Ace is at it again, this time with better coordination from both him and myself. :) The video shows the pace of almost all my training sessions with him.
You are both great and he is so cute doing his routine!!!!!! Good luck.
Arrrgh, I'm so jealous!! I wish France would hurry up and join the rest of the civilized world in regards to dog training. I'm seriously contemplating a career in being my city's only "positive methods" dog trainer. No one, and I mean no one, offering classes nor at-home sessions believes in positive reinforcement. They all think shouting and berating the dog, striking it with a newspaper, and withholding toys/food are what works. It is incredibly depressing. I would never let any of these people come within a kilometre of Ace with their so-called "structure".
I'm home all day, too, though I have two children to tend to. ;) When the oldest is in school, though, I can sometimes work with them a little bit. I have a clicker (well, 4, actually) and they both know that click = treat. I just have trouble trying to figure out what behavior to start with so I can build up to what I actually want them to do. XD
And I know the obedience will be safe for Yuki. The instructor teaches only positive training methods and works by using high-value treats. In fact, I was told to make sure Yuki doesn't eat for a few hours before the lessons so that he really wants to work for those treats.
:D Well, I have the luxury of working from home and not having children, so I have a lot of free time to watch Youtube vids of clicker trainers in action, and practice that on Ace. I hope Yuki does well in obedience! I am so hesitant to enroll Ace in our neighborhood classes; they are super old-school and I'm not sure Ace would do well under that kind of tutelage. :(
Haha, I love it! I wish I had the knowledge to train Yuki and Ellie like that. ;) Hopefully Yuki's obedience classes (starting in just 3 weeks!) will give me a good place to start from.
