To recap and review
So today, we’ll recap and review things we’ve been talking about for sometime as of today. We are training today, but reviewing all our basic stuff learn to date, from the basic sit- stay- walking nicely on a loose leash and going to a spot. We’ll be working out today doing Doga session or sessions. Reviewing all our plans for the upcoming months ahead.
As always we will be armed with our training clicker and lots of treats for the pack. We will be reviewing: 1- associating the clicker 2- Getting and maintaining eye with one another 3- Keeping that eye contact for some FOCUS 4- The TOUCH game 5- The NAME game, to be sure each pack member knows when they are being called which will help in further training 6-We will be free shaping some natural behaviors and naming them as such- such as some Doga moves (i.e. downward dog, upward dog, etc) and 7- the Blanket game (or going to a specific spot, or in our case going to our safe happy place). Also being reviewed we will go over basic commands of any training- SIT, STAY, LIE or DOWN, WALKING ON A LOOSE LEASH. I will be spending time with each pack member and reviewing things separately. I will keep a list and know which we need to work more on with each pack member. Keeping notes is very important.
As I mentioned above we will be reviewing our doga moves and free shaping each move as they naturally go into their poses. I will be armed at all times with my clicker and treats. Can you imagine walking into a situation and having a pack member go into Downward Dog with me on command? Can you imagine the ooohhhs and aaahhhs? It will be a way of going to our safe happy place as well!
My plans for the upcoming months are to train to train for my 10k’s in September. The pack and I will be running shorter runs in June and part of July. In July we start our official training for September 10k’s. Then we will be planning our fundraiser during June, July, and August and then run a 10k a day in September. Hopefully getting sponsors and partners to help this event go off and successful! And by September I hope to be a Service dog team with one or more of the pack members!
Until tomorrow have a happy and healthy tail waggin’ day!
