We did some wonderful protocols to get dogs to exist around chickens and not aggress or even care about them. This dog struggles with chasing the family cats. So we worked on the same concepts of getting the dog to exist around the chicken as we would with cats. I do this 2 ways. I can have a dog do total avoidance ( which I would normally do around chickens) or existence and calmness which I would do for the family cat this was at this past weekends seminar in Kelowna, BC link to future seminars is in the link in my bio
In this video Max is working on his off leash obedience. He is now to the point where we are using the remote for corrections for not following through. We have spent weeks committing these skills to memory, so now we get to put them all to good use! We started off with some basic drills in the yard, but we finished up we a completely off leash trail walk! Max did great and came back each time we called, but the really awesome part are the “check ins” that we got from Max. He has learned to stay tuned in with his handler, so now all on his own he keeps us in the back of his mind, even with the off leash freedom!
Good job Max!! #dog#dogs#boardandtrain#pom#pomeranian#pomeranianpuppy#dogtraining#dogtrainingtips#maine#freeport#freeportmaine#mainedogtrainer
Just finishing up a fantastic seminar in Kelowna,BC. We worked dogs through human aggression, dog aggression, resource guarding, on leash and off leash obedience lots of state of mind training and so much more. So happy that @politepawskelowna could be a fantastic host
After doing some recall exercises with Autumn in the yards we upped the game a little at went to the big field. This is a new area for Autumn that is big and open and gave her a case of the zoomies! She is dragging around a long line so I can pick it up anytime if needed to give her additional guidance but we are using the remote collar to primarily communicate. We are prompting Autumn at this point. So when I say “Autumn, come” I’m giving a 1 second tap on her remote collar on a level 6 (out of 100!) Eventually we will be phasing out prompting on the remote and use it just for a correction should she not follow through. For now we are still laying in those lines of communication with prompting through this invisible leash! Keeping in mind to increase our level on the remote collar if needed to gain Autumns attention. Great job Autumn!
