Knight | German Shepherd Mix | La Verne, CA | In-Training
Knight, an 8 month old German Shepherd Mix, has joined OffLeash SoCal for our two week board and train program. Knight is a sweet and energetic boy. Some of the issues his owner is having with him is: jumping up on things & people, digging in the backyard, lack of following commands and being easily distracted. Over the next 2 weeks Knight will be working on his off leash obedience and manner. Check in to see his progress!
Unfortunately we had to do training indoors today because of the rain. I introduced and conditioned Knight to the ecollar. we practiced commands sit and place. Place command - command where Knight has to sit or lay on an object. This command is great for confidence building as well as teaching Knight to be calm and relaxed. Knight did great for his first day of training. He is having a lot of fun with his new doggie friends, especially his best friend Bailey!
today we got to enjoy training outsid. Knight practiced commands come, sit, and place. Knight got bored of training and decided to be silly and flop onto his back when I would ask him to sit.
Knight learned a new command today, Down. Not his favorite command to do, but we will keep practicing.
Knight working on his loose leash heel. Still a work in progress, but is hardly pulling now. He did much better with the down command today. Now to get him to stay put instead of getting up right away.
Knight working on his off leash commands. Today I let him drag the leash as we trained. He’s doing great, but still gets distracted. He’s almost there to having the leash taken off.
Today knight and I went to the park to work on his off leash commands. He did better today, paying more attention to me rather than everything around us. There was even a dog barking at us, which knight looked but kept listening to my commands.
Today Knight joined me on a little shopping spree at the Block at Orange. He did a great job! Everyone loved him and couldn't believe how well behaved he was.
Today Knight and I did some training at home. He got a bath and ran around with his friend, Bones. Knight can’t wait to go home and show you all he has learned!
