After only three weeks!

Post by DaHawaiianDS » Mon Sep 25, 2017 2:33 am

Today we met with the APA club. We were doing bite work and box work. Kapena has shown little drive and been mostly uninterested until now. This is his first bite on a jute bite pillow. And his first bite ever on the sleeve! After watching dog after dog get brought out, and get to work, to quote our trainer, it just clicked!

We know there are a few corrections that need to be made. He shouldn't be pulling, he should be pushing forward. We were concerned he wasn't showing much drive, but he was just planning his Aha moment! 😅

That is really great. It must be really satisfying to see this.
