Ajax, a Pit Bull mix from Manhattan Beach, CA went through the Balanced Canine Training SoCal Board & Train dog training program. Ajax was trained by dog trainer Jesus Medina in Acton, CA.
Ajax is a goofy pup that loves to cuddle
He doesn't always listen, he jumps on mom and everyone, he lunges and pulls on a leash - and sometimes he goes overboard with playing...
He's also a bit skittish, and darts in crowds with cars.

Ajax's behavior has regressed further than we previously suspected. As an example, when performing a down, Ajax covers my left foot. This is a sign from Ajax that he doesn't want to down for me. He has tried very hard to not perform the commands correctly despite obviously knowing the commands. We have gone back to the basics with Ajax and will build him back again.
Ajax had lots of fun hiking with friends today.

Ajax having fun at the park
By having Ajax work on an unstable surface, we are challenging the mind. This will help him overcome lots of fear and build confidence
Tilting is performed manually by applying pressure directly to the surface, or by shifting the dog’s weight around. Video coming soon.
Was able to take Ajax to the skatepark to help reduce his desire to want to chase the skateboards. Ajax, as the pictures show, had little to no interest in the boards or boarders. Putting Ajax into a command helps him focus on the task, and gives him less opportunity to react to the distractions around him.
Ajax really put to the test with plenty of skateboarding distractions.
