A Dog Trainer’s Point-Of-View: Part Two

Written by:

Favorite Part of Training

Our dogs are very intelligent and achieve many milestones during their time at Camp K9; the process seems so natural, it is easy to take for granted. From the moment a dog is rescued, to the moment a dog graduates, and every second in-between, our trainers are developing the skills, correcting the behaviors, and shaping the personalities of our future service dogs. There is not a specific step in the process that is more important than the next; however, our trainers do have their favorite parts.

 

Konner:

“I enjoy working with dogs on basic obedience. It’s great being engaged and in tune with them and feeling that moment when things just click.”

Jessica:

“I love the my lap command. It’s great for the dog and the trainer to experience.”

Michele:

“Teaching dogs to heel and offer eye contact.”

April:

“I like teaching the basic foundation of dog training then watching the dog progress.”

 Lora:

“The obstacle course; we create new challenges for them every day.”

Christel:

“I enjoy clicker conditioning. Once they understand what the clicker means – training becomes so much easier for both the dog and the human.”

Cindy:

“Recall games.”

 Rob:

“I like incorporating distractions.”
