Cooper| Husky mix| Pasadena, CA| In-Training
Meet Cooper, a goofy 6 month Husky mix from Pasadena, CA! He will be joining Offleash SoCal for our Two Week Board and Train Program! Cooper is your typical energetic puppy who just needs some guidance. Cooper loves to pull his owners around while out on walks and gets distracted very easily. During his stay, he will be working on Basic Obedience, Leash Manners, Puppy biting, and Greeting Manners! Stay tuned for his transformation!
This afternoon Cooper and I spent the rest of the day taking walks around the neighborhood so that he could adjust to his new surroundings! We spent some time relaxing on the grass at the park and getting acquainted with each other! Cooper is such a good boy that enjoyed getting head rubs and belly rubs! Even though he pulled on the leash most of the walk, I wasn’t too worried because we will start his training tomorrow. Today is just about letting Cooper acclimate and decompress from traveling and being in a new place!
Today Cooper and I spent some time walking around the neighborhood and starting to shape the Heel command. Cooper was very energetic and wanted to smell absolutely everything during our walk. He did very well when he wasn’t distracted by things, but when something caught his attention he would ignore me. Later we stopped at a quiet park and started shaping Place and Come. I used some of his treats to guide him to the correct position to help start the shaping process. He was very eager to work and listen until something caught his attention. So far, good first day of training for Cooper!
Today Cooper and I started our morning with a walk around the neighborhood and worked on Heel. He was a bit hesitant while walking if he felt any type of leash pressure around his neck. I believe this is due to him being used to walking and pulling on a harness. After a bit of walking and guidance, he started to walk a little better! Later we went to a park and continued working on Heel and Place! He was again a bit dramatic with his dislike to leash pressure but after a little time started walking better! Later we spent some time playing and exploring my yard!
Today Cooper and I started the morning with a structured walk around the neighborhood to focus on Heel and getting him comfortable with leash pressure! He was very good most of the time but had a few moments where he would just lay down and not want to walk anymore. Later we went to a park and worked on Heel, Place, and introducing Down! He did fairly well with his commands but struggled with Down due to not liking the feeling of pressure. After a few times of repeating the motion of Down, he caught on quickly! Later we spent some time hanging around the house while watching Stranger Things!
Today Cooper and I started the morning with our routine walk around the neighborhood and focused on Heel, Sit, and Come. He was pretty good for the most part but sometimes struggled with Heel cause he would get distracted by a smell. When this happened I told him “off” and redirected him! Later we went to an outdoor mall and worked on Heel, Come, Sit, Place, and Down! His heel was better this time and he walked nicely next to me! When we worked on Place, Cooper sometimes got complacent and tried to lay down when told to Sit. When this happened, I would usually give him leash pressure upward so guide him back to a Sit position. While working on his Down, Cooper would sometimes get argumentative and start to become vocal because he didn’t feel like doing the command or he would alligator roll to avoid doing the command. Cooper also doesn’t seem too interested in eating his full meal so I will add some chicken to his food to try to entice him to eat more!
Today Cooper and I started our morning kind of early due to the temperatures getting hotter by 10am! We went on our routine structured walk around the neighborhood and focused on Heel, Down, Come, and Place! He did pretty well and stayed focused for majority of the walk. Due to Cooper being still young, he sometimes gets burnt out quickly. Later we decided to go to Lowes because it was too hot to work outside. We focused on Heel, Duration Down, Place, and Sit. He got distracted a couple times during our training session due to carts and loud noises but quickly focused back on to me once I said “off.” Later in the afternoon we spent some time indoors watching tv and a couple movies!
Today Cooper and I started the morning with an early structured work session around the neighborhood and focused on Heel, Down, Come, and Sit! He did pretty good for the most part but sometimes struggles with Place and will move to adjust and fall off. This is mostly due to him still trying to figure out his body and how it works! Later we stopped of at a park that had a pond and worked on Place, Heel, Come, and Sit! He did well for the majority of the time but does sometimes like to scratch at his collar. When that happens I like to try and move him around quickly so he doesn't have the time to think about itching himself! Later we spent some time relaxing in my yard with my personal pups and give Cooper some time to play and relax!
Today Cooper and I started our structured walk earlier due to the temperatures getting hotter around 10! During our walk we focused on Heel, Down, Come, and Sit. His heel has gotten pretty good over the past few days and he tends to stay very tight on your leg. With his down, he still has some struggles and wants to roll on his back as a way to avoid doing the command. When he does this behavior, I will get him up quickly and put him back into the command. Later we went to an outdoor mall and worked on his commands in public. He did pretty good overall with only a couple mistakes due to distractions!
Today Cooper and I had an early start due to the temperatures being hotter starting at 10! We went on our routine structured walk around the neighborhood and focused on Heel, Down, Come, and Sit! He did fairly well with most of his commands on a longline but due to his puppyish personality, he tends to get spaced out or distracted very easily. Sometimes while we are in a Heel, Cooper has moments where he gets bored or spacey and will decide to walk off and run on the grass. While working on Place, Cooper will try and readjust himself but end up sliding right off due to not understanding his body or how it works. Later we stopped at a tennis court and worked on Heel, Down, Come, and Sit! He did pretty good with most of his command but again tried to walk away multiple times due to getting distracted and having a small attention span. During the evening, we spent some time in the yard letting him relax and smell the plants!
Today Cooper and I had a more relaxing training day due to the hot temperatures and wanting to give him some time to play and enjoy his time! We did start with an early structured walk around the neighborhood to work on Heel, Down, Come, and Place! He did pretty well for the most part and only got distracted twice during our walk. Afterwards we spent some time at home and relaxed in my yard and let Cooper play or explore around! He was very well behaved while outside and only had one moment where he jumped on my grill.
Today Cooper and I started our morning with a routine walk around the neighborhood and focused on Heel, Down, Come, and Sit! He did well with most of his commands but got distracted a few times due to leaves blowing. Later we went to Petco and worked on Duration Down, Come, and Heel! He did very well with most of his command and even remained in Down when dogs passed by him! After we got home, we worked on Door Manners and made sure he understood what that meant and how to control his impulses!

Cooper and I started the morning with our routine structured walk around the neighborhood and focused on putting all of his commands together! He started out very strong but after about 20-30 minutes into our walk, Cooper started getting bored and distracted. Later we met up with other trainers at the Outlets and worked on distractions and his basic commands! He was a bit distracted and just mainly wanted to explore. Later we spent the evening watching movies and relaxing around the house.
Today Cooper and I started our day with a structured walk around the neighborhood and focused on Heel, Down, Come, and Sit. He did well for the most part but got distracted twice due to a seeing a kid run around playing. When that happened I quickly told him “off” and we continued working! Later we stopped at a Mall and worked on all of his commands while lots of people walked by him! He did well and only broke his command one time due to getting bored and distracted. Afterwards we went to decompress at a nearby park where I let him smell around and just relax!
