Puppy Class

Courteous Canine Class

Today we went to the first class of a group class that focuses on teaching your dog to pay attention with distractions around. Loker totally surprised the heck out of me! He did so much better than I expected. His threshold was about 20 feet most of the time, so I kept that distance as best I could from any dog. I used a lot of “click the trigger” at the beginning and then he actually calmed down and became less reactive within a matter of minutes. I would click and reward for laying down, sitting, staying, making eye contact, and loose leash walking. Basically everything he did right! I am so proud of him! This new method makes training fun and relaxing instead of stressful and irritating!
