Obie is very food motivated and happy. He loves people and had lots of energy. He is going to enjoy his yard all summer long. Good boy, Obie!
Both dogs are doing very well during their first training session and are avoiding the flags. They will continue to gain confidence with the additional training. Way to go, Tyr and Ares!
Bruno is nervous but we gave him lots of roast beef and pets in the yard and he’s starting to relax. With additional training, he will gain confidence and begin enjoying his yard with his family. Good boy, Bruno!
Lucy was more nervous than Bella, so we went slow and gave her lots of cheese and pets. By the time we finished, she was happily walking around the new areas where she felt safe. Both dogs were paying attention to where the flags were the entire time. With a little coaxing and lots of pets and treats, we got Bella to walk around the entire perimeter without her retreating or getting too nervous. We will continue to work like that with them until they start to relax. Good job!
Mini is doing excellent, avoiding the areas she knows well and consistently backing off when she gets close enough to get a correction. She was dragging her leash today as part of her training. Great job, Mini!
Roxie is still on leash and in training levels. With a little practice, she’ll understand the boundaries soon. Way to go, Roxie!
Ranger made one mistake when he was playing chase for some bacon but backed off right away. We played ball and he refused to chase it when near the flags. He is doing very well with his training. Way to go, Ranger!
Ponce is more sensitive to the notification and stayed motivated for the food. He was starting to back away when we finished with him. Caya started to notice the beep after a few minutes. She got hot quickly, and food isn’t her biggest motivator. Overall, a good first training session. Way to go!
Bailey went through one time during training because we were all on the other side with Sadie and he didn’t want to be alone. After we brought him back through he didn’t do it again. Sadie avoided the flags the entire time. These two are quick learners!
