Joelle, Brittney, and one of our awesome clients took a trip to the farmers market yesterday to proof some obedience.
We could not be more proud of these guys. Magnus and Wade are two of our current board and train dogs. They both struggle with reactivity in one form or another, and both have bite histories on humans as well.
Polo was a previous board and train who came for a follow up. His owner is doing a phenomenal job of keeping up with his training.
This was Magnus and Wade’s first time ever at the market. They were crowded by people and a ton of reactive dogs. We understand that putting this kind of pressure on dogs can be stressful for them, but we felt they were ready for it. They both navigated the chaos with flying colors.
We worked up to this point indoors and have slowly upped distractions before this. At some point, the dogs need to graduate to higher expectations and be held accountable for any nonsense.
The structured walk is a game changer with dog training. It is the foundation of everything we do. If your dog can’t pay attention to you on a leash, then you just can’t expect them to pay attention without one. The walk is the first thing we teach dogs. It teaches the dog to respect the trainer, and it sets the expectations for what a structured lifestyle will be.
