Training Accountability: Jan 27-Feb 2 2013

Repeated yesterday's training of articles exactly as we did yesterday and it was a complete exact replica with finding the correct one and bringing it to me all four times , I think he's really getting it . The fronts on the return all stunk but we will work on that after he is solid on finding and getting them . I love when a plan starts to come together. Class tonite.

Sigh. This is not shaping up to be a good week re; working my dogs. At least they are on the field bus today and teacher & I discussed left/right heel positioning for boy-Brady which I am absolutely fine with. Fronts & finishes are really the only conflict I've encountered so far - well that and Force to Pile work ; my dogs need to be allowed to make sure there is not one that smells most like me or teacher (ie; Utility scent discrimination) so teacher makes sure he touches each bumper in the middle and there are no consequences for 'shopping' as long as they are working.

Computer problems which I have no patience for - it should just be plug it in, turn it on and voila!! Nooooo, hours last night, hours Tuesday night and probably tonight unless I decide to switch ISP providers since the blasted AT&T DSL modem just will not connect. Stupid thing apparently reset itself.

Anyhow, not much dog training being done unless 'hey, I'm busy here' counts

Sharon, I'm just thinking here, but do you think it could cause even more confusion by letting him sniff all of them and then pick up one that's not scented. Like I said, I'm just thinking, but to me it would be clearer to the dog to have them understand these are two totally different exercises than to let the dog think he can pick up anything if he doesn't find one that's scented.

Jodie - Faelan is a truly honest dog who takes any form of correction to heart, even a relatively minor uh-uh. So far, letting him shop at the pile is working well since the probable fallout from true FTP work will cause him to grap the first bumper he comes to; not good for scent articles but the idea behind FTP for field.

Since the trainer never works articles and I no longer work bumpers this is working very well; all bumpers smell equally of trainer and none smell like me So he can pick up a bumper; he now knows the difference between bumpers and articles but I did insist on this method since the 5 point hits for each no front & finish whenever he has something in his mouth just hurt his CDX scores too much. And obedience is <gasp> more important to me

BTW; he could very well be picking up the 'most' like the trainer but since he is now so fast it is not noticible.

Well.... I had to email my instructor finally because I couldn't find my notes for articles in my car. I think I left them at class. o_O I remembered the pattern for week 4, but obviously I'd been hoping to keep going, especially as Jacks has been doing good the last 2 days. o_O!

When we do articles - he is doing very well. I'm reminding him to "take it" when I see he's going nuts licking the article. Today and yesterday at least he did very good picking up the article and bringing it back. My very good boy.

I also did stays with both my boys!

Sits
Downs
Stands

I think that because Bertie knows that "Stay" means hold still, he's making the connection as I practice all three positions with him in the same quick session. With 'stand' I actually got to take my hand away from him and he held the position!

I was telling my sister this, but training Bertie's stays really brings home how HARD it was to teach Jacks his stays. o_O About the only position Jacks was handling at htis time was the "Stand". Sits and downs he would give me this look like I'd been trying to pin him. o_O!

Bertie is just like "whatever".

I also tossed the leather article for him a couple times and he brought it right back to hand.

I try not to teach wait and stay at the same time or in the same training session because of the risk of him getting them confused, but I forgot who I had and waved my left hand (stay is my right hand) at him and asked him to wait when I stepped to the side to grab the leather article. And he held the wait and came when called. Okay then.

Class starts in a while. I found a new training treat. Each cube (about 1/2") can be cut up into several smaller treats. It appears as though a little goes a long way, and they contain significantly less fat than hot dogs or cheese. I tried them out a bit for some 1/4 turns, and Bella approves. They also passed that spit test. My wife informed me that it also comes in "diced" form rather than "cubed."



I did the left 1/4 turns in the kitchen without a leash, and Bella did great! Up until today, I still needed the leash behind my back.

The only concern I'd have about the ham is giving too much. - I had it drilled in my head that "pig = pancreatitis". If you are cutting it into pieces, you should be OK.

I wasn't aware of that, but I'll research it. The pieces are pea size or smaller. Each cube yields 6-9 training pieces, depending on the size of the cube.

Some cuts of ham are fairly low in fat, so little danger of pancreatitis if you simply read the package and make sure you're not giving a lot of fat in those cubes.
