Dog Beach and Dog Training Tips from Malibu, CA

I seriously couldn't wait to post about my first dog beach excursion ever! I was so excited that I even allowed M to dress me up in a soft fleece shirt that says Doggone Gorgeous! The weather was wonderful, a bit on the cool side, but the nice warm sun made all the difference. The sand was superb! As soon as we got there, Frankie and I started doing the bunny hop. What do you call two designer dogs enjoying a day at the dog beach?

Chihuahua bunny hop
aka Chibunny

aka Chitalian Bun Bun
Another pawesome, in my opinion, designer dog name

Dog training tips: If you sense your human's hesitation before taking you off leash, heel. Act like the most obedient walker and see if it works. It works for me most of the time. Also, allow your humans some personal satisfaction by doing something new and unusual. For example, I wore a shirt. That makes your humans think that they trust you more. BOL

I had no idea that a dog beach can be so vast. I was pleased and not intimidated, and apparently so was Frankie. 

I felt so tiny!

And so did Frankie

We didn't mind one bit though. After the first bunny hops near M, we just let loose. Dog training tips, continued: Don't forget to stick by your humans, at first! After a few minutes, do as you please. They can only whistle so loud.

I had no idea the dog beach was such a romantic place

Or such a spiritual one
(Frankie's praying again)

Surprise, surprise, M only had on her two digital photo cameras and her flip cam! At one point, she was trying to hoax Frankie and me to join her closer to the water, so she could shoot video. A big wave came and got her soaking wet, boots and everything, all the way up to her waist. She almost got drawn into the water, but she claims she stayed as balanced as she could and didn't get tumbled around because she was holding onto her flip cam. We don't have that most entertaining video to share, but we have the next best thing: Twinkie and Frankie at the Malibu dog beach! 

Before I go, I want to remind our furiends that Toby has left and his raiser could use our support!
And while my date has been MIA and not asked me yet to Date Night, this won't stop me from reminding our furiends that Date Night is happening over at Twix's
Last, Global Animal Blogging Event still in process, until midnight on Saturday. Sunday we get to spread the  joy by contacting our winners about their free giveaways!

Twink, I thought you were going to bite the camera there at the beginning! Tee hee! We just got one of those flippy cameras and now I just have to get Mom to take me some places so we can use it! I think the beach was the best part of your trip by far!


Gnomebody said...

What a lovely trip! We really, really, really want to see the beach also, tho we probably won't wear a shirt to please Mommy. It would just get all wet and sandy.

We're going to Twix's Date Nite! Riley is taking Stella, and I'm going stag - who knows who I'll meet!

Hope to see ya there!

My oh my that beach sure looks fun!!! I'm glad you and Frankie are so obedient and have trained your M well! I wish we could do an outing like this with the kiddlets... but Captain would surely run away, we could take Candy but then she'd have no play mate!

xo martine & the kiddlets

PS: Captain especially loved the music in your video, he was wagging and wagging!!

I dunno, Twink. You be carefuls around that beach thing. If it can suck in a full grown human woman, it could eat you up like a snack. I'm just sayin'.

On the other paw, I am very much glad that you hads such a good time and I am fast memorizing all your tips. You are very much wise in this area.

I will talks to you again in five days. But before then, I'm gonna see you at date night, right?

Wiggles & WAgs,

Scout and Freyja said...

You are so furry lucky to have that great beach to run on and to play on. We would like you to remember to stay away from that water 'cause we don't want one of those biggie waves taking you out to sea☺

Nadine, Chewy and Lilibell said...

Oh my dogness, you guys really do look like bunnies in those pics! We had fun going to the beach with you!

Oh, so much fun - we are very jealous. The pawrents are headed out your way in July, so maybe they will head to the beach and see if they can find you and Frankie.

Glad those waves didn't know M over and ruin her cameras.

Ahhhh...the gorgeous sights and sounds of the ocean!


Sagira said...

That looks like so much fun. Just the sound of the water is so relaxing.

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Hi Twinkie and Frankie B, That is one PAWsome beach. Mine at the lake is not NEARLY so big.
You gave some of the bestest ever training tips this time. I have kind of tried them, butt I think my two leggers learn more slowly than yours does. I guess I will just have to set up some more practice lessons for them. I am sure you are totally correct about everything!!! I just have to be more... firm with them and then I will be free as a bird... like you!! AWHHHH

JacksDad said...

We haven't been to the beach in a long time. I'll have to show the tall guy your pictures to get him inspired!!

Dexter said...

That is too funny that your mom got all wet. Hehehe. But not you, right? You did manage some most excellent zoomies.


Two Pitties in the City said...

What a great day at the beach! Is your t-shirt to prevent sunburn?

Never been to a beach, looks like fun though! A few questions: didn't the sand feel all nasty between your pads? And how did the piano stay dry (BOL)?
