Graduation Day!
  • 0
  • Hurray! Kipawa just graduated from beginner puppy behaviour class! Kipawa was used by the trainer at the end of the class to show all the skills he learned. The only one he messed up on was the 'down', but we just learned that today, so I am not concerned.

    So, for the next two months, we will practice, practice, practice what we learned and then sign up for intermediate obedience. I am going to put him in the intermediate obedience with bigger dogs though. The small dogs get him too excited. I also see this at the off leash park. He is calmer around the bigger dogs.

    I'm so proud of my boy! :D :) :D :) :D

    We never did 'roll over' or 'shake'. I guess all trainers work differently. We did:

    1. Free leash walking
    2. Heeling
    3. Recall
    4. Sit/Stay
    5. Sit/Stay/Recall
    6. Down

    I guess all trainers work differently.

    Next will be intermediate obedience, then probably two classes - advanced obedience and agility. :D

    Does intermediate obedience mean we are working without a leash? If so, I will have to prepare Kipawa for that, because he is such a social butterfly - he wants to say hello to all the dogs and all the people in the class.

    I definitely thing all trainers are different, this one we have now is not doing some things we learned when I took Otis for OB training, but then again he is doing some things we didn't do then.
    We have one more class/graduation next sunday then we are off to intermediate as well.
