Excitement to a Puppy is Like Candy Crush to a Human

Be patient with your putty

When a human is playing Candy Crush, reading a book or working, it’s a common experience that when someone calls your name you don’t even hear them because you are so engrossed in whatever it is you’re doing. It could be a film or your favourite soap opera. Some people are really bad at it and it’s difficult to get their attention when they are busy doing something.

Well that’s exactly what it’s like when us puppies and dogs are excited, we are engrossed in whatever and we can’t hear our name being called. …where’s the flowers… it’s like being in the zone and no amount of external stimulation is going to be more appealing. …chase the ball…

So we’re not ignoring you when we are excited it’s just that we are zoned out and what’s needed is to wait till we are calm and then we’ll listen. …who’s at the door?… so be patient and wait till we are ready to communicate. It’ll be much more fun. …bring chicken…

I was out on the balcony playing fetch with a ball and I was amazing so I think his Jedi trick …chicken chicken chicken… to get my attention worked cos we had a fab game. He did not too bad too lol
