Bradley' 5th Training Session

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


Hello,

This is my first post in @Silverbloggers. As you can tell from the title, this is Bradley's 5th training session. If you are interested in the others, the links are at the end of this post. I am very late in publishing this post because my mother-in-law died 2 weeks ago and I totally forgot. We actually just finished session 6 so that post will be be published in a few days.

A brief Bradley recap. He was a stray that the daughter of someone that works for my wife found. We adapted him obviously. He was a mess when we got him. He had mange, fleas, ear infection, worms and was very thin. We have all that fixed and now he is in training.

This session was suppose to be about following commands from a distance but as you see in the video, it turned into a session about how to handle distractions.

Justine, our trainer, always has 2 dogs that he boards and trains for 2 weeks before returning them. He brings the dogs to work with him so we used those dogs during Bradley's training session for the ultimate distraction.

Bradley is a "talker". You can hear him in the third clip talking. He wants to meet the other dog. He can get very demanding asking for things. A bad habit we are working on.

One of the things I have learned from these training sessions is that they are exhausting to Bradley because of the mental work not the physical. Believe it or not Bradley is a lap dog. My wife swears that it is because he is grateful we rescued him. It is very common for Bradley, all 55 pounds, to curl up in my wife's lap and go to sleep.

I hope you enjoyed this. Let me know what you think in the comments.

See You At The Bank,
Bob Caine

I have a boxer that reached the age of one, is it still worth trying to train him professionally? I mean he is a good boy and usually listens for most signals, he just doesn't want to give the ball back after I throw it to him, he wants me to go after him and grab it 😁

Bradley is approximately 1 according to the vet. Our trainer says he casn train a dog of any age. Personally, I think there is some upper limit just like with people. I know I am untrainable now-a-days.

Welcome to the @silverbloggers community, Bob
The people here seem very nice.
They also have a discord channel.

I could not get the video to load.
I will try again in a bit.
Thanks for sharing Bradley's journey.
