*drained* It takes a bit more energy training, walking, and then training 2 dogs than it does just the one.... o_O
Jacks = I did round the clock articles with him. Bertie was fit to be tied trying to get to the cheesed article while my sister hung onto him for me.
I put the scented article off to the side and worked on retrieves seperate, before I put the cheese on it. Then I put the cheese on it and started going around the clock with it, helping him out and REALLY partying when he actually picked up the licked clean article on his own. When I had all the metal articles down, I stopped where I was and moved to the side to work on straight (no cheese, away from the pile) retrieves again with the article and then I went back to finish the clock. And I had a few REALLY NICE retrieves in there.
I did a few take its with the metal article with Bertie. Some take its. Some "hold" starts (me standing behind/over him for control).
We went for a walk and came back and fed both dogs.
I snuck away while the boys were eating and tried to hide, but Bertie came RACING down to find me before I could manage a decent hide. I think we are bonding just fine.
I asked him if he wanted to train. Didn't shout it or anything, but Jacks came flying downstairs. I suspect he was eavesdropping at the top of the steps. LOL.
So he had to practice stays...
I worked on heeling (not using the word) with Bertie. Introduced left circles and left U-turns as I'm REALLY trying to teach this puppy how to move his butt in early. I started too late with Jacks.
We also did stands - he's standing on command.
And then 10-second sit stays.
And now I'm sitting here and can't get up and thinking about how I'm going to do all that again tomorrow and then the next day.....
