Lequita @ training

Post by Shisa on Fri Nov 14, 2014 3:44 pm

Some pics from last week.
She's now becoming a beautiful girl. She's still such a baby though.
A late bloomer but I think if I can get her a bit more self-confident she'll be my best worker.

Just her pretty self. love



The death trap. laughing



Recall. Kicked gravel in Sue's (trainer) face to get to me laughing



Scenting. She works so beautifully - slow and steady.



Learning to 'spin'. She's right handed (pawed?).

She's really coming on well now, isn't she? She looks like she enjoys it all as well.

Thanks!
She is coming along nicely. It's just the retrieve I'm struggling with. She also only responds to pure positive training which I sometimes forget. I work my dogs with my voice and the moment you say "uhuh" to her to mark her starting to stray, you can stop as she folds. It's been a big learning curve!

All my dogs love training, one on one time, praise, treats = good times.

I always used, " jessie, working" (happy tone) if she strayed.
She will get there. How long has she been scent training? Just don't project your frustration onto her. I know this is not you but I have seen many a dog back off because the owner is frustrated their dog hasn't got it. The dog just thinks... when I do this mum/dad arent happy.

Thanks Lorraine.

I don't get frustrated with my dogs. If they don't understand that's my fault for not 'explaining' correctly.
She just has issues with training at home. I have to put her in the car and drive 20km to get the best out of her. She's strange.
