Puppy Gaetz - Lesson four

He's growing up! Belgian Tervuren Gaetz is now three months old; this is his fourth lesson overall and his first on heeling.  Gaetz and mom are doing a really nice job.

This lesson introduced heeling (handler generated interest), recall from distraction and continued work on the platform.  Soon we'll add a dumbbell retrieve.

Take particular note of the recall portion; Gaetz's good choice to come away from distractions.

In my next blog post, I hope to compare and contrast the foundation skills that each puppy has worked on.  (Kismet, Gaetz, and Ziva).  Each lesson/video has focused on something slightly different; yet all of the puppies will learn all of the foundation skills over time.

Thanks so much for posting. Your techniques remind me a lot of what I am seeing on Susan Garrett’s puppy peaks program. Since Susan primarily trains for obedience it is so nice to see someone applying the shaping techniques for obedience.
