Second weekend at my clicker trainer education

This weekend was my second one at the clicker trainer school. I only have one word to describe it: WOW! Just by adjusting some minor techniques in the way of presenting the treat and how we start and end the short training sessions, Luna went from being all pumped up with stress and trying to show me all her tricks at the same time, to be calm and focused on the task!

It was a really fun weekend and I have learned so much more than I though I would. I am filled with motivation for training, and starting today, Luna and I are going to train almost every day so we hopefully will pass our exams in December. Keep your fingers and toes crossed for us!

This weekend we focused on criteria, fluency and securing the commands. We also learned how to effectively log our training to see just how much progress we gained (or didn’t gain). This is very helpful for our training as we can remember what exactly went wrong, what was successful and the surroundings when we trained.

During the upcoming weeks I will probably post a small bunch of training videos. I like to record my training as it is easier for me to see what I can improve in my ways of training. This will also give me more material for my new YouTube-channel (link in the sidebar). My new YouTube-channel will feature only training videos and my first channel will feature simple training videos (without much editing), more private videos (like the one from our camping trip) and other things that won’t have much to do with dog training. Feel free to subscribe and share my new channel if you want to!

I just realised I had not updated my Instagram on this beautiful little girl. Millie came back to us after being re-homed two years ago due to severe behavioural issues. She had become aggressive and fearful and the family decided it was best for her to get a new chance somewhere else. For a while, everything seemed to go the right way. Slowly she started trusting us and let her guard down and as the weeks went by she started to relax more and more. Unfortunately, this extraordinary girl, even though she had let her guard down a little, lived a life in constant fear. Every tiny little noise would make her fly up and bark fanatically, and when she was not sleeping she would pace back and forth in stress. She was wary around people and very sensitive towards body language. We could not trust her around people or children as she would send mixed signals and this girl could easily have bitten someone. We therefore decided to put her to sleep. To end her fears and axieties. Her very last day on this earth was spent doing everything she loved. We played fetch, drove the car around, cuddled and ate hot dogs. She wagged her tail from the moment she woke up till she closed her eyes for the last time. I will never forget you Millie. You were such a sweet soul, and you earned your forever-spot in my heart. You deserved better. Sleep well, my sweetheart 💕 #love #missyou #dog #dogtraining #itried #deservedbetter
We are currently up in the mountains, relaxing in our caravan. We've spent the days hiking and exploring and tomorrow we will go and try our luck with catching some fish! #dogtrainer #doggiehike #dogplay #dogphotography #dogphoto #dogoftheday #mountains #mountainhike #iloveyou
