When we went to our orientation for Baxter's puppy school two weeks ago, they mentioned that this will be an 8 week course and at the puppy's graduation he will be expected to do a "trick" in front of everyone! When my Lab went when she was a puppy she retreived very well and played ball. With a Basset, what trick do they do well? I'm trying to figure out what he might excell in other than drool and the Basset 500!! If anyone has any ideas I'd appreciate it. By the way, the Lab I refer to (Sarah Lee) will be 15 years old on Sunday and we're taking her for an ice cream cone!!
