Cheddar explored his new environment today. He was a little nervous and unsure but very curious. We went for a walk around my neighborhood while we worked on getting used to the sensation of the e-collar. He is doing a great job so far. He was exhausted from today and took a much needed nap. He did whine a bit in his kennel but after a while he relaxed. He also ate half of his dinner and went potty outside.

Cheddar was a good boy today. We worked on his heel command, sit command and door manners. He does try to rush out every time I open it so we worked on having him sit beforehand. We also worked on his heel since he does tend to pull. He is getting a lot better. He is a little nervous and avoids eye contact but he will get better. We also went to our local park to practice working around children and their families. He was really interested at first then seemed to not mind them at all. He ate all of his food and went potty outside. He is being a very good boy!

Cheddar went to Citadel Outlets where we worked on all of his commands. It takes him about 30 minutes to get more comfortable being in a new environment. He is really shy, timid and a little nervous. He is a really sweet boy and started to get the hang of his commands. Cheddar also did really well with his down commands but we’re still having a little trouble with his sit. Overall he is doing really great! He did really well with people passing and some dogs. There was a dog he barked at but not for very long. His heel is also a lot better and he doesn’t pull as much as he used to. He issuch a good boy!

Cheddar went to Petco today! He did a really good job around all of the new smells. He did try to go up to a couple of dogs but seemed to relax after a few minutes. We also went to Lowe’s to work around louder distractions. He was a bit nervous around the loading truck but tried his hardest to stay in a down. He was really curious about all of the workers and customers. His heel has also gotten a lot better! We were walking around with minimal leash pressure! He is doing such a good job! Cheddar ended the night working on his commands at The Block! He did a really good job ignoring people but was really interested in the children crying! Overall he is such a good boy and is learning so much!

Cheddar went to Santa Monica Pier to work on all of commands! He did a great job! He was scared of the water so he didn’t feel comfortable going near the edge of the pier. He did an amazing job ignoring other dogs! He also ignored passing people and stayed in a very loose leashed heel. He is such a good boy! He also played with my dog Mia today and was really happy to run around! Overall he was a really smart boy and he can’t wait to show you all that he’s learned!
