Treacle – Back in training.

March 21st, 2019

Today I have taken Treacle back out training to see if she’s progressed since her adult teeth have started to come through.

In the last video Treacle was playing and mouthing the dummies to comfort herself due to teething. This is something we cant stop and is normal for all puppies, however its a mentality I don’t want to encourage when retrieveing.

Treacle has had nearly 3 weeks away from training so I was unsure on what she had to offer, but on a plus side we would get to see how well she has digested training so far!

Treacle is now progressing really well but i now want her to learn the difference between free time and training.

This is important so young dogs can relax, grow and absorb their training.

This was the first time i have tried to enforce the stay command when asking Treacle to retrieve an object for me.

In this video with Treacle I’m continuing to teach her to stay and wait for her dinner.

However i now start to introduce the command I am wanting to use for her to pick up a retriever, which is “Go Back”.

As you can see from my video diary with Treacle I always take my time, i don’t look to rush anything hoping for success!

When introducing something new like “Go back” i always return to a training section which will help release the pressure of training, in this case back to dinner time!

In this video with Treacle I’m starting to show how we can teach a young dog to stay with very little pressure.

In this training session we introduced Sam to cold game and the ability to jump.
After about 20 minutes of building his confidence he gave us a nice memory retrieve.

In this training video I’m trying to show how we can increase activity levels in Treacle allowing us to increase the pressure in training to accomplish better results.

When we are training a young dog we are looking at its body language and demeanor to see how they are feeling.

Just because a dogs tail is wagging it doesn’t mean their not feeling any pressure or unsure.

We have all been in the position where we have to put on a brave smile but would rather be somewhere else!

Treacle – Introduction to the lead

Yesterday i also introduced Treacle to the lead.

We use a natural slip lead for training with great results.

There are many types of lead out there for new owners to try however i feel its best to fully understand any training aid you may use before use!

As you can see so far from the videos we are showing you first hand how young dogs react and how we help them on their learning curve.

Treacle – Now we can start to have a bit of fun!

This video was taken yesterday as training has been coming on well its now to try and focus Treacle’s prey drive.

What is prey drive??

Well… prey drive is the ability and determination to chase and catch something to become food!

As dogs have been domesticated for years we try and focus there prey drive to other uses.

In this video I’m wanting the prey drive to become the focus of a retrieve.

Treacle – 1 week on.

This is 1 week on from our first installment.

Please remember between each video i have tried to carry on instruction given in previous videos.

I do not look to rush these young dogs and take everyday as it comes.

At this young age puppies have so much to learn in and around the house BUT most importantly is patience!
