This is a throwback to June 2016. It’s a post I’d published on a different blog I ran at the time before I’d completed the Victoria Stilwell Academy and certified as a Dog Trainer…

Kimber is my 6-month old puppy. He’s a Beagle. Beagles are food-oriented. They count everything that can fit into their mouths as food. And some things that do not fit. So Kimber explores the world with his mouth. Here are just some of the things that I’ve had to stop him from eating this week alone:

  1. The doormat
  2. My budgie cage
  3. His cage (crate)
  4. His lead
  5. Dust-bunnies
  6. My Wii games
  7. My underwear
  8. The Boy’s underwear
  9. The cone on his head (to stop him licking his stitches)
  10. His stitches
  11. Bird shit
  12. His dinner bowl
  13. His water bowl
  14. My hair
  15. The TV remote
  16. The Boy’s laptop
  17. A box of tissues
  18. Another box of tissues
  19. My magazine (that I was trying to read at the time)
  20. All of our food
