Abbie | Mini Bernedoodle | Sierra Madre ,Ca | In - Training
Meet Abbie! A five year old Mini Bernedoodle from Sierra Madre Ca, she has joined us for our Two Week Board and Train Program. Abbie is here because her owner wanted her to be more reliable off leash along with working on her reactivity towards other dogs, squirrels, kids, and guests that come over at times. Overall Abbie is a very smart, loyal, and loving pup! Tune in to watch Abbie's progress over the next two weeks!
Today for our first session Abbie and I worked on engagement in my front yard. She had a bit of aggression towards my dogs but that’s not a problem, today I am testing out her temperaments and seeing how she is. Tomorrow we will starting our intro to ecollar!
Today for our session we training in my front drive way, we used the noise from the street as a distraction for our training. Today we focused on introduction to ecollar, teaching Abbie what the ecollar stimulation means and how to proper turn that feeling off. Today all I was asking from Abbie was to just come into my space whenever she feels it. Overall Abbie is doing a great job at responding to the ecollar!
Today for our afternoon session Abbie and I worked on my front drive way once again, using the noise from the street as distractions along with my personal dogs being behind the gate near her. Today we focused on pairing all of the commands with leash pressure along with the stimulation from the ecollar as well! During our session you can see Abbie at times being stubborn and ignoring the stimulation from the ecollar tool, with constancy and patience during our reps and sessions . Abbie was able to understand exactly what I was asking for. We paired the ecollar with leash pressure for heel , sit , down , and place as well! Overall Abbie is doing great and learning quickly!
Today Abbie and i met up with the Offleash SoCal team at a local park in Los Angeles Ca to get some training in! Today during our session, we focused on Abbie’s reactivity at the park towards squirrels and other dogs. Along with reactivity we also focused on her durations for her sit and down around other dogs at the park!
Today Abbie and I worked on all of her obedience around my personal dog, when they first met Abbie didn’t like him . She would constantly be barking at him and at times snap at him if he got too close. Abbie has a very good understanding of the ecollar now , so I’m going to be adding the “come to sit “ command within these next few days , along with proofing the rest of her obedience commands around other dogs and distractions.
Today Abbie and I worked on all of her obedience on my driveway. We also worked on her reactivity to my personal dog Kisa. Kisa is a big puppy that loves to play, and Abbie at first did not like her. Every time Kisa would get next or near her, she would snap and bark at her. I decided to have our session with Kisa on the place next to us, and at times break them to allow them to interact with each other. I did notice today that she was being a bit extra stubborn today, I had to go up on higher numbers with the ecollar along with showing her the pressure with the leash until she finally followed through for the down command.
Today for our session Abbie and I worked on all of our obedience around another board and train! She’s getting a lot better on her obedience around other dogs , at first she would be really stubborn because she hated being around other dogs she’s not comfortable with. She’s also getting a lot better at her “come to sit” command as well! We will continue to add more and more distractions into our training!
Today for our session Abbie and I focused on all of her general obedience commands. I focused on having her place on different chairs, along with her “come to sit” command. Tomorrow Abbie and I will be working on generalizing our commands in a different environment.
Today Abbie and I met up with the Offleash SoCal team at a local park in Downey Ca, to get some training in! Today we focused on all of her general obedience around other dogs and people. In the video you can see the other dogs get closer and closer to her, she is doing amazing on holding her composure around other dogs. During the next day or two I will be working on getting her off leash!
Today for our session Abbie and I had our session on my driveway, using the noise from the streets as distraction for training. We worked on all of her commands off leash! For her first session being off leash, she is doing a amazing job! She has a full understanding of everything I’m asking for. For now on Abbie and I will be adding more and more distractions to our sessions.
Today Abbie and I had our session at a local park in San Dimas Ca! Today we focused on all of her off leash commands, around distractions from the kids and people by the playground along from the animals at the park. Even though there were distractions, Abbie still did a great job. As our session went on Abbie started to do better and better!
Today Abbie and I met up with the offleash SoCal team at a local park in Cerritos Ca, to get some training in around distractions! Today I realized that Abbie needs some work on holding her positions around other dogs, especially the bigger dogs. The only other thing I noticed she needs a bit more work on, is sharpening up her “ recall to sit” command. Other than that she did pretty good at heeling around the ducks that were at the park.
Today Abbie and I met up with a couple of the offleash SoCal team members at an local outlet in Los Angeles Ca, to get some training in around people! Today we focused on her duration for her extended sit command as well as her place command as well. During our session she did a great job heeling with me off leash around people at the outlet. We also have been working on sharpening up her “come to sit” command around distractions!
Although this video is from yesterday, Abbie and I did the same exact thing today as demstareted in the video yesterday. Today Abbie and I took another field trip to the local outlet in Los Angeles CA, to get some training in. Today we focused on her "heel" command through the tough crowds that were doing Christmas shopping, along with her "down" command around distractions. She did a great job on holding her durations around the people walking by her. Overall Abbie has come a long way and is doing a great job off leash!
Today Abbie and I worked at the park to proof all of her obedience before she goes home tomorrow! Today I worked on Abbie’s obedience command along side of another board and train dog. We focused on their durations for down along side another, as well as the heel, sit, and down commands alongside one another. Abbie also did a great job on her recall to sit command! Abbie and I can’t wait to show you what we have learned tomorrow!
