Obi | Wheaten Terrier | Burbank, CA | In-Training



Obi, a one year old Wheaten Terrier, has joined OffLeash SoCal for our Two Week Board and Train program. Obi comes to us with lack of following commands, being easily distracted, nipping, barking, and counter surfing. Over the two weeks Obi will be working on his off leash obedience and manners. Check in to see his progress!

Obi has settled in well at my home. He is getting along great with all my other dogs. He has been running around and playing nonstop since he has been here.

Today Obi and I went to the park to start his first day of training. I introduced and conditioned him to the ecollar. Our new trainer assisted me today and got to work with Obi. We practiced commands Sit, Place, and Heel. Place is a command where Obi must sit or lay on a defined object. This command is great for building confidence as well as teaching Obi to be calm and relaxed. Heel is still a work in progress but he is walking much better now.

Today Obi and I went back to the park to work on his obedience commands. Obi showed me his naughty side today while we were practicing his commands. He tried lunging and snapping at me when he wanted to be stubborn and not do what I was asking him. It’s okay because I’m just as stubborn as him. I worked him through his commands until he was too tired to put up a fight with me and started complying.

Today Obi and I worked on his commands at home. We worked on a few new command: Come to Sit and Come to Heel. Obi did better, gave a little less attitude today.

Today Obi and his friends, Sunshine and Tina, joined me on a shopping spree at The Block at Orange. Obi worked on his obedience around higher distractions. He did very well! Obi was focused and obedient.

Today Obi and I went to Glendale Galleria to work on his obedience around more distractions. He is doing very well with his training out in public. Obi is getting better at holding his commands longer and staying focused on me, rather than the distractions around us.

Today Obi and I went to the park to work on his commands. He started working semi-off leash. I let him drag the leash around while we practiced his commands. He is doing a good job with his training.

Today Obi and I worked on his training at home. I used his friends as distractions while we practiced semi-off leash. It was a little hard for Obi because he wanted to join in on all the fun with his buddies, but we worked through it and after he got to have his play time. Obi has a new best friend, Archie the Golden Retriever.

Today Obi and I went to the park to work on his off leash obedience. Obi is doing a great job and progressing each day. He is almost ready to be completely off leash.

Obi’s first day completely off leash! Today we went back to the park to work on his off leash obedience. We met with a few OffLeash SoCal trainers, so Obi got to work around dog distractions. Obi did very well! He was very focused and obedient. He was definitely interested in the other dogs, but didn’t try to run up to them.

Today Obi and I worked on his off leash obedience at home. We worked on his food refusal, door manners, and loading into the car. He is doing such a great job with his training! I noticed Obi‘s stool wasn’t very solid today, so I gave him more kibble and less wet food. I added anti diarrhea liquid to his meals. I will keep an eye on it and see how he does tomorrow.

Today Obi and I went to The Block at Orange to work on his off leash obedience around distractions. He did awesome! He was very focused and obedient. Obi got a few compliments today on how well behaved he is. His stool looks better today, but not quite back to normal yet. I gave him some more anti diarrhea liquid.



 

Pupdate 2/11/2022




Today I took Obi and his buddy, Archie, to Lowes to train out of the heat. He did very well with his off leash obedience around the people distractions. Obi showed Archie what it’s like to be good boy off leash. His stool is back to normal.



 

Pupdate 2/12/2022




Today Obi took the day off from training and got to spend his last day socializing and playing with his friends before he goes home. I gave him a bath, unfortunately he didn’t stay clean for long. He decided he wanted to help new guy, Loki, with his training and showed him how to Place. Obi can’t wait to go home and show you everything he has learned!
