Meet client dog silly Goose! How perfect is that? ❤ We went over how to reduce jumping, and excitement urination, how to walk on a loose-leash leash, and to listen around distractions. They were previously walking him late in the evening to avoid distractions, and now they are able to walk him at normal hours when people and dogs are out and about! Yay! 😄 He did so well after one week of walks in their city neighborhood that we ventured into a busy public park. The park is much more challenging with all of the dogs, kids, squirrels and even benches (yes, benches are super distracting! 😆) yet he's doing really well - until his paws hit the grass. He was previously allowed to run and play in the grass so walking calmly on the greens is still a work-in-progress. Goose is also doing well passing people or waiting calmly when people talk to his parents. That's no easy feat since this boy is so joyful, exuberant and sociable! I love Goose's spirit and we've trained him in such a way that we don't change that. Go Goose! ❤

Meet client puppy dog Kuma! ❤ We went over how to reduce nipping, jumping and counter-surfing, go to bed and lay, loose-leash walking, drop it and leave it, and coming when called. Kuma is doing really well with all of her learned skills! ☺ "Leave it" is still a work-in-progress with high value items. I blame the birds! 🤣 Living near the water means fish carcasses are scattered all over and they can be very prized possessions.

Meet client dog Kane! ❤️ This sweet boy is learning to keep his paws down when meeting new people and to be more manageable on leash walks. He has anxiety around noises and unfamiliar places so he’s still a work-in-progress, however he and his people are giving their all! ❤️

Meet client dog Indi! ❤️ She is learning to relax around cat sibling Kida. Previously they would take turns allowing Indi to be loose while Kida was upstairs, and allow Kida to roam around downstairs while Indi was crated. It was excellent management, however Indi barked non-stop when Kida was around unless he came up to her crate to say hello. If she was loose, she would chase him, which of course he didn't like.

While Indi is still a work-in-progress - especially due to unforeseen starts and stops beyond their mommy's control - she has made a lot of improvement.

Here are several text updates I received over the course of several weeks about Indi's improvement:

"We are training now. Indi has almost fallen asleep while Kida is sleeping in the living room - away from sight."

"I feel at such peace. The house hasn't been this quiet in a very long time. I mean, since she knew she could bark. LOL"

"I've always felt they wanted so badly to be friends and I think that has a lot to do with our progress. Both of them seem happier now that it's not so tense and the cat is really spending time downstairs again."

"Just wanted to say we had an amazing leash lesson today. Indi even went for her bone a few times, and did the play bow at least three times. No barking, no chasing so far! She is on her place with her bone and the cat is under our chair. A few times Indi went within a foot of Kida and just looked back at me on her own."

"They were so happy to be hanging together in the same space. I feel that in a month we will be in such a good place. I know the training won't end but the progress has been unbelievable."

❤️
