Doggie Camp for every day life….
We like to get intensive with the training and advance the level of obedience and good manners in each of our campers… and last week was our homework day!
We had really nice obedience sessions…. We divided the dogs in 4 groups and we trained around some “every day distractions”.
The escenario was a nice table full of “smelly food” (fish, cheese, meat)…. Sometimes the food was there just as a temptation for the dogs not to steal, but other times we were eating so our campers practiced ‘no begging’.
While some of the campers were working with their down stay excercise, other member of their team was doing some recalls, heeling and waiting at the doors.
It was a difficult test…. they not only have to lay down relax while we were having a delicious lunch, but also stay calm while their playmate was doing some obedience and getting all the attention and treats! and the hardest part was when on top of all that, we call that camper in turn and he/ she happily ran in front of their noses for all the credit!
At some points we even threw a ball while they were in their down stay position! 🙂
After such a good training morning we had a lovely end of the day at the park were your dogs were free to play and enjoy their well deserve free time!!
Attach some examples of our sessions ….
Happy Training at home !!
