Sadie | 7 Months Old | Goldendoodle | Altadena, CA | In Training
Updated: Mar 7
Sadie is a very energetic Goldendoodle who is joining us for the next two weeks as apart of our two week board and train program. She has a lot to learn about leash manners and greeting people calmly. With all of her confidence and energy, she can't wait to get started with her training!
Sadie off to a good start on her first day of training. We practiced heeling for a very long time today. She is taking some time to get used to the E Collar but slowly learning. A bit stubborn at first but she begins to follow commands more after a few minutes of working. We've got lots of work to do these next two weeks but Sadie is up to the challenge.
Sadie out getting some socialization on a field trip to Lowes. She practicing calmly meeting strangers and her leash manners. Walking around all of the distractions you find out in public she had to try extra hard to ignore all the exciting new things we were passing.
Sadie out at Fashion Island today working on following commands around other pups and ignoring distractions like people wanting to pet her and little koi fish swimming in a pond next to her.
Took Sadie out on her first off leash walk today around my neighborhood. She did fairly well having to receive a moderate amount of corrections from the E Collar but kept up her pace with me and didn't stray too far from me left side at any point.
Sadie did some heel practice today at Lowe's. It was so hot outside we decided to do some practice placing on the furniture indoor and enjoying the air conditioning. Her heel is getting better and she's starting to ignore more distractions around her. She still needs a little warm up before she begins to really behave and focus.
Sadie out with Opie this evening doing some practice heeling around another dog. Sadie loses focus sometimes around other dogs so I've been practicing getting her back in to her commands and out of constant play mode. Shes just so excited about new friends!
Sadie out dropping my niece and nephew off at school today. She practiced staying calm around all the loud excited kids. We also did some heel, sit and down practice around an audience while We waited for school to start.
Sadie doing some heavy socialization work out at the mall today. Sadie does her best to push passed all the exciting distractions there are out in popular areas. Giving her a chance to warm up to her new environment first a bit before we start to do some training exercises seems to really help her focus.
Today Sadie did some off leash heel at a crowded collectable show full of all kinds of distractions and did a very good job at ignoring them. Sadie is a curious pup who wants to explore the world but is ready to ignore them when it's time to train.
Sadie doing some socialization training at the apple store. Lots of curious people wanting to pet her. Which gave us lots of practice for nice and calm greetings.
Sadie came out to join me today for some grocery shopping. She practiced staying focused on me and ignoring all the distractions around her. She kept wanting to play with the shopping cart so we had to practice ignoring it.
