Soleil relaxing in the kitchen - 8 weeks old
Soleil's first time on the wobble board - 9 weeks old
So this morning I thought I would introduce Soleil to the wobble board. My plan was to start a game of tug to get her in drive and then gradually move closer to the wobble board and see if she would get on or put her paws on it. Well Missy had other plans. I had just laid the board down and turned my back to get her tug toy when I heard this big BANG. She had jumped onto the board, made it bang, and then jumped off and took off running.
Oh great, I thought. Now she's scared and I've totally ruined her first experience with the wobble board.
Nope! She zoomed in a circle and then before I could stop her, she jumped back on the board and made it go bang again. Then she saw the shiny screw in the middle and began to scratch at it and then growl because she couldn't get to it (it's recessed into the wood).
We then played tug on the board and she was happy to jump on and off. She offers this behavior. Nothing about the sound or movement concerned her. Actually, she thinks its great fun!
