Cosmo | Bernese Mountain Dog | Altadena, CA | In-Training

Cosmo, an eight month old Bernese Mountain Dog, has joined OffLeash SoCal for our two week board and train program. Cosmo is a very sweet and loving gentle giant. He comes to us with typical puppy behavior: easily distracted, little knowledge of commands, mouthy, jumps to greet, and barks for attention. Over the next two weeks Cosmo will be working on his off leash obedience and manners. Check in to see his progress!

Today Cosmo and I went to the park to start his first day of training. I introduced and conditioned him to the ecollar. We practiced commands: Sit, Place, and Heel. Heel is still a work in progress, but Cosmo walking along side of me with less pulling. Place is a command where Cosmo 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. Cosmo had a great first day of training. He loved spending time at the park with his best friend, Queenie.

Today I took Cosmo to the Irvine Spectrum to work on his obedience and to see how he would do around distractions. I’m not surprised, considering it is only day two of training, that he was a bit distracted with all the people and dogs there. After we walked around, Cosmo was able to focus and follow his commands. He definitely attracted a lot of attention to himself. Everyone wanted to pet him.

Today Cosmo and I spent the day down in Huntington Beach. Cosmo did a great job! He was very focused and followed all his commands. He did extremely well with the heel command, staying right at my side and ignoring all the distractions around us. Today we worked on a new command, Down. Depending if he’s tired or not, Cosmo either puts up a struggle or lays down willingly. Great job for his third day of training! He will definitely be sleeping good tonight!

Today Cosmo and I worked on his obedience commands at home. We practiced Place, Come to Sit and Down. Cosmo celebrated Thanksgiving and my family. He was a little excited when my family members came over. He tried to jump up to greet everyone, but once I corrected him he sat politely and let everyone live on him. Cosmo enjoyed a little piece of turkey dinner. Happy Thanksgiving!

Today Cosmo and I went to Los Cerritos Center to work on his off leash commands around distractions. He did a great job! He spent more time getting attention and being pet than having to work. Everyone stopped to us just to say hello to Cosmo and compliment how well behaved he is.

Cosmo got to spend the rest of the day playing and socializing with his friends before he leaves tomorrow. Cosmo can’t wait to go home and show you everything he has learned!
