Archie | French Bulldog | Los Angeles, CA | In-Training
Archie, a one year old French Bulldog, has joined OffLeash SoCal for our Two Week Board and Train program. Archie comes to us with some aggression issues. He will try to lunge and bite people. He has bitten one of the owners. He lacks following commands, pulls on the leash while walking, and is easily distracted out in public. Over the two weeks Archie will be working on his obedience and manners. Check in to see his progress!
Archie is settling in at my home. He is getting use to the crate. He was a bit vocal in the car, but after a few minutes he settled down and stopped barking. He did very well meeting the rest of my pack. I let him meet my family as well. He was okay with them for the most part. He did try to nip at my sister and boyfriend, but I corrected him and told him ‘no’ and he stopped. I tried feeding him but he didn’t have much of an appetite. I will try again later tonight to see if he will want to eat.
Today Archie and I went to the park to work on his obedience. I introduced and conditioned him to the ecollar. We practiced commands Sit and Place. Archie is a smart boy and a very quick learner, but he is very stubborn when he doesn’t want to do something. Archie isn’t used to following through or having to do what he is told, so you can see in the video he tries to resist, throw a tantrum, and even try to snap at me because I am having him follow through with what I am asking of him. It didn't take long for him to understand and he even completed the commands the first time I ask him. He didn’t want to eat his meal this morning, but ate it for lunch after building up an appetite from training. He ate most of his night meal as well. He is enjoying the crate and going in without a fuss.
Today Archie and I went to the park to work on his obedience. We practiced more of his Sit and Place commands. We started working on his heel. It is still a work in progress, but he is walking much better now. Archie is staying closer to my side and paying more attention to where I am going. He is still trying to be stubborn and not listen at times, but not as bad as yesterday. He is starting to realize that I’m more stubborn than him and will ensure sure he follows through with his commands.
Today Archie and I went to the outdoor mall to work on his obedience around distractions. He was a little distracted when we first arrived, but as we walked around and trained, he was able to settle down and focus on his commands. He did very well around all the people distractions.
