Zoeys latest training updates.

Post by borellar15 »

Here’s some clips of things Zoey and I have been working on. Shaped retrieve and her defense of handler position. As well as some photos of her doing bite work. We’ve been working her onto legs rather than bicep bites.

Tell us about yourself: Apparently I just adopted a Dutch Shepherd. My experience have been with Dalmatians. The shelter listed her as a 3 year old Dutch Shepherd, which truthfully I didn't even know was a breed. I picked her because she is so sweet and energetic. But looking at the forum, I'm wondering if I might have taken on more than I will be able to handle. I did reach out to s DS rescue and they say she does appear to be a DS. But so far she's a joy and though not trained is catching on quickly.

I usually do but when I don’t have it or if I’ve just got too much stuff in my hands (leash and ball in other) I just use “good” as moment marker and “yes” as release/reward marker
