Great Lesson with Duncan, the Pitbull. Owners have been working hard in private lessons, at home, and in class. Duncan will become the poster dog for Pits. His first lesson with another dog on a loose leash, not being held, with the other dog free playing in the same yard. He did great!
Seeing improvement with each owner and dog. Ask questions for clarity, the trainer wants to make sure you understand the techniques. About Turns are a foundation technique to teach attention at heel.
Another rainy Tuesday when we are supposed to have outdoor agility. Oh, bummer! There are still plenty of exercises to practice, but don’t want to endanger students or dogs by running courses. Does everyone have a pause table in your house? It’s a great piece of equipment to use for directional cues and teaching sits, downs, and stays.
