I am the happiest dog ever! Stealin’ hearts and takin’ names!
I love praise and belly rubs the most. People are my favorite! I also really like fetch; it’s pretty great!
I do an awesome job walking myself!
I am a very fast learner. I now walk like a pro on leash and can stop moving on command.

Dog Training Log
Dog Training Session 1
Gracie and I began working on her new and improved leash manners.
We started out by refitting her gentle leader. It was a little to big, now it is the standard size.
After practicing on the gentle leader, I noticed that Gracie mostly shut down. So we removed it and continued training without it. We practiced just on her regular collar.
After this she did much better. She preferred verbal praise and pets to treats, which is awesome!
Dog Training Session 2
You guys are the best! Thank you for practicing at home, I CAN TELL!
Gracie was fabulous today. She did really well on the leash in a low distraction space. I’d like to work more on it in high distraction, outside.
I’d also like to work on her pulling through doorways more as well.
To practice this at home, do not allow Gracie through first. Have her wait, which she is very skilled at. Walk towards her and loop back through the doorway together. This desensitizes her to the thrill of bursting through the door.
If she still bursts through, loop in and out of the doorway until she calmly goes through the door looking at you.
Next time, we will work on stopping on command and high distraction walking.
