For those of you who are unfamiliar with a picket line, it is a long cable that has a series of short “drop” cables.  That way, you can connect a series of dogs to the line at one time.  We posted this picture of The Herd on a picket line yesterday on our Facebook Page shortly after arriving at the campsite.

When we are camping, like we are this weekend at Big Ridge State Park, it is critical that the dogs know how to behave on the picket line.  Since this is Typhoon’s first RV trip with us, he is working hard at getting used to the rules of camping.  The first rule is to stay quiet on the line and not get distracted with all of the movement going on around you in the campground.

Good boy.

Typhoon is emulating his big sister Cheoah on the picket line.

Bird!

Ok, so he might need a little more practice.

P.S. – He actually did quite well.  Only once did he have to go inside the RV to his crate because he was making too much noise.  Really good for a rookie.

  1. so that’s how you make them be quiet? you put them in the RV? and it WORKS? wow. and they say sibes can’t be trained… ha!

    • Laughing – It does not keep a Sibe quiet, but it does add insulation around a noisy temper tantrum which means a Sibe can not bother the neighbors – as much,

      • do the rest of the herd look at him like he’s an embarrassment or problem child? or do they pretend they don’t know him? i’ll bet he’s all, WTF? why aren’t the rest protesting?

        and how did you train all 6 at once in the beginning? just put whomever was noisy back in the RV and take them out when they were quiet?

  2. That’s pretty good ty. I am so glad your all having a good time. Keep up the great work ty. Hugs and kisses to the herd.

  3. Glad to hear the rookie is doing great! Have fun!

  4. Peer pressure works great in training newbies to follow the rules. And the crate you say? I’ve always wondered how people camped with Sibes.

  5. Ty is so lucky to have the wisdom of his pack! He looks like he’s doing pretty well!

  6. He really is a pretty good puppy! Now if we could get the Hu-Dad to come and teach Kuster to be quiet…

  7. He looks like he’s settling right in…that bird had some nerve doing a fly-by! Sheesh…how’s a Husky to think? Happy running!

  8. Only once?
    Sounds like a good job!
    Have fun
    Kisses and hugs

  9. Sounds like he’ll be a pro in no time!

  10. Ty looks like he’s doing better than I thought he would. He’ll get the hang of it in no time, I’m sure.

  11. Way to go Typhoon! We are really impressed. I don’t think I would be able to ignore a bird either, let alone a squirrel!
