      Obedience I Graduate

      Mr Smartypants!

      It's been really interesting working through Obedience I with a 5 month old, and the trainer has been having a lot of fun with him. He's super smart but he has that puppy attention span. We're going to take a couple of months off from the structured classes and work on all the skills from Obedience I at home, then we'll move on to Obedience II.

      We learned:
      • Loose leash walking
      • release words
      • Sit
      • Name game (look at me when I say his name)
      • Sustained down from sit or stand until release
      • touch
      • preventing jumping on people
      • trade
      • holding a sit/stay
      • Place (or 'go to bed' as we use in our house).
      • 'zen' (taking treat calmly and nicely)
      • turning on leash and switching sides
      • up (putting paws up on a step)
      • Back up

      Congratulations! That's a nice list to have under your belt at this stage. (look at him, so proud of himself...and knowingly signaling that he expects a reward)

      Awesome. I had so much fun with Asher. We went through 3 classes over a year. He does such a great job. I know you are having fun with your little guy. They grow so quick.

      Too quick! Hes a handful but Im hoping to get his CGC soon. Im not worried at all about his ability to learn commands, its the focus that we have to work on. And I try at every opportunity.
