Zero | Cavapoo | Los Angeles, CA | In-Training

Zero, a two year old Cavapoo, has joined OffLeash SoCal for our two week board and train program. He comes to us knowing commands but not always following them, jumping to greet, being easily distracted, and counter surfing for food. Over the two weeks Zero will be working on his off leash obedience and manners. Check in to see his progress!

Today Zero and I went to the park to work on his obedience. I introduced and conditioned him to the ecollar. We practiced commands Sit and Place. He did very well and caught on to his new command quickly. Zero was a little nervous and distracted with our surroundings. We met with other OffLeash SoCal trainers and their dogs, so zero had plenty of dog distractions to work around. He was a little  timid when the other dogs approached to say hi.

Today Zero and I stayed at home to train. We practiced more of his Sit and Place commands. We started working on a new command, Down. Down is Zero’s least favorite command. He gave me a bit of struggle with this one. After some repetition, he started to lay down on his own without my assistance.

Today Zero and I went to the park to work on his commands. We practiced more of his Sit, Place, and Down commands. He did much better with the Down today. We also started working on a new command, Heel. Zero isn’t too bad with the walk, but could definitely tighten it up. He is a little too distracted when in new surroundings that he doesn’t pay attention to where I am walking.

Today Zero and I went to the shopping outlets to work on his obedience around distractions. He was a little overwhelmed when we first arrived, but as we walked around and trained Zero was able to settle down and focus on his commands. Down was a little bit of a struggle again, but I know it was because he was nervous. I still made sure that Zero followed through with all his commands.

Today Zero and I went to Lowe’s to work on his obedience around distractions. He did very well! We were able to practice semi-off leash. I let him drag the leash around while we trained. We just need to tighten up a few of his commands and the. He will be ready to work completely off leash.

Today Zero and I went to the outdoor mall to work on his commands. We didn’t get to practice semi-off leash. He was a little too nervous with his surroundings. Zero was able to listen and follow all his commands. He received a few compliments on how well mannered he is.

Today Zero and I went to the park to work on his commands. There were less distractions,  so Zero was more focused and able to work semi off leash. He did all his commands perfectly! We will continue to work around distractions so he can become desensitized and confident in new surroundings.

Today Zero and I went to the park to work on his commands. We met with other OffLeash SoCal trainers and their dogs, so zero had plenty of people and dog distractions to work around. I had my sister handle Zero today. He did very well with and obeyed all her commands. He also did great around the other dogs. He was a little cautious around them, but still able to focus and follow commands.

I could tell Zero was a little nervous with his surroundings, but he stayed focused and followed all his commands. He received quite a few compliments on how well mannered he is.

Today Zero and I went to the mall to work on his off leash obedience around distractions. He did pretty well. Zero heeled nicely along side me as we walked around the mall. He was a little nervous which made it hard for him to hold his commands, but I made sure that he followed through with them. Zero had a few admirers that stopped to watch us train. He received compliments on his good behavior.

Today Zero and I stayed home to train. We worked on all his commands. I used his friends as a distraction and let them play while we trained. He did great staying focused. We also worked on his door manners and food manners.

 

Pupdate 10/7/2023

Today Zero took the day off of training and spent his last day socializing and playing with his friends before he goes home tomorrow. I gave him a bath so he can be nice and clean when he sees you. I am proud of Zero and the progress he has made with his training! He can’t wait to go home tomorrow to show what he has learned!
