Ace - Rear End Awareness Part 2 - 10 Months!

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.

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.
