Training Grads - Day School

As a fairly new addition to the family, Blaze was very dependent on her brother Otto, and wouldn’t even accept treat-reward if her Otto wasn’t present. She’s now become more independent and will answer verbal and signal cues, even in distracting and new environments. She does a great job on walks, keeping a loose leash, and answering the “leave it” cue for upcoming, passing distractions. She also excelled at multiple cues, for extended periods of time, including “go to your bed” – “sit, stay” – “down, stay.”

Helly had issues with basic commands (sit, down, stay) in environments of high-level distraction, but she did great with these commands towards the end of her training. She also made significant improvements with attention and with her patience. She did great with “leave it” and loose leash walking.
