That one-on-one time so we’re gonna give Us some time to adjust I’m putting a Long lead now on Big Foot just to give Them a little bit of a greater area to Roam around and check everything else Let’s go see what’s over here Big Foot It’s really important for dogs to get Comfortable with and take in their new Environment they’ve got to appreciate All those smells and sights and the wind And all of those things those all affect Your training and if they’re too focused On those things then it’s hard to Connect with them so better to let them Get it out of their system and just take It all in hey what’s this let’s say oh Look at that guys alright so that’s an Encouraging sign as far as I know Bigfoot’s never been here before and He’s playing with a tug toy what’s the Significance of getting him to play with A toy well his mindset appears to be Pretty happy and optimistic and excited Right now he’s focused on me cuz I’ve Got the toy those are two really Important things when you’re training a Dog I’m gonna make the toy boring and See if you let’s go yes drop it kind of An accidental let go but notice I’m Gonna give him the toy right back so We’ve done a little bit of playing with Bigfoot we’ve let him explore a little Bit I think it’s time to see what he can Do I’m getting him to take a treat from
Me to let him know look I’m good I give You good stuff does he know what’s it Not a bad start I love it sit how about It down oh good job buddy that’s great Now let’s see what happens if I say down See he’s confused when I point to the Ground if I lure him that’s great but Look I got a bend over here and hunched Down maybe I don’t want to do that so Let’s see if we can teach Bigfoot to lie Down while I stand up the way to do that Rather than just luring him like I did I’m gonna do like a half floor I’m not Gonna go down quite as far down very Good so that way I was only down half Way and we’ll bring him in to enough Just by luring him there Good job do you see the difference Though from here listens very readily When I do it just like that as compared To down see that completely different We’re only a couple of inches away That’s how nuanced your communication Can be I’d like to see if we can improve On that real quick he’s a sharp dog you Can see just working through that a Little bit with them going a couple of Times showing him exactly what you mean It’s a good way to improve communication And broaden their view of you and by That I mean if you can really get your Dog to focus on you in a variety of Different contexts it really helps to Broaden your communique
With them let’s work on stay now and see How he does let me give him a hand Signal with Stacy we get him to stay for Five seconds stay one two three four Five works for me let’s see what happens When I walk away though stay okay come On let’s go get over here and look come Win calm he’s really a smart boy he’s Doing so well it’s really important that Our dogs know how to stay and how to Come when we call them I think as long As his new family continues to work with Him on his basic obedience that should Be looking good but I did notice that Before he was pulling on the leash quite A bit I’m gonna switch back to a regular Leash in let’s see how he does on his Leash walking skills leash skills are Incredibly important for dogs especially A big strong dog like Bigfoot you want Him to be very obedient on leash so I’ve Got his currency I’m using good treats Today the way I like to start a leash Training session is really just by going Back and forth and rewarding liberally When he pays attention to me and so you Can see there every time he’s pulling Ahead I’m just encouraging him to come Back and part of the reason he’s doing So well is because he’s been out here We’ve been doing training he’s gotten a Little bit of exercise that sometimes is All you need to get a compliant dog Bigfoot is a perfect example of how
