Dex gets to go home today! We spent his last few days just proofing and working on obedience drills so he and his owners will be successful when he gets home. He is such a smart and sweet boy we are excited he gets to go home and be with his people!
This isn't Dex's first time with training. He has trained with us previously and has been boarding with us while his owner was out of town. He will be going home very soon and we've started really testing his impulse control and his willingness to listen to commands, despite what is going on around him. We let Autumn run around and play while we asked Dex to continue working his obedience.
These types of tests are how you figure out if all of your obedience work is sticking with the dog. There were a few times Dex had a little trouble but for the most part he was able to ignore his environment and continue with his training! This smart boy is going to do so well once he goes home!
More from Nora's training! She is coming along nicely and has been practicing her recalls 😊 she is not a treat or food motivated dog but I finally found one that she really likes and will work for. This has helped her out a lot because it's a good reward for all the work she has been doing! As you'll see in the video we tried working on her recalling just on her name and command alone but her leash had her worried because it kept following her! She is such a sweet and funny girl 💕
Nora is working on sits and sit stays. She is not hugely food motivated so we use a lot of praise and touch to reward her
Nora is a sweet but timid little girl. We have been working mostly on place, sit, walking on leash, and her coming out of her shell a little more. She has been doing so well I tested her a little today by having some of the tools and benches out in the middle of the room. This way, when she follows me she has to go around them and really listen to the guidance from the leash. I also had another dog, Autumn crated in the training room to add another level of distraction to the exercise. In this video we were working on place.
Wrigley is back with us for off leash, Ecollar, training. We spent the first few days he was with us refreshing him on his basic obedience commands with his prong collar and next we will be going through all of those Command with the Ecollar! This video just shows him doing some obedience drills to make sure he fully understands everything before we get started on Ecollar training.
This gorgeous guy is Dexter! He has actually been with us for a little over a week now but at first he wasn't too keen about me getting near him. Now that he has warmed up to me we are starting to get somewhere with his training! In this video I am just getting Dexter used to prong and leash pressure and walking with me. I am also working his sits at the same time since he is happy enough to give them for me. Check back in for more updates on this boy!
Dexter started learning downs today. What a smart pup! I am using luring with food and later will pair in leash pressure. When teaching your pup it is important to let them figure out what you want from them. You can always help if they get really lost but don't jump in too soon and they usually figure it out on their own!
