Adventures in Dog Training, Part Two

22 Jan

So, the last post was before training started and Bean’s behavior since adopting him in June. I decided he needed training due to his high energy level, that’s when I signed him up for training at Petsmart ( like a month after adopting him).  Fast forward to our first training session went so wonderfully (add in the most amount of sarcasm). We learned the proper way to not approach a strange dog (seriously who goes towards a dogs collar at first meeting… NO ONE) way to set my dog up for success. Beans is a velcro dog when he is overwhelmed. Oh, he nipped the trainer once. I made the decision to cancel the rest of the classes because it was not the right fit for me dog, nor was the trainer. The trainer labeled my dog as aggressive.

Sorry this was not meant to sound like a diss to Petsmart training. For dogs that need simple obedience training it is a great class. It was not the right training class for my dog, as he has a lot more to work on besides the basics. So I started research on private training, and found one that seemed hopeful. We spoke on the phone and talked about Beans and what was going on with him and whether to do in home training or at her training facility, we decided training at her facility would be best. And we were starting training the week of Thanksgiving. I think this is where I will leave you until the next post.
