In this training lesson, Trek responds to positive reinforcement from Chris and learns to heel. Listen for tips from Chris about how he creates small, but attainable challenges for Trek to improve his learning process.
In week three, Trek learns how to “stay” on a place board as Chris rewards him for his good work. Chris and Trek are building off of last week’s session. Trek is becoming more familiar with a leash while learning to “stay” simultaneously.
Week two of training involves Trek being introduced to a leash for the first time. Watch to find out the method Chris uses to let Trek become familiar with the leash and why you shouldn’t sweat the small stuff when your dog doesn’t cooperate.
In September of 2018, Chris had a mission. He wanted to rescue a dog, give him a home and train him to become his adventure companion. Chris came across a collie mix and they had an instant connection.
