Recall Training - using a long line

We hope you are all getting the chance to hit your local park or hiking trail and enjoying the lovely Spring weather! Long lines can be great tools to keep your pup safe in new open green spaces. Practice 3-4 recalls on your next hike to make showing up to you around deer, squirrels and other dogs a common and reliable behavior!

Check out Ham rockin his recalls below!

Polite Greetings with Bouncy Golden Retriever - Easy Dog Training

Polite greetings-social distancing style! Grab a food bowl, a toy, or even use a favorite fire hydrant to stand in as the "person" you are going to greet. Cue a "sit" , treat, and then allow your pup to greet. Slowly close the distance as you and your pup gain fluency. We love a training pattern to help young social dogs find success when working through polite greetings .

I miss my training puppies, I miss my training puppies, I miss my training puppies-OH WAIT! I get to see them tomorrow via Zoom!! Yay!! Oxytocin boost!! It’s my favorite time of day teaching, remote class, and it’s a blessing and a curse because as I teach these great pups in their home I watch how focused they are. Their humans are making training look so easy. They are prepared, moving a camera angle occasionally but their pups, working for simply a meal and play, pets and praise are engaging quickly and making behavior look fluent! Our only hiccup in training today was when we had clients ring doorbells and then use their energy and enthusiasm to call pups away—this was a little too exciting for a few adolescent pups and we talked though when and how to use human speed and energy to calm behavior and get more fun behavior! But.. if these same pups came to in person class, we would teach and owners would learn and they would be ooooooo so distracted! Even when we use visual barriers in our classrooms the emotions are heightened, the energy, excitement at a 10, we have to engage differently, pull out hundred dollar bills to redirect our pups. Is it possible that some combination of class at home and real life class may be the best future? Maybe. We can’t wait to find out because we have the. Best. Clients!! #futureofdogtraining #learnmore #domore #covid_19

UPDATE: We have opened up the webinars to unlimited seating! Please spread the news!

FREE WEBINAR TO HELP FOSTERS AND ADOPTERS!

Sheltering Together - Fostering & Adoption while Sheltering-in-Place

Many kind humans have stepped up to foster animals, eliminating the burden from shelter workers while we’re all stuck at home, sheltering in place. While sharing your home with a pet can provide emotional comfort and entertainment during this unique time, bringing a new animal into your house isn’t without challenges!

Inviting a new pet into the family can be a very exciting and yet overwhelming time. Some homeless pets have never lived in a home before. Your new foster friend may not be potty trained. Or, they may be fearful and struggling to adjust. That’s where we come in.

Join us online! It’s FREE!

We are offering this webinar on the following dates and times:

Saturday, April 25 at 11:30am EST

Hi Dog Trained Community/Gwen- Our pup Bruno has dry skin which leads to dandruff. Do have any go to fish oil supplement brands? Thanks!
Are you having a puppy play tomorrow at Chien? I thought it was this weekend, but wasn't 100% sure? Can't wait for our new doodle to play with other pups!
