Last night was orientation for Lync's puppy class that starts next Wednesday.
I am super excited to get out with him & start the learning process. He already has a pretty good understanding of what the clicker means. He knows quite a few commands, sit, down, stand, come ( not reliable yet ), wait, crawl, sad, & back.
I have been working on the coming to heel position as I am walking, as well as the sitting at heel position. Basically just rewarding him for being at my left side right now.
We have worked on leave it and I can hold a handful of treats under his nose & he won't touch them. I have started focus work, so if I am standing up & he is sitting in front of me, he knows to look at my eyes to get the treat.
He works just as well for toys as he does for treats. He enjoys tugging & has a pretty good "out" command.
Of course all of this is great at home, I will have to work twice as hard in class with the distractions of all the other puppies, but I am looking forward to it. He is such a fun puppy to work with.
I think we are going to have a great adventure together!
