  • FALCOR!! This little guy is so full of heart โค๏ธโš”๏ธ๐Ÿบdonโ€™t try and tell him heโ€™s got a disability, heโ€™ll look at you sideways and prove you completely wrong. Falcor was born with a deformed right front limb and a slight curve to his spine. 
He was bounced around between homes because no one wanted to work with him. They didnโ€™t think he could ever compete. Then he met @k9_sports and his life completely changed!! Falcor and Emily are a great reminder that no matter what challenges you may have, with hard work and perseverance anything is possible. Always a pleasure when our Chi-Town friends come out to train with us!! *** ACS will be putting on a workshop in Chicago March 27 - 29. Message @k9_sports for more info ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿš€๐Ÿš€

  • A little more from my shopping mall trip... as the #ParkingLotDogTrainer Saga continues...
This was a test. Obviously this IS a training session, but I was testing him and his focus. He kept his head up for a full minute before being rewarded for it. As anyone who follows me knows, in a typical training session, I normally reward CONSTANTLY. However, I need to build up mental stamina. I need a dog that doesnโ€™t check out when not rewarded fast enough.
In the other sessions I posted from this day, the reward wasnโ€™t visible. I had it out this time to push the limits of his focus a bit farther so I wanted that extra intensity. That extra intensity also caused a bit of forging in the beginning and after doing the โ€œabout faceโ€ and turning around. Otherwise, I got what I wanted out of the session. It didnโ€™t need to be perfect. I just wanted 60 seconds of focused intensity.

  • A month or two ago I was considering pulling Lark from agility. I couldnโ€™t tell if she wanted to be there with me or was just doing it to please me. She must have heard me because sheโ€™s making it pretty clear what the answer is. Sheโ€™s still green but we finally feel like a team out there!

  • DOGโ€™s are big followers of ROUTINE!
____________
If a dog knows that itโ€™s feeder or owner will come at a particular time, they will almost wait up in the most alert manner amongst all adversities.

This is the level of TRUST your dog showers on you on various situations.
Humans have a general tendency to take things for granted which throws this trust out of the window!

A dog LISTENโ€™s To YOU by choice, Only when YOU listen to it! The most Important rule between Human and DOG relationship!

So, Are You LISTENING to your Pet and following a ROUTINE ?๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ Hit a like if you AGREE!

.
Opposition reflex is your dogโ€™s natural instinct to resist pressure. While some trainers disagree it exists, I've seen it myself with some dogs (not all dogs). You pull, the dog pulls harder against you, or plants their feet. Some dogs give into leash pressure, some do not. Especially if they're nervous/fearful/confused.
.
So what do you do when your dog resists and pulls against you? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
Switch tools and change up your training. If your dog pulls and resists when you have a harness/flat buckle collar on them, use a prong or slip lead to teach your dog how to give into leash pressure in a more gentle way. Allowing a dog to hit the end of the leash in a harness is never the right way to teach a dog about leash pressure.
.
Work on teaching a heel and do not allow anything but heeling. Add a release cue so you can tell your dog when they can sniff/potty. SHORT WALKS without pulling/resisting are far better than long walks with any pulling. Giving into your dogs protesting or pulling is teaching your dog YOU give into their leash pressure. It builds a reinforcement history for the behavior of pulling/resisting. So push your dog through whatever they're protesting! If you feel like you and your dog are constantly pulling each other, contact Underdog K9 Training!

  • I was lucky enough to attend one of Kathy Sdao's labs during #clickerexpo. At its core, the message was simple yet incredibly profound: empathy should come first. This is essential no matter who we're communicating or interacting with: other humans, other animals, and ourselves. Connecting with the feelings and needs of others and even ourselves can be far from easy. But I truly believe that it's worth the effort to shift our perspectives to a more empathetic lens.

There are a lot of hard conversations surrounding nonhuman animals, like those about training methods, behavioral euthanasia and so much more. There are also moments when we're interacting with our own animals where our gut reaction may to blame them or get frustrated with them.

Next time you find yourself faced with a tough situation, I challenge you to pause and reflect on how you might respond from a place of empathy rather than from a place of judgment, anger or shame. How did the situation unfold? Feel free to share and inspire others. #empathyfirst #whatwouldkathysdaodo

I said "okay" which is their release cue And she just crawled over and collapsed on my lap and fell asleep, it was the cutest thing. She just wanted cuddles ๐Ÿ˜ญ dogs are seriously the sweetest. ๐Ÿ’•
