Hi, my name’s Johnny and I’m so sweet!
I love giving hugs and getting lots of pets.
I’m a little nervous, but that’s okay (I’m just a puppy).
Club Pet Academy taught me how to walk on a leash very politely!
Dog Training Log
Today we worked on Johnny looking when his name is called, marking the behavior with a clicker.
We learned that Johnny like his Pupperoni treats (was giving in halves) and peanut butter!
We also practiced wearing the Gentle Leader without the leash attached. He did GREAT for this!
We worked on really making him comfortable in the Gentle Leader.
Johnny did really well today. We walked on the gentle leader very politely.
He has been very good about ignoring it and enjoys putting it on. He does still paw at it occasionally.
Right now he is walking mostly behind with a loose leash. This is good!
Next session, we really need to focus on getting his eyes up and at the handler.
He sometimes looks at the handlers legs, this is a good start.
We continued working on Johnny’s leash manners, trying to get eye contact.
He maybe looks 10% of the time when turning away. He does not look when turning towards him.
He responds really well to “let’s go Johnny” to motivate him to move forward. (crouch down and lure him forward with a treat). He does not like to be gently pulled forward. He will shut down.
He also prefers to walk on a very loose leash, almost dragging on the floor.
He’s doing really well with the loose leash, about 75%. He is still struggling with making good eye contact, definitely a skill mom can achieve at home.
He does really well with verbal and physical praise!
