Eunice | 9 Month Old | Golden Retriever | Irvine, CA | In Training
Eunice is a 9 month old Golden Retriever from Irvine, CA. Eunice will be joining us for our World Famous Two Week Board and Train program. Eunice does know some basic commands, but lacks the ability to hold any of those commands. Additionally, she pulls on the leash and will pick-up food items that she finds while out walking. Eunice is trained to use a pee-pad, but while she is with us we will be also working on her ability to go potty entirely outdoors, on command. Keep checking back for daily updates, and in two weeks the final training video.
Exploring the back yard
Daily weigh in
First picture is from the morning session. Working with other trainers and other dogs as distractions, Eunice did a great job. Second picture is from evening walk. Eunice is displaying the "place" command. She is picking up the training very quickly.
Apologies for the lighting quality in the video. It was so hot last night I waited till it cooled down before doing the work, which was at about 8:30PM. The location is downtown Brea and we simply walked on a loose leash heel. Eunice did very well for her first time out with mild distractions.
You can see the time and temperature from inside my car. Crazy hot and generally unsafe to be working in yesterday, which is why the evening video.
The last two pictures were from the AM walk. This is a field in our neighborhood that has rabbits, squirrels, morning doves, and pigeons. The dogs get an opportunity to get off leash and chase the wildlife. Total walk was 3.2 miles
You can see with the daily update she only consumed half of the morning food, but did eat all the food at night (weight includes bowl). Eunice's body weight has remained consistent throughout the training.
From the afternoon work; place command with help from Oso. Oso is more of a distraction than help however.
Eunice will before the end of training be able to use the peach tree for a place object
Little play time
Resting half way on the evening walk
Eunice is doing such a great job even a 13 year old can easily walk her in a proper heel
Eunice picked up quickly that placing on the deck box gets her extra attention and affection.
Eunice in the "under" command during dinner. Other than tipping over the water bowl she was great to have with us.
Both Eunice and Oso were playing with apples off the tree in the backyard- naughty puppies!
Happy Eunice placing on Whittier Blvd while heeling off leash
A well deserved break in the shade
Eunice was helping Oso hunt rabbits and squirrels during the AM walk. Neither are very good at it as nothing was captured, lol.
When the kids play too hard...
Everyone must take a nap
Little rest time in the shade before getting back to work.
Such a pretty girl, Eunice
