Pinky | Goldendoodle | San Dimas, CA | In-Training


Pinky, a one year old Goldendoodle, has joined OffLeash SoCal for our There Week Board and Train program. She comes to us with lack of following commands, leash pulling, jumping to greet, being easily distracted and overly excited. Over the three weeks Pinky will be working on her off leash obedience and manners. Check in to see her progress!

Pinky has settled in well at my home. She is having a blast with her new friends! She has been playing nonstop since she’s been here.

Today Pinky and I went to the park to practice her commands. I introduced and conditioned her to the ecollar. We worked on two commands: Sit and Place. Place is a command where Pinky just sit or lay on a defined object. This command is great for building confidence as well as teaching her to be calm and relaxed. In the video you see she is unsure of the dog cot, so I’m not using the ecollar until she is comfortable and understands what I am asking her to do. Once she felt confident placing on the dog cot I applied ecollar. Pinky did a great job on her first day of training.

Today Pinky and I went to the park to work on her obedience. We practiced commands Place, Come to Sit, and Heel. Heel is still a work in progress but she is walking a lot better now. She stays closer to my side and focuses on where I’m walking.

Today Pinky and I went to the park to work on her commands. We practiced two new commands: Down and Come to Heel. Come to Heel is a bit tricky. She has to walk around my right side and sit on my left (Heel) side). Pinky is starting to get the hang of it. Down is only fun for her if there’s a treat involved. If not, she’s not so willing to follow through with it.

Today Pinky and I worked on her obedience at home. She still gave me a hard time with Down. She is getting better with her focus on me. We also practiced her Canine Good Citizen requirements. Pinky must pass all ten requirements to get her Certificate.
