Buckley | Cavapoo | Los Angeles, CA | In-Training


Buckley, a three month old Cavapoo, has joined OffLeash SoCal for our Three Week Puppy Board and Train program. Buckley comes to us with typical puppy behaviors: little knowledge of commands, being easily distracted, not walking properly on leash, play biting, and jumping. Over the three weeks Buckley will be working on his on leash obedience and manners. Check in to see his progress!

Today Buckley and I went to the park to work on his obedience. Today we practiced Place, Sit, and Down. Place is a command where Buckley 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. Buckley did very well and caught on quickly to his new command. He had a great first day of training.
