Cargo Is Back!!

Little Cargo is back to finish her training!! She will be with me for the next 2 weeks to weeks to accomplish the advanced obedience.  She has been very excited to be back & see all her friends but it was straight to business when she got here.  Her mom & dad have done a great job with her Basic Obedience but she definitely knows when that leash comes off it's a free for all and she is out of control.  Stay tuned for Cargo's progress over the next two weeks as she learn her off leash work!

Work, work, work!!

I was hoping to ease back into work but that's just not been the case!!  It's great problem to have and I am so happy to see my clients again.  I have many new trainees!  Miss Laina finished up her 3 week Advanced Obedience and she made me very proud!! She did absolutely excellent & I hope her mom is enjoying her much more now that she has the tools & techniques to help her follow through.  I also finished with long time and repeat client on their new addition Ellie, a 4month old Great Dane pup who also completed the Advanced Obedience.  We still have some work to accomplish with her in our follow up lessons but she has made great progress back home with her family.

I have also just finished up with Amos - a 2 year old American Staffordshire Terrier who needed some Basic Obedience and a little work learning to socialize with a little less exuberance.  He spent one week & did very well.  He definitely likes to chose which command he does when given a specific command but that just won't cut it :o)  He is now back home with his mom, dad & big sister & former trainee, Mesa.  He is definitely giving them a challenge but they will stay consistent and follow through.  We'll have a follow up lesson the next time they are back in Georgia too!

I have a new trainee this past week that has joined us all the way from Pensacola, FL.  He is an 8month old English Bulldog pup named Patton!  He will be with me for two weeks.  He has completed week one of his training with the Basic Obedience.  In true Bulldog fashion he 
is quite stubborn but incredibly smart.  He does get easily worn out by our training work outs though.  He is only able to go about 10 minutes and then he's ready to fall asleep.  He was holding his sit command while I was trying to distract him out of the command and he was head bobbing and lightly swaying trying to hold his sit. Poor little guy.  He is a super playful guy and has made lots of friends.  He has made himself quite at home always asking if he can get up on the couch for his very frequent naps.

He still has some work to accomplish this next week so more updates to come on Patton!

I'm Baaaack!!!

I am back after the fastest maternity leave ever.  I have a new trainee to tell you guys about!!

Meet Laina!
She is an absolute doll. She is here for my Advanced Obedience.  She has been here a week and is doing very well.  She definitely has a mind of her own but what girl doesn't ;o)  She has completed, with flying colors, the basic, on leash part of the training so we started the off leash this morning.  She had a rough time with it in our first lesson but had a complete break-through in our afternoon lesson and then looked like an old pro this evening.  We'll work a bit tomorrow but I'll most likely work on her place command since we're expected to get rain.  She has made TONS of friends.  She is definitely a social butterfly and doesn't take no for an answer when it comes to playing.  I am super pleased with he progress up to this point & look forward to the next 2 weeks!  More on Laina to come!
