    DefaultHud the obedience dog

    Now that Maddy is nearing the end of Rally, I thought I would give her a break and start taking our male for training. He's 5 and kind of fell by the way side with Maddy's natural ability. The class I go to does a mock show once a month and it happened to be last night. Granted he wouldn't have passed if it were real, however, my biggest fear of him being off leash and taking off didn't happen.

    It's clear that with some regular training he'll be just fine with obedience and rally! Now if I could just get him to trot along instead of moving like a slug!

    That's great! I'm sure he loves being the center of attention for awhile.

    Is he ball motivated at all? I would heel while holding the ball where he can see it. Just ask for a few fast steps then throw the ball in front of you so he drives for it. Race him to it if you have to in order to get him moving. Once he gets the hang of this game, tuck the ball under your arm pit so he doesn't know if you have it and toss it when he isn't expecting it.

    Or food! Some people with slow dogs will actually run until the dog catchs up and then is rewarded for being there in heel position. Slimpified, but I think you might get the idea.

    I think a slow jog and hot dogs will probably work for him. I had better get my running shoes out!

    Thanks on the compliment...we think he's pretty hunky...especially Miss Muffinhead (Grace).
