Bruno is so good at waiting for food until I say OK. He easily beats me in self-control. #dogwaitingforfood#dogselfcontrol#impulsecontrol ................................................................ ................................................................ ................................................................ Just kidding! He is just so upset and lost appetite after I put the leash on him.#ilovefreedom#doxie
This is so important to me!💯🙌 I easily get tripped up on people's opinions and how they speak about me; both when I'm present and when I'm not. I've struggled a lot in life with people not understanding me so I get misconstrued for something I'm not. I've also struggled a lot with people fearing me so they run around slandering me and trying to skew others perceptions of me.
I'm really working with the King to help me become free of those bondages. To know that His light and glory shines brighter than the lies spoken and spread about me. He has the supernatural power to change any and all thoughts and cancel out lies with truth. I'm so thankful for that.
God has really assured me that it's not my fight to fight when people talk wrongly of me..He's the one to handle it and settle the score. That's no longer where my energies belong.
Mama saatlerini fırsata çevirin. Çünkü bir kap dolusu mama çok büyük bir ödül aynı zamanda. Pozitif eğitimde şöyle bir söz vardır "hiçbir şey bedava değil" mama için sakince beklemeleri, özellikle de yavrulardaki heyecan problemi için harika bir çalışma. Karemel ilk geldiğinde bu videodaki performansı mümkün değildi. İnanılmaz bir heyecan problemi vardı. Şimdi ise dürtü kontolü gelişmiş bir çocuk olduğu için daha rahat ve sakin 💜 Bakınız, Pyro mamanın başına gelince duruyor ama Karamel hemen yiyor. Bu çalışma ilerletildiğinde o da Pyro gibi bekleyecek ve bunu da sizle paylaşıcaz. 🤗 Bu yüzen sabırsız davranmayın, bir eğitmen olarak ben de sizin yaşadığınız şeyleri yaşıyorum😉 Çocuklarınıza biraz zaman verin ve düzenli tekrarlar yapın. Karşılığını almamanız mümkün değil🐾
Nosework practice this morning! We worked on ignoring distractions, so not only were there all kinds of weird objects around but there was food hidden in some of the boxes! How tricksy for them 😉 Scarlett did great and got only slightly distracted by a fluffy cat toy for a second.
My new friend Chance at the New York Ave @humanerescue shelter. I visited him yesterday and we worked on sit, stay, and #impulsecontrol . He's very #teachable , and even ignored me dropping his ball when I'd told him to stay (only about half the time but it's a "win" because that was asking a lot of him).
He's SUPER SWEET and absolutely LOVES balls and cheese.
It was muddy outside so we spent time inside (and brought a ton of the mud with us). He was fixed the other day so I gave him some time out of his cone... Mostly because I had to clean off the mud he picked up outside.
It’s a rare occasion that my husband interacts with my boarding dogs, but when I get the chance I always turn it into a training opportunity!! While Jordan is throwing the ball for Tucker, I have Murphy in a sit-stay to work on his impulse control a bit. Murphy can sometimes be a bit intense about toys, and he is doing a great job here!
Woohoo! The new graduation caps for my Puppy 1 & Puppy 2 students came! 🎓🐶 The perfect accessory for their diploma pictures!
Sierra just looks grumpy 'cause it's showing her age... She graduated y e a r s ago... 😂
Lulu's Lessons: "This, my young Padawan, is a ball. It's the BEST THING IN THE WORLD! The quicker you bring it back, the quicker the hooman-slaves will throw it again. When they say it's enough, you must calm down though 🤔"
So proud of these two - the little one learned to retrieve today and it was actually possible to play with them both at the same time with both sticking to their own ball. And the little guy actually had enough restraint for this picture 😊
Gracie and I have taken a break from learning “tricks” for a bit to backtrack to some basic training using this cool device called a Treat & Train (another gift from our dear friend @sukisinnyc). This will help with Gracie focusing on me for directions, impulse control, and lead to more tricks training later. In this video Gracie is enthusiastically touching a target in hopes of getting a treat. What we are working on is eye contact, waiting for the cue “target”, and Gracie touching the target with her nose instead of her tonsils 😁
Training is such great mental and physical exercise and can really help keep dogs safe, like preventing them from bolting out a door. Plus it’s fun and a great way to bond! We wanna give a shout-out to @caitmhimms for the great tips and support! If you don’t already follow her you should!! PS apologies for the explicit language from Gracie at the start of this video
Yuka is learning to back up on command! This is a great exercise to teach rear end awareness and is a prerequisite skill for many other tricks. This one took her a LONG time but it finally clicked and I am so proud! [______________________________]
1) find a cushion or slightly elevated surface that your dog will be able to distinguish
2) using a yummy treat guide your dog forwards and backwards until they are comfortable going straight back and walking their back paws onto the pad. You may need to create a barrier on the sides of them to keep them from swinging their butt around and avoiding the pad all together. Another option is to make the pad very long so they can’t miss it.
3) repeat until they start to walk back on their own.
4) add a verbal cue once they are backing up consistently [______________________________]
5) repeat until they back up as soon as you say their cue! [______________________________]
6) slowly increase distance [______________________________]
7) slowly increase height of object they are backing up on. [______________________________]
Keep training sessions short and very positive! If you’re frustrated so is your dog!
