Puppy Training Day 39

This morning it was very cold but sunny.

07:30am – Babe was a little low energy this morning but went through his routine fine – drink, pee, poop, poop, play with the pine cone and then breakfast.

11:00am – session 1

Worked a bunch on Babe in a down position and allowed the leash to clip on without wanting to bite. 

He has been supper mouthy wanting to chew on the leash when putting the leash on.  So we worked on this a lot. 

I got 2 good approximations in on this behavior and left it at that as it was getting long and it was asking a lot for him to still stay there as he has a lot of energy.

4:00pm – session 2

Today I worked a lot on slowing Babe down. 

He’s a high energy dog and when first training it’s best to train the puppy so reading his behavior and working with it to best suit your sessions. 

Once they get most of the behaviors down it’s good to switch things up a bit. 

Babe likes routine and thrives in it.  If you change things up he gets easily frustrated and his attention will drift. 

So today we worked on slowing down a bit.  He did great with the majority of behaviors but still needs more sessions like this to learn it’s ok to slow down.

6:00pm – play time and dinner.

7:30pm – play time and 1.5 mile walk.

10:00pm – play time and walk.
