Bailey is a four month old labradoodle (part labrador, part poodle) puppy in Burke, VA. She and her family got started on dog training basics tonight. She learned very quickly. She’s as smart as she is cute.
First I worked with her owners and explained how dogs live, how they see the world and how things we do can mean something different dogs. With Bailey we first worked on getting her to THINK, instead of just reacting.
From there we worked on coming when called, taught her owners how to handle her jumping or nipping them and guests.
Next time we will tackle walking on a loose leash with her.
As you can see she is pretty tired from thinking all night. She’s going to be so well behaved!
