Just want to give a shout out to all the responsible Pittie owners who seek professional help. These dogs are really some of the best dogs you can have, but they are powerful and sometimes their genetics can provide unique challenges. ⠀
Can’t stress enough how important it is to connect with a trainer. ⠀
One of the joys of what we do is watching young dogs mature into their potential. This is Winston. We started doing private in-home lessons with Winston when he was about 5 months. His family has clearly kept up with all of the work and it shows. This guy is well on his way to do therapy work. ⠀
If you feel like you have good control on your dog and just need a little bit of help, reach out to us to schedule an evaluation. .⠀
Did you know: Of the genetic traits that a dog inherits, some are dominant and some are recessive. Dominant traits require only one copy of the gene for the trait to be expressed. So, if either the mother or the father pass on a dominant trait, that trait will be seen in the offspring. Recessive traits require two copies—one from each parent. That means recessive traits can be hidden in the genetic make-up of a dog for generations, and not be seen until two copies of that gene are inherited by a puppy. .
Let us know... what’s some of the best training advice you’ve been given?

Being a decoy can be a gift and a curse. The gift is that you know what you want to see and how to teach the dog to execute. However, the curse is that you generally don’t have regular access to someone who can do what you want or need. I’ve found over the last couple of years I’ve had to resort to teaching a lot of exercises devoid of a decoy. For #mondiomonday, here’s me working the contact for the Defense of Handler exercise with Jones.

Coco & Jese... Sounds like a band name.
Coco is a 5 month old doodle here in our immersion program. Looking good kid.
