Clicker Training Class; success!

One Tuesday Kallie and I attended our first clicker training class with our new dog training school.

I couldn't be happier with the trainers and their methods. They use almost all shaping for teaching behaviors. It is all positive and all about letting the dog figure everything out instead of luring the dog into positions etc.

We worked on teaching "settle" and "Loose Leash Walking" and just behaving around a group of dogs. Kallie and another little beautiful Pit-Pull puppy around Kallies age are the youngest in the class. The class size is perfect too with only about four dogs and their owners.

Another reason I'm super excited to be training with this dog-training-school is that they also have classes for training Therapy Dogs and Rally-Obedience classes.

All-in-all I am extrememly impressed and couldn't have asked for better trainers. Looking forward to seeing how Kallie progresses.

  1. We saw your comment on Riley's blog and we just had to stop by and see another Kallie.. She is so cute. She looks a lot like Louie when he was small. Our 2 Red's are deaf so we are sure glad that you are blessed with a hearing Red so you can attend the clicker training.. We do take our 3 herding sheep. Louie usually just scatters the sheep. Callie has a lot of natural instinct and is great at keeping all the sheep together but we just have to figure out a sign to slow her down. Gus the only hearing one has already qualified for his first herding leg..
    Stop by and say hi real soon...
