Leloo had dog training last night and she did an awesome job! Yes you heard that right.
The trainer brought a gentle leader and it worked like a charm. Leloo still pulled it off her nose at one point, but I got it back on. It was a little too big for her which is why she was able to pull it off. Next week I’ll bring her’s. I never thought about using the gentle leader for training. I use it for walks here and there. Leloo did her bucking thing while we were practicing walking for the trainer so she saw what I was talking about. I just need to keep walking and she'll have no choice but to get back in line.
It was good training over all. Which is what I was hoping for since we’ve been practicing. I told the trainer about how I bought tons of treats and how we've been working hard all week. She smiled and said it shows. She also noticed that Leloo was so much calmer this week. That's because she played outside most of the day, so she had worn herself out.
We received our next assignment for next week, greeting people and other dogs. This is Leloo's biggest challege. She gets overly excited when she's meeting people. She did well with the trainer walking up, but we will be practicing this. I want her to calm down when she hears the doorbell or when people come in the door. I'll be recruiting family for this.
Next week we'll be learning how to be groomed as well. Also another one of Leloo's issues. Sort of thinking this class is more for her than the other dogs, since they all seem to be more well behaved. LOL
