Summit | Labrador Pitbull Mix | Long Beach, CA | In-Training


Meet Summit! She is a 3 year old Labrador Pitbull Mix from Long Beach, CA! Shes joining us for our Two Week Board and Train Program! She’s here because she pulls heavily on leash, needs to learn basic obedience and barks at skateboards. She’s a very sweet and smart girl who is ready to learn! Watch out for her 14 day transformation!


 



Today was Summits first day with me. We had a mini training session after pickup, we introduced the e-collar as well as her heel. She was a little nervous at first and kept trying to pull me. After a bit of bonding time she warmed up to me and relaxed a bit. Summit did bark a couple of times in the kennel when we got home but she calmed down after a couple of minutes. She nibbled at her dinner and went potty outside. I didn’t want to overwhelm her so we kept out training session short. Overall she did a great job for her first day!

Summit went to Citadel Outlets to work on her heel. She was pulling a lot in the beginning but after getting used to the stim of the e-collar she seemed to understand that was a behavior I didn’t want. She is really anxious and timid so I gave her a couple of minutes to get adjusted to her new surroundings once we got there. She had her tail tucked and was drooling a bit, due to her anxiousness. After a couple of minutes she seemed to calm down. She did really well around other people and dogs. She got a little excited when people would pass by her and talk to her. Durning our training session there was a guy who was skateboarding past us. I was able to catch her before she started to bark. Her ears would perk up and I can hear her growl a bit, I pressed the stim on the e-collar as we passed and she seemed to have an internal battle whether or not she wanted to bark. She didn’t end up barking which was great and she got lots of love for being such a good girl! Overall, summit did a great job!

Summit went to The Pike to work on her commands around distractions. We met up with another trainer and their pup. Summit did amazing ignoring the other dogs we were working with. She is getting a lot better at her heel and doesn’t try to pull as much. She still tries to walk ahead of me but we’re working on having her keep the same pace as me. She is doing great with her down and her extended sits. She does try to get up a bit sometimes but we reset and try again. There was also a couple of skateboarders that passed us and Summit didn’t bark! She was curious and starring intently but she didn’t bark! She’s is doing amazing! Overall summit was a good girl today!

Summit worked on more of her heel today. We worked with little to no leash tension while doing her commands. There were a couple of times where she needed some guidance but overall did it on her own. Her heel is getting a lot better, she doesn’t go ahead of me as much. She is still a little timid so I give her time to adjust before we start to train. Summit was a bit nervous today working in my neighborhood. She was a little jumpy with the cars that would pass and was interested in the people walking up and down the street. Overall, summit is getting a hang of the commands and is slowly coming out if she shell.
