Remember this guy?! Now he's 12 weeks old! Swipe to see his pic from 8 weeks. Such a sweet dude.

This pup 😍

Cleats is back! If you remember the first time he was all frowns.

A lot of times when pups first come into the training facility, the only other places they had been that smelled the same were vets offices, groomers or shelters. It's nice to see them learn that the training room is where fun happens 😊

Tongue out Tuesday 👅

The muddy frisbee monster Baloo bear 🐻

Rainy day training.

"Side" is a newer cue for Baloo. I spent so long working on him coming and sitting on my left I neglected the right.
.
.
Even more recently I've now started working on Baloo switching from left to right as I am walking. This allows for a quick change in sides when people or dogs or both are approaching. This is very new for him, just a few days. So you get a rough idea of what he looks like working on something new. While moving he has picked it up fast, although I need to fade out my head turning that is helping cue him. Stationary is going to take a bit longer as he is confusing it with "reverse" the behavior I had him do at the end. Watching the video I see I made some mistakes as a handler that I will change tomorrow! It's good to film yourself with your dog so you can pick yourself apart 😆😆

Say hi to Hero! He is a 4 month old Berger Blanc Suisse. Translated from French: Swiss White Shepherd. Who wants one 😆😆

I guess I could have edited the ending to keep everyone thinking I have the "perfect dog" 😆😆
.

I used to have a hard time with getting Baloo on the scale. Now he has it mastered! The vets office is still one of the hardest places to contain him 😆
.

In his defense he isn't neutered, I gave him his release word I sometimes use to let him pee and the vet said 2 other male dogs peed on that exact wall 😆🤦🏻‍♂️

Real life Red Dead 🤠

Have you ever seen an 8 week old Eurasier puppy?? Now you have 😍😍

How do you play with your dog?
.
.
Baloo prefers toys to food rewards. So when I am out with him, found toys are not play toys. .
.
In the beginning of the clip you see Baloo with a tennis ball he found. If I picked that up and played I could build the habit of him being distracted by toys in the environment. (Once he sits by my side you can see him actually stomp the floor toward the ball he found 😆)
.
.
.
I silently heel him and build connection BEFORE I take out the frisbee I am hiding. This is an important distinction. If I show the frisbee then ask him to heel I'm bribing. Baloo has learned over time that checking in with me pays off. Variable schedules of reinforcement and hiding toys / surprising with play has built this.

Second clip is some catches since the first toss I did was poop 💩
