Noodle | Pasadena, CA | In-Training


Meet Noodle! He is an 8 month old Mini Goldendoodle from Pasadena, CA. Noodle is joining us for our Two Week Board and Train Program! He’s here because he pulls heavily on leash, jumps up when meeting new people and eats things off the ground he shouldn’t be eating. Noodle is a very sweet and loving boy who is ready to learn! He can’t wait to show you his progress!

Noodle had a very busy first day! We had our first lesson at Huntington Beach Pier where we worked on his heel as well as getting him used to the e-collar. Noodle was a little spooked at first but he’s slowly getting the hang of it. He was a bit nippy in the beginning. He would try and bite the leash and try to spin to get out of his collar. After a couple of minutes he realized he wasn’t going to be able to get away and continued to heel. He did amazing for his first day. He didn’t mind other dogs barking at him and also didn’t mind the bikes that would pass by. He also did really well with the other trainers dogs. Noodle is being a really good boy!

Noodle went to Citadel Outlets to work on his heel command. He did try to pull me a couple of times and even tries to jump up to get get out of his collar. After a couple of minutes he seemed to calm down and started to understand what we were doing. We also introduced the come command. He struggled a little bit since he was really interested in everything around him. He worked around other dogs today, he did a great job. He is still getting used to the sensation of the e-collar so he would shake his head a bit. He also didn’t bark or get spooked by dogs and people. He is being such a good boy. We also played with his toys before bed. He is eating all of his food and is going potty like normal.
