Puppy Training Day 13


This morning things started off foggy and raining. About as warm as yesterday.

07:00am – My friend squeaked to let us know he was ready – I always have to time letting him out when he is not being noisy. This requires mindfulness and awareness.

We walked, he pooped twice – we came back, he drank some water and came with me to get his breakfast. We then walked to the kennel and I gave him his breakfast.

11:00am – Session 1.

It was raining pretty steady this morning so we did his session inside.  He did great walking to the porch area.  All his behaviors were good except for his down.  He has a lot of energy and is excited so he kept popping back up.  I had to back up this down again and we got some good reps with his last one being at 10 secs.  This just shows that this is an area I need to be slower with him as I believe I progressed a bit too fast with this behavior at first

4:00pm – Session 2 .

He was awesome! Due to the rain I wanted to work him in the back porch where it’s dry. His house was extraordinary and we worked it by standing about 3 week from the crate and not using a hand signal. He did very good with the verbal command.

Down was awesome. Name recognition was awesome. Ultimate workout was awesome as well.

But he shown with whistle recall. He ran up ahead of me and went into a sit and was just watching me. I stopped in the rain and hit whistle recall – he was literally moving towards me before he realized it. That is phenomenal response and what we’re looking for.

This guy just keeps getting better and better each day.

6:00pm – play time and dinner.

8:00pm – play time and walk.

10:00pm – play time and walk.
