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!

Had a lovely training session with this guy today. For a long while now I have been ill, and my training motivation hit rock bottom, leading to him not being trained to cope with every day life. Extra has not suffered from this, we have not trained these things because they have not been a part of our life. The mayor thing to teach this guy is to stop herding cars, and today's training started at the end of a big field next to the motor high way. We worked our way towards the driving cars, reinforcing contact, calm behaviour and ignoring the cars. The reinforcement was delicious wiener bites and the occasional tug toy when the situation called for it. I am still amazed about the suverinity of this dog! Even though he for 3 years has been herding cars whenever we have gotten close to them, this was an easy training. We got so close to the highway I had to stop because I would not go any closer to the moving cars, not because it was too much for him to handle! It was almost like herding cars never had been any issue at all ever in his life. One should never underestimate the power of reinforcing the behaviour we want of our dogs. I dared having him off leash as shown in the picture here from today, though I am not a fool: I went back to the safer side of the field just in case and I will never have any dog of any sort strolling close to the road off leash. This training session made me remember the good feelings about training dogs, why I used to love it so much and why I wanted border collies in the first place. It was just what I needed to get back in the saddle after such a long absence from what I have been doing for so many years! Today was a good day. Thank you Extra, for being such an awesome dog! 💪 #dogtraining #dogtrainer #positivereinforcement #clickertraining #bordercollie #awesomedog #happydog #dogowner #dogbehaviour
