Meet client puppy Winston! ❤ Winston is as clever as he is adorable. 😀 We went over strategies to reduce nipping (which fortunately resolved relatively quickly, praise dog!), leave it (I've never seen a puppy learn this so quickly, within minutes he was flying backwards avoiding the inappropriate items!), leash walking, counter-surfing (teaching "go to bed" during meal prep and meal time for the win!), coming when called, and lay down. We also discussed how to get him comfortable in his crate when they aren't home - a rare event during Covid. Top tip: get the dog comfortable being in the crate when you are home and in the same room first, then home but out of view and finally out of the home for very short moments leading up to the amount of time you need to be gone. Baby steps!

I also had the joy of introducing him to another client who lives nearby and their puppies enjoyed having a puppy playdate. What a nice way to channel some puppy energy! ❤

Meet client dog Pumpkin! We primarily worked on his behavior around dogs and young children. He would (supposedly) bark at both while outside though I found no evidence of this during our lessons. 🙂 Pumpkin learned to check in, hand target, pass by and ignore people, dogs and inappropriate items when requested as well as to sit/wait before greeting anyone. He was a perfect gentleman, and loved learning and earning! ❤

Meet client dog Birdie! Thanks to Tanzi @ Dog Crazy Lady for referring her to me. 😀

We started off working on not jumping on people aka polite greetings. Birdie made good progress by keeping her in the crate until company arrives and settles, and then by taking the focus off the guest and putting the focus on her own people and earning rewards.

We worked on loose leash walking, coming when called, wait and stay. She learned all of these behaviors amazingly well and is doing great with all of them! ❤

Now, back to polite greetings. Her family absolutely loves when she jumps on them - and that's ok - their dog, their rules. They recognize that she is getting mixed signals since their own kids encourage the behavior that it will take longer for her not to do that to others. And so the compromise is to avoid those people and situations where others are not so interested in being jumped on by a doodle. 😀

Meet client puppy Marla! She is mighty and she is magnificent! ❤ We went over how to potty train, how to reduce nipping, coming when called/Here!, go to her play pen on cue, drop it, leave it, wait and leash walking (mostly trying to keep her head up so she won't eat worms and other nature).

Marla did a lovely job learning despite her big brother Mugsy trying to insert himself into the action at any given opportunity.

Meet client dog Dino! We focused on reducing barking, go to bed, coming when called/"Here!", and leave it and drop it.

Dino needs to be put into Plastics Anonymous since he is obsessed with all things plastic. We've been able to get him to stop barking at a plastic bottle of Windex sitting on the counter and leaving a low-value item. He can now drop his toys on cue too. However, his obsession is plastic (and the broomstick) and that remains a work-in-progress. My clients tell me that he loves plastic water bottles and if he finds one on a walk, he heads straight home. If only he would drop it in the recycling bin, perhaps one day! ❤
