Hi, my name’s Archer. I like saying “hello” to everyone and everything!
I give very slimy kisses and love treats.
My favorite pass time is counter surfing, squeaking my hedgehog and playing with my new kitty.
I’ve become a pro at come, leave it, loose leash manners, and eye contact.

Dog Training Log
Dog Training Session 1
He was spectacular! We worked on leave it today and he got the hang of it right away.
When I wanted him to leave it I said Uh-uh and he picked up on this quick.
Dog Training Session 3
We worked on come again today, but this time in places of high distraction. We worked outside with squirrels as distraction and in our food hallway.
He did great with both of these spaces. We also started to phase out the treat.
Please continue to practice at home based off the information given yesterday.
Timing is very important make sure to follow the model: kissy sound (or some other interesting movement/sound) → eye contact = “yes” → Archer moves toward you = “come” → praise!
Dog Training Session 4
We worked on high distraction come again today.
Go ahead and start practicing by alternating praise. Start with a 2:1 ratio. Be random so he does not know which time the treat will be rewarded.
I started teaching Archer an eye contact command. This will be useful when Archer gets so focused on the cats. I would like to practice with him for one more session here before sending you home with it
