In this short video I’m work harry over a barrier! the strip of grass I’m working over may not look much to ourselves but some dogs really struggle with barriers in training.

I’m still really pleased how Harry is progressing and hopefully it continues

Rocky – 12 week old chocolate Labrador male puppy

Rocky is a new edition to the kennel and is trying to find his feet.

Rocky has come from a pet home showing all the bad habits which generally come from to much freedom, not enough boundaries and too much love and affection!

This will all sound very strange to many dog owners! How can you love them to much?

To much love with no boundaries gives a puppy no direction in life allowing them to try and call the shots. They generally become very boisterous, vocal, hard mouthed and frantic in their behaviour.

The British Veterinary Association recommend 5 minutes per month of age regarding hands on training with young puppies. I would imagine a huge percentage of people overdo this by some way.

Dogs generally look and need a good leader, we will see how Rocky’s progress comes on with the right training. I would imagine he will enjoy the early days but when things become more serious he will ask more questions of me. We want his early training to become smooth but unfortunately it will be a rocky road to success!

Harry – Training is starting well.

I have been and done the same activity with Treacle but a different way round to keep her on her toes!

This time she is showing more confidence that there is something to find when i send her in a certain direction.

Really pleased with the outcome of this training session.

Treacle – Starting to see if she understands directions to blind retrieves.

As treacle is coming on in her ability i am now trying to test her a little to she how capable she really is.

THINGS TO REMEMBER AT THIS STAGE.

*Her age.

*We are only training so if she needs help i will give help! I wont let her confidence go backwards intentionally.

*Watch and learn how she works things out.

Training – A blind with a marked retrieve as a distraction.

Below i have added two videos, the first is of Treacle our 9 month old black Labrador and the second is Timber our Golden Retriever who’s 2 years old.

I’m doing the same activity with them but they are at different levels as you will see.
