Welcome To Class!!

Make sure you pay close attention because what you will learn from my class is very impawtant!!



Welcome Students to my class!!

Fur all my students, upon finishing this class you will receive a very special badge!! So make sure you pay attention so you will pass the test!!!

~Pawfessor Higgins







Lesson #1


If you have pesky deer, like this…


There are two ways to scare them off…





You can sit on the porch and bark yourself silly!  Of course, you have to have a very mantastic bark, like myself,  so they will know you are serious! 






Start barking at them first thing in the morning before you exit the bed, waking your dad in the process!!   Kind of a win-win if you ask me!  BOL!

Lesson #2


For this lesson I will let Maggie, my sister, demonstrate the proper way to Pawtect Your Stuffies.  She has it down to an art…BTW, don’t let her little bow fool you, this one is all fur and teeth!


Sit on top of the toy basket and when anydog gets near…chase them off!!  Trust me, it works almost every time!

Lesson #3


This is a very impawtent lesson to learn.  Around my parts there are two dogs in our family…me and Maggie.  Mom forces us to share the same food bowl, which in my opinion should be considered abuse.  Anyhoos…


Maggie has been known to guard her food bowl in the same manner that she pawtects the stuffies.  Me, however, likes a more sneaky approach…


I will nudge the food bowl away from the wall and  stand guard from behind the bowl.  I find it more effective to be able to see Maggie coming so I can chase her away!!

Lesson #4


Here is a way fur all you sleepy heads to Pawtect & Serve.

When undergoing “under the covers” security, when anyone (or dog)  comes near or in this case, on top of you… The element of surprise works every time!!

It’s hard to tell from the video, but Maggie stepped on me while I was doing “under the covers” security!!  She stopped and decided to go the other way…works every time!!  BOL!


That was the end of the class…


Here is the test!

  12. Professor Higgins....great class. We don't have deer but we have to protect our house from cats and school kids walking past. You have some great ideas. Like keeping your back to the wall when eating. We'll use that.

    Great class!
