Pre Beginners and Good Manners Beginners Classes Week 2!
How is your training going?
Hope you all enjoyed the first session of the Pre Beginners/Good Manners Beginners Class last week. In both classes we learned or reviewed the hand touch. Remember not push your hand toward your dog. If something comes toward them, they tend to retreat. Dogs in general prefer following moving objects. So, if they don't show interest in your hand, 1) hide your hand once and then present it again, 2) repeat closing and opening your hand, 3) move your hand away from your dog, or 4) step back to let your dog follow you. Once your dog has learned the trick, it will be a valuable asset for you!
According to the weather forecast, it is likely to be a nice day tomorrow. We look forward to learning more with you all!!!
