in the U.S. anyway) make a card for your dog, listing all the things you appreciate about him or her:
P.S. Make sure your dog doesn't EAT the card!!
Corinne from the U.K. asks:
Some questions and observations: 1. How steep is the ramp? 2. Has your collie been on it and had a bad experience? 3. Not sure that felt offers a good gripping surface, especially if the angle is a bit steeper 4. Is the wood sturdy enough so the ramp doesn't feel flimsy to her? 5. Is the ramp anchored or heavy enough so it doesn't slide around?
Some things to try: 1. First put the ramp just on the first step so it is at a very shallow angle (or even flat on the ground) 2. Put her favorite treat or dog food part way up the ramp and don't let her eat it from the side, she must get on the ramp to eat the food. Praise her for success. 3. When she has done this first step successfully, put the ramp on the next step and do the treat / food thing again. Lots of praise if she stays on the ramp and walks up to her food 4. Repeat with the next highest step until you have her all the way there
IMPORTANT - watch to see if she is slipping at all because that will make her fearful of being on the ramp
If the surface is too slippery, try the following: 1. Add lathe cross pieces about every 9 inches (225mm) or 2. Try fake grass carpet or 3. Old rubber bath mats or car mats with the ribbing crosswise to the ramp
Please let us know if this helps.
