Well, we dived into CGC, Weightpull training this morning as a club. None of us are trainers nor are we putting ourselves out as trainiers. We're just a group of dog owners getting together to train and share techniques and ideas.
It went really well believe it or not.
We went throught the CGC testing and did some sled dragging at the end. Dreyfus dragged around two little kids. They loved it!
I was using my clicker AND bonker. I was a little leary about bringing the bonker to a class but the proof is in the pudding. Dreyfus was awesome. The best he's ever been. No pulling, no monkey dog. Did all the CGC stuff perfectly. I was blown away. He was having a lot of fun as well.
One lady who came wanted help with he dog that would lunge and snap at other dogs. She was willing to use the bonker so I tossed it to her and told her how to do it. I used Dreyfus to walk by and set him up. 3 times and he wouldn't do it anymore. It was cool.
I asked the rest of the club if anyone was uncomfortable and they weren't so I will continue to use it.
Anyway, we will be having mini Bullympic competitions at the end of every class starting next week! woohoo!
