More Distraction Training

Posted by , 17 September 2008 - - - - - - · 158 views

The day after their dentals, I had my regularly scheduled agility class with Al.  He had been through enough this week, and was on pain meds so there was no way I would put him through that.  If he wasn't feeling himself there was no point in making him do anything, although he was in good spirits and...

I've been really encouraged by the amount of interest that Simon has in me now.  It has been an amazing transition in him and seems to be exponential.  He is really paying attention to me now, is always watching, and has become much more affectionate with me.  He has always been willing to offer his...

Thanks to Laura for filling me in on how to use the blog feature!!

Today Simon went to Agility Class with Al.  Simon watched Al run while he(Simon)from his crate.  This was a little hard on him as you could hear a lot of grumbling and unhappy sounds while we were out on the course; but it's not like it used to be...

Simon Learning Weave Poles

Posted by , 01 October 2007 - - - - - - · 281 views

Hi Everyone.

This is an experiment.  I have been working with Simon learning the weave poles.  I've been at it for just over 3 weeks, and have kept track of the number of sessions I have had with him working on the poles.  Today was the 15th session.  

For us a session is usually less than 5 minutes of training time.  It...
