Freddie, a 5 month old Labradoodle from Torrance CA, went through Balanced Canine Training SoCal's 1 Week Board and Train dog training program. Freddie was trained by dog trainer Oliver Dunn, in Corona, CA.
Freddie here is a big bundle of energy with almost no limits! We went for a nice long walk this evening and practiced heeling with a prong collar. He caught on after about 5 minutes of us working. We'll be working on that more tomorrow along with basics. He ate all his dinner, and we played tug with some toys afterwards.
We spent our morning working on sitting, and holding sits for longer durations. I introduced down, but he's not a fan of leash tension pushing him down, so I'm gonna try luring him down with treats later today.
After finishing up all our tasks for this morning, we're taking a small break before heading to a park to work on our recall, and giving toys back when playing fetch.
Practicing our skills at a local shopping center! He was struggling to get on a bench with place, but otherwise did really well.
Being a good boy practicing our skills in public and around the neighborhood! We started this morning with a good play session, and he ate all his breakfast.
