Archers a super chill guy that just joined us for our two week board and train!
He's doing well! We introduced the collar today, practicing come, sit, and heel later on our evening walk. He ate about half of his dinner.
Archer did well at the park today! We were so busy having fun I forgot to snap a pic. We're going back tomorrow though, so you'll get a video of him in action! He ate all of his breakfast, but didn't finish dinner.
Today we worked at the Home Depot! Archers heel was great around the neighborhood, but needs more work around people. The level of stimulation he needs increases with the amount of distractions around.
He ate all of his food today, and we went for a nice walk at a local park. We also switched to hypoallergenic contact points too. I noticed him itching at the collar, and though I didn't notice any signs of allergy or irritation, I wanted to stay on the safe side and switched them anyways.
From our trip to PetSmart! He did well heeling up until we came across two small dogs. He didn't bark, but he was hopping around doing his little tippy tappy excited dance. We moved a few feet back and refocused, then walked by them again and he stayed heeling. I was really proud of him.
We also got a new toy to play with!
We spent most of our day practicing heel, and place!
Waiting patiently to eat. Today we're working on basics, and off leash heeling.
We had a nice day in downtown Huntington Beach, and got some good training in!
