Hi! My name is Lulu. I am a Bug (Boston Terrier/Pug mix)! I am a very unique looking dog.
I can be shy and sometimes bark, but I am working on my leash manners and being polite with other people.
Don’t let my size fool you, I'm one tough girl! I love playing with all of my pals in doggy daycare.
I have the most adorable ears and head tilts!
Dog Training Log
Today was Lulu first training session. She is so smart!
We started working on leash manners
She pulled quite a bit on leash
We also stated teaching the cue, "Look"
We also practiced putting the Gentle Leader on
By the end of our session she was a lot more comfortable with it on. She wore it for about 2 minutes straight without pawing at it. We will start getting her used to it in small amounts of time before we attach the leash to it.
Lulu did really well today!
We worked on her eye contact, gentle leader comfort, and eye contact on the gentle leader.
Lulu’s eye contact is looking great. Keep working with her on it, as this is the foundation to all training, especially loose leash walking.
After we had worked on her eye contact, I pulled out the gentle leader. She was so excited to see it. She had a wagging tale and extreme interest in it.
We started luring her to walk with the gentle leader.
Today we continued working on getting Lulu comfortable wearing the Gentle Leader
Great job practicing at home!
Lulu is very comfortable putting her nose through to put the gentle leader on and strapping it in the back
Lulu can wear the gentle for about 5 minutes straight without trying to paw at it
We attached the leash to the GL and she walked 7 steps with it on!
We also continued look
Today I was able to redirect Lulu from reacting when there was another dog in the lobby by using look!
Keep up the good work!
Once Lulu associates the word, Look with the action, we can move onto walking Lulu on the gentle leader and giving eye contact.
Lulu did a great job today!
We started in a low distraction area to practice “look.” She looked 90% of the time. Awesome!
Since she did so well in the low distraction area, we moved to the hallway outside daycare where there were more smells and noises. She looked 70% of the time.
We practiced “sit” which will be important for teaching impulse control. I noticed she struggled a little bit (only sometimes sitting when asked) so keep practicing!
