Penny | Labrador Retriever | Whittier, CA | In-Training
Updated: Aug 25
Penny, a 7 month old Labrador Retriever, has joined OffLeash SoCal for our 2 week board and train program. Penny is a sweet girl with lots of puppy energy. She pulls when going for a walk, jumps to greet people, play bites, and other normal puppy behaviors. Over the 2 weeks, Penny will be working on her off leash obedience and manners . Check in to see her progress!
Penny helping me feed the rooster and hens this morning. Today I introduced and conditioned Penny to the ecollar. We practiced come and sit. She decided to take a swim in our jacuzzi. The minute she saw the water, she jumped right in. She is getting comfortable around all the dogs, starting to run around, play, and chase each other.
Penny working on her loose leash heel. Still a work in progress, but she is walking a lot better now. She doesn't pull as much or as hard like before. She did a great job for her first time learning how to properly walk. Potty training is going well, she hasn't had any accidents in the house. I notice she will walk to and stand by the door if she wants to go out. She took her daily swim today in the jacuzzi again. Jumping and counter-surfing is a work in progress. She has a little bit of separation anxiety, if I step away where she can't see me, so we will be working on that as well.
Penny went for her daily jacuzzi swim this morning. She practiced commands at local church in the neighborhood. She practiced a lot on place, a great command for relaxing as well as confidence building. We also worked on her loose leash heel some more. She is doing a lot better, hardly pulls now! Potty training still going well, still no accidents in the house.
Today Penny practiced all her commands at home, to stay out of the heat. She is doing very well with her training, now i am starting to add duration and distance to her commands. After all her hard work, I took Penny and my pack to a friends house where she can do what she does best, swim! She had a great time and made a new friend, Blue the Pitbull. Once we got home, she had her dinner and went straight to her bed for a nap. No potty accidents in the house today.
Today Penny went with me to Santa Clarita to assist me with a lesson. Penny helped be a distraction for her new friend Sadie. Today was her first day officially off leash! No potty accidents in the house.
Today I took Ava to the elementary school to practice off leash duration sit/down and distance recall. She is doing a great job with her off leash obedience. Potty training is going great, still no accidents. Still working on jumping and counter surfing, she stole some food off the table.
Today we stayed out of the heat and did training at home. Penny worked on the heel command, sticking by my side with tight turns. She went for her daily jacuzzi swim. We worked on the counter surfing, its hard for her to resist nose to the table to see what goodies are up there for her.
My apologies for not having this post up yesterday. I was having issues uploading to the app. Today Penny and went to the park to work on her commands off leash. She practiced place on the park table, duration sit and down with distance, and off leash heeling. No potty accidents in the house. Penny is doing such a great job!
