So here it is ...Brambles very own training log! Bramble now 11 weeks old, born 10 December 2015, and with us for almost 3 weeks. Most of what we are doing is basic housetraining, crate training etc..well watching her like a hawk because madam...just...goes...not quite as straightforward as Benson who was a dream to house-train, took him a week and he was sorted. Brambles...hmmm...do bitches just take longer? Or as Benson was older (10 weeks when we got him) things in that department were naturally easier. She is now crate trained and happy to sleep downstairs in their during the day. She sleeps well over night, from about 11.30 through to 6.30am without a peep. She does have a playpen, however she needs a smaller space for house training so we are not using the playpen much yet, that was an investment to give our other two labs a break if they needed it. So she spends up to 1.5 hours to 2 hours at a time, this is simply for housetraining purposes right now. Training wise she has learnt a sit, and will also stay in position (all with the clicker) we are working more on a sit stay right now and the recall will come a bit later. Working on targeting, and we are not far from a good handtouch. We have also started to work on off lead, so rewarding her with a bit of kibble for being in the right position beside us. This is a game she loves! After about 3 or 4 pieces of kibble she gets a toy instead, and runs around madly with the toy in her mouth, her happy game, then brings the toy to me and she gets another bit of kibble. Later will add the "walk" cue. Bramble took her first "proper" outside walks today, she was very good. She met a few other dogs and a HORSE..which she found fascinating. Took a few photos and video so will upload those later. All in all she is a pleasure.. very bright and attentive. Although she is very bold, she is quite sensitive too, and you have to be careful of your tone of voice, or even manner as she does tend to react to this we've noticed, she is certainly not as "bullet proof" emotionally as Benson was a pup.
