So, woody has now been with the family two weeks and all going well overall. He came to us with some basic training but also easily distracted so to make sure I’m doing things right booked a 4 week social walking class to get us started. It’s in a big field with 4 other dogs and he did well, I think! He’s conked out and I could easily fall asleep after all the brain power we’ve used to concentrate! He seems to understand what is needed but gets so easily distracted so homework this week is definitely lots of practice of, sit and waiting until released, leave and LAM. We even managed a weaving walk through the other dogs at a distance with him staying focused on me, lots of treats involved and then keeping him focused whilst other dogs walked passed. Over the two weeks I’ve also taught him to touch my flat palm with his nose which is just a bit of fun. As well as the above need to work on the loose lead and the random barking on random nights which we know is either something in the garden or our neighbours teenage children coming in late. Any hints and tips gratefully received.
