I was watching a program that we have here in the UK called 'It's me or the dog' the other night. Its basically where people who have naughty, aggressive, rampant or disobedient dogs call up this lady who is a dog training specialist and she comes to their house and teaches them how to control their dog or dogs.
The other night there was a man and woman who were told that they couldnít have kids a few years ago so instead got three dogs which included 2 very boisterous Labradors and an old tired Staffordshire bull terrier. After having the dogs for a couple of years the woman miraculously became pregnant and had a little girl. The dogs then became a problem jumping around the baby and pulling on the lead while the mum was pushing the pram etc. So the specialist arrived and said that the dogs didnít get enough exercise so introduced this bubble machine. Itís a machine that blows out loads of bubbles but it is specially made for dogs with liquid that smells and tastes like bacon and is totally not toxic or in any way harmful to the dog! How good is that?? The dogs were loving jumping around in the garden chasing the bubbles, it kept them entertained and quiet, they collapsed on the floor later on it tired them out so much!
I had a look on ebay and you can buy them for around £25 and they liquid stuff (which you can get in a few different flavours) is a further £10. Iím thinking of getting one for my bfís dog because I know he doesnít get walked as much as he needs to with us being at work all the time and his mumís not really fit any more, that why heís always running off!!
