Leo didn’t make any mistakes today. He was off leash and playing Frisbee. We tried to distract him with some treats as well, but he did perfectly. He’s all set. Way to go, Leo!
Rose didn’t approach the flags today. We played, walked around the yard and fed her bacon. We also left her alone to walk up the street. She had no interest in leaving. She did everything perfectly and has successfully completed her training, Way to go, Rose!
The doggies from Kinnelon are now finished with their training. Billy backed off as soon as he heard the collar beep. Penny knows exactly where the boundaries are and avoids them. They now have all summer to explore the yard safely. Way to go!
Katie is a bit nervous about training. We walked her around the yard and tried some toys and hot dogs. That helped a bit. Then we brought Teddy out, and she started to warm up a lot. Teddy backs off as soon as he hears the beep. They are a good pair and with another training, they will be enjoying the freedom of the yard.
Piper was nervous at first and tested the flags a few times, so we spent a lot of extra time in the yard with treats. Charlie also helped her to keep calm. Charlie did wonderfully and didn’t get scared. He was backing off most of the time, and avoiding the areas he knew. Mickey did very well. He knows where the flags are and avoids them most of the time. All three dogs will get to enjoy the freedom of the yard!
Lucia was consistently backing off and avoiding the flags, but did run through a couple of times. She was on a long lead today and is very food motivated. With another training session and some practice, she’ll be enjoying her yard. Way to go, Lucia!
