Do you guys use StumbleUpon? It’s a great little application that allows you to find other websites you are likely interested in. Basically, you sign up for an account, install the StumbleUpon toolbar, and tell them a few of your interests then start stumbling by clicking the little stumble button on your toolbar. When you find pages you like click the “I like it” button …pages you don’t like you click the “I don’t like it” button. By check marking the webpages you like and don’t like you’re feeding StumbleUpon information that allows them to tailor your stumbles specifically for you.
Using StumbleUpon I found this great “how to video” on how to sing your puppies to sleep…well not really a “how to”, but he does sing the puppies to sleep. How he trained the puppies to go to sleep while he sings??? I’m not really sure. I’ve raised a few litters of puppies and wish I had this talent.
Actually when Stetson was a puppy I had to talk to him for 5-10 minutes before he’d fall asleep. If I didn’t talk to him and tell him what a good boy he was he’d whine, bark, cry, howl…He did this until he was about 4 months old. Now Stetson makes almost no noise…he doesn’t bark, howl, cry, or whine. Occasionally he makes that growling sound when he’s wrestling Linus or Derby or during tug-of-war.
Singing The Puppies To Sleep
Without further adieu…here’s the video:
Either I need a recording of the this guy singing his puppies to sleep or I need him to come over till my puppies get out of the whining stage of their lives.
How can I train my puppies to fall asleep in the crate this easily and at such a young age? Derby’s already well on his way to being well-behaved in his crate. However, on occasion he does bark for about 30 seconds before he settles into his crate and will also bark sometime when I get home (before I have a chance to take him out of the crate). I know with time and consistency Derby will get used to his crate, but as I said earlier: is there a way to speed up the process?
Now without StumbleUpon I may have never found this video which I had the chance to share with you today. By the way if you’re a StumbleUpon user please check the “I like it!” button if you like any of my articles. If you want to add me as a friend visit my StumbleUpon page and click the “add him as a friend” button.
Do you have any hints for getting your puppies to sleep? How about getting them used to the crate/tie downs? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
