Archie | Golden Retriever | Long Beach, CA | In-Training

Archie, a six month old Golden Retriever, has joined OffLeash SoCal for our two week board and train program. Archie comes to us with typical puppy behavior: lack of following commands, leash pulling, counter surfing, stealing food from your hands, jumping to greet, etc. Over the two weeks Archie will be working on his off leash obedience and manners. Check in to see his progress!

Archie has settled in well at my home. He was a little nervous around all my dogs, when he first arrived, but now is having a blast with them!

Today Archie and I went to the park to start his first day of training. I introduced and conditioned him to the Ecollar. We practiced commands place, sit, and heel. Place is a command where Archie must sit or lay on a defined object. This command is great for building confidence as well as teaching him to be calm and relaxed. Heel is still a work in progress but Archie is walking a lot better now at my side.

Today Archie and I went back to the park to work on his commands. We met with a few other OffLeash SoCal trainers, so Archie got to practice around dog distractions. We practiced more of Place, Heel, and Sit. We started working on Down and Come. This boy can run and play for hours, but is pooped out after ten minutes of training.
