Toka and I continue to plug away at rudimentary obedience skills. We also play (a lot!) too. He loves toys, and gets extremely animated when I pull out a toy when we’re training. Funny little red dog!
Here’s a short clip of us practicing heeling today. I’m walking slowly to make sure I can deliver a reward quickly. I’ve got to fix where I reward him — you can see that he’s crabbing (his butt is swinging out). His attention is good! And his head & shoulders are lined up where they should be. A good start:
Here’s some focus work we did yesterday. There were 3 chickens running about in the yard – he ignored them. Good boy!
This is a clip of the little guy practicing his first stays. We need to work on this.
