Zola, a nine month old English Bulldog, has joined OffLeash SoCal for our Two Week Board and Train Program. Zola comes to us with typical puppy behavior: lack of following commands, pulling on the leash while walking, jumping to greet, play biting, and being easily distracted. Over the two week she will be working on her off leash obedience and manners. Check in to see her progress!
Zola has made herself right at home. She is getting along great with the rest of the pack. She has been having a blast running around and playing since she got here.
Today Zola and worked on her commands around the neighborhood. I introduced and conditioned her to the Ecollar. We practiced commands Sit, Come, and Place. She did very well. She’s a smart girl and caught onto her commands quickly. Great first day of training!
Today Zola and I stayed home and practiced her obedience commands out of the heat. We worked on her Sit, Come and Place commands. We practiced a new command, Down. So for Down is not her favorite command. She loves laying down, except when being told to. Zola is a smart girl but can definitely be stubborn when she wants to.
Today Zola and I stayed home and worked on her obedience commands. We practiced a new command, heel. It is still a work in progress, but Zola is walking better at my side now. She still a little stubborn with the down command.
Today Zola and I went to the park to work on her commands. She did much better with the down command today. She put up less of a fight. The heel command is coming along well. Zola is doing a great job with her training!
Today Zola and I went to Lowes to work on her obedience around distractions. It was a little overwhelming for her when we first arrived, but as we walked around she relaxed and was able to focus on her commands. Zola did pretty well. Down was a lot easier, since she was tired from heeling all around the store.
Today Zola and I went to the park to work on her commands around distractions. We met with other OffLeash SoCal trainers and their dogs, so Zola had plenty of dog distractions to work around. She was a bit distracted at first and wanted to say hi to every dog, but I made sure she followed through with her commands. After, she relaxed and focused on her commands.
Today Zola and I went to Huntington Beach to work on her obedience around distractions. When we first arrived, she was distracted by everything going on around us, but as we walked around Zola settled down and was able to focus on her commands. She did very well at ignoring other dogs and staying in her commands. Zola did a great job!
Today Zola and I went to the park to work on her commands. She practiced all her commands semi-off leash. I let her drag the leash around while we trained. We practiced a new command, come to heel. She caught on pretty quick. We just need to tighten up a few of her commands and soon she will be working completely off leash.
Today Zola and I worked on her obedience around the neighborhood. I let her drag the leash around while we practiced. She did much better today. Come to Heel is still a work in progress. Zola is still trying to get the hang of it, but she is doing great.
Today Zola and her friend, Luna, joined me on a shopping spree at The Block at Orange. It was pretty busy, so Zola had plenty of distractions to practice around. She did pretty well, except when people wanted to come up to pet her, she would get excited and break out of her command.
Today Luna and I went to the citadel outlet to work on her obedience around distractions. Zola worked completely off leash today! She did an awesome job! She was focused and obedient.
Today Zola and I went to the Cerritos mall to work indoors and around distractions.
We worked on her off leash commands. She did great! Zola received a few compliments on how well behaved she is, and of course how cute she is. She followed all her commands, even with another dog barking at her.
Today Zola and I went to the park to work on her commands. We met with other OffLeash SoCal trainers and their dogs, so Zola had plenty of dog distractions to practice around. Once we got back home, she got a bath and spent the rest of the day playing and socializing with her friends before she goes home tomorrow. Zola can’t wait to show you everything she has learned!
