Pax’e learns the gum ball machine is a nice example of trick training using a clicker.

I like using clickers for very specific tricks or tasks.

We’ll see this again when we see more of the nail board

If you have read some of my other blogs, you will know I am not keen on perfect – just getting where we want to go as happily as possible.

You can almost see Pax’e’s brain cells firing away as she tries to understand how to make the gum ball machine work.

Coda – looking very sweet

I was very impressed with Lisa’s particular attention to the character traits of the various breeds in the class, as well as her ability to understand and focus on each dog’s personality and specific needs, which resulted in a fun and highly effective training experience for dog and dog owner alike. 

Lisa’s personal attention to each student promotes a successful and rewarding training experience. Her approach to training is not only effective, but the dogs have a great time.

Puppies need to play. Like our human children, their job during development is PLAY!

Pax`e head in toy box

Don’t limit their toys.

Pax`e sits among the toys

Instead, expand their horizons because they need to explore and chew in order to learn what is and is not appropriate.

Because of this, we can use this play to teach them how to leave their toys, drop them, ignore them, and hopefully not guard them. And, we can prevent them finding toys like boots, shoes, socks, etc.

If they have plenty of proper toys to play with, it is easy to teach them to ‘leave-it’ and ‘drop-it’ and tell them “all done” when it comes to the items we don’t want them chewing.

Pax'e and the cowboy boot - YouTube

Pax’e is a nine week old AussieDoodle. In teaching her to tug at my sock, she learns that commands can be fun. She learns socks are boring. And, while she may have wanted to tug with that sock instead of giving it up at first, the ‘drop-it’ command worked.

Pax'e Sock drop it - YouTube

It’s never too early to start teaching, playing, having fun, and building your relationship with your pup.

Over the next several weeks/months Pax’e’s training exploits will be showcased. Sometimes with success and sometimes, maybe not.

Regardless of success, it will always be a learning process.

Twice a year Three Dogs Training runs its Animal Assisted Therapy Class. The upcoming class is scheduled to begin November 3, 2018.

Lisa has almost twenty years of experience visiting with her dogs and teaching Animal Assisted Therapy, Education, and Activities.

Because of her experience, this class will prepare visiting teams for various populations, facilities, and testing required for certification.

Visiting dogs can put a smile on the face of a senior who misses her dog, or help someone in rehab work through his therapy projects for the day, or sit quietly as a child reads The Giving Tree. 

And sometimes, a visiting dog goes for a walk with a person in a wheel chair who never thought they could walk a dog again.

Besides those, there are a myriad more opportunities for visiting dogs.

If you have ever wanted to visit with your dog, , or call 845.228.2546.
