Kaia | Golden Retriever | Los Alamitos, CA | In-Training
Kaia, a one year old Golden Retriever, has joined OffLeash SoCal for our Two Week Board and Train. Kaia comes to us with lack of following commands, not walking properly on leash, jumping to greet, and counter surfing. Over the two weeks Kaia will be working on her off leash obedience and manners. Check in to see her progress!
Kaia is settling in well at my home. She is getting along great with all the other dogs. She has been running around and playing nonstop since she got here.
Today Kaia and I went to the park to work on her obedience. I introduced and conditioned her to the ecollar. We practiced commands Sit, Place, and Heel. We met with other OffLeash SoCal trainers and their dogs, so Kaia had plenty of distractions to work around. She did a great job on her first day of training
Today Kaia and I worked on her obedience at home. We practiced more of Sit, Place, and Heel. We started working on the Down command. I used her friends a distractions and let them play while we trained. She was a little distracted and wanted to join in on the fun, but I made sure she followed through with her commands. Once training was over, I let her go play and socialize with her buddies.
Today Kaia and I worked on her obedience at home again. We practiced more of Sit, Place, Down, and Heel. We need some more work on her duration (holding commands longer), but Kaia is doing a great job with her training!

Today Kaia and I went to La Mirada Park to work on her obedience. We practiced all her commands and worked on her duration and distance. She did pretty well. She was being a little stubborn with her down command, but I made sure she followed through.
Today Kaia and I went to the park to work on her obedience. We met with other OffLeash SoCal Trainers and their dogs, so she had plenty of dog distractions to work around. I had Kaia work with other trainers to 1) learn to follow directions from someone else, and 2) to be okay with being separated from me. It was a little hard in the beginning; Kaia was more concerned on where I was than listening to the other trainers and wanted to say hi to all the other dogs. As she continued to train, Kaia was able to settle down and be more attentive to the trainers and focus on her commands.
Happy Valentines Day! Today Kaia and I went to the Citadel Outlets to work on her obedience around distractions. She did very well. We worked on her commands semi-off leash. She was focused and obedient. Kaia had a few admirers stop to watch her train. They complimented her on how well behaved she is.
Today we took Kaia down to Huntington Beach. A new trainer worked with her, and they practiced her commands. She did well with the added distractions around her. In the beginning she did struggle a little with come to sit, but after some repetition she got it down. We practiced her commands semi-offleash. I let her drag the leash around while we trained.
Today we took Kaia went to the park to work on her commands. She practiced all her commands completely off leash! We met with other OffLeash SoCal trainers and their dogs, so she had plenty of dog distractions to train around. We walked around the pond where she saw ducks and geese. She was a bit curious about them, but she stayed focused and followed all her commands as we trained around them.
Today Kaia joined me on a shopping spree at Del Amo Fashion Center. She practiced her off leash obedience around high distractions. She did an awesome job! She was focused and obedient. Kaia received many compliments on how well mannered she is.
Today Kaia took the day off from training and spent the day socializing with her friends. I gave her a bath so she could be clean when she sees you tomorrow, but as you can see in the photos, it didn’t last very long. She rolled around and wrestled with her buddies getting all dirty again. Kaia had done a great job with her training! She can’t wait to go home tot and show you everything she has learned!
