I’ve been trying to write a nice Goodbye post since yesterday. It’s not working. He hasn’t arrive yet and I’m anxious waiting for news from John. I am also wondering how Beau managed during this long journey. I know he is a stable little boy but he is still a little puppy. So for now I leave it at this short post, and hopefully I … Continue reading Bye Beau
This week we had a great opportunity to visit children at a primary school. Since Beau will live with a little boy I want him to have positive experiences with children. If I do any environmental training with dogs in public spaces I am extremely strict in not allowing children to pet the dogs. Why? Because I think that children can easily behave in unpredictable … Continue reading Kids!
Since we have only 8 days left together I am filling our schedule to the fullest (while still making sure it is not too much for Beau’s little brain). In the last days I want to focus on three things: Tracking Crate training. In theory he is already crate trained but he will need to spend few hours in a crate on the plane which … Continue reading 8 days left
Article I read this morning inspired me to write a bit different post today. It will be about my personal experience living with an anxious dog (You can find the article here: http://reactivechampion.blogspot.nl/2014/08/its-not-your-fault-why-problem-might-be.html). If you make a silly decision to ever read any comments under a post about dog attack on fb you will quickly come across people expressing opinion that it’s never dog’s … Continue reading The anxious dog
It’s difficult to believe but Beau will leave in 14 days already. I knew we will try to get him to U.S. as fast as possible so he can start bonding with his new family but it feels like I just got him. And actually it has been 6 weeks. 14 days is till plenty of time to do a lot of training so we … Continue reading 14 days…
Let me tell you a story about little angry me. To people who know me and have seen me in situations like this before it will be a shock to learn I did not harm/scare anyone… yet. In last three days I had three situations that involved idiot owners and aggressive dogs. In one of them me, Beau, Fenix and Salma were attacked by two white … Continue reading I could just kill someone- trigger stacking 😛
Beau has very busy schedule and I’m having a hard time writing it all down. So this is my attempt at making up for last four days. On Monday Beau joined me for a day working at school. When I didn’t have to teach I took him on off leash walks; around and inside the school. I like doing as much as possible off leash … Continue reading School, trains, RIP buggy
I just realised i didn’t post anything for two weeks… It has been a busy time, fully filled with dogs and training and I wish I was more organised with writing things down. By last Wednesday my head was spinning after three days filled with training and interesting conversations about.. well training ;), tonight I just got home after giving a puppy seminar for two … Continue reading 4 December
