Promise Me, Chester!

I’m sure you all know what a pinky promise is?

Normally if you want to further seal the deal, you’ll include the copy and stamp hand gestures as well. The pinky promise, copy and stamp gestures are really popular in Korea. Coincidentally my favorite Korean drama – Faith μ‹ μ˜ has a scene involving this as well.

I thought it would be interesting to teach Chester do the elaborate pinky promise hand gestures (with copy and stamp). Basically he just need to offer me his paw and I’ll do the rest. Hahaha Sound silly right? Anyway to make this promise extra special I added an extra step at the end with Chester kissing my hand. Cute or not?

Pinky promise!

I taught him ‘Kiss my hand’ twice and that’s it. He’s an expert after that. So proud I have a really smart dog!!! πŸ™‚ The ‘Kiss my hand’ command is actually incorporated in his daily must-do-thingy just before a meal. Since it was so cute, I added this step to the elaborate pinky promise action.

Okay, let’s watch the video! It includes special bonus of handshake as well.

Note: Yaksok (약속) means promise in Korean.

Kiss. xox

Actually this promise has a meaning behind it.
Told myself (in my heart)… whenever I do the Yaksok with Chester, it means my dog promises me to live as long as he can.

Chester is turning 10 in October.
