Thatโs a wrap for little Tofu who went home today after a long day hanging out with me during some lessons and finally getting to work with her owner. Mom has a lot of work to do to keep Tofu accountable and letting her know the rules apply to her home too not just mine! She did an awesome job and asked some really great questions, we canโt wait to see how far they go!
I have been sitting on this for a few days now. This little ditty from @jenniesallen popped up one day as I opened my insta for some random browsing. One of my first thoughts was โwell Iโve got the cheesy downโ, but in all seriousness, this was exactly what I needed to hear. So much fear and doubt comes with my new blog adventure, but I am finally acting on my urge to write. It. Is. Terrifying.
Lovely little ditties such as these are beautiful reminders to just keep going. Just keep doing. Just keep listening to the wise guidance of our God. He doesnโt always take us to the most comfortable places, but God takes us to the places He has had planned for us for longer than we can even fathom.
Finnegan will be going home on Sunday ...but his work is not over! We have taught him skills like heel, come, place training, sits/ long downs and stay. But the most important change was his attitude from bratty to a dog who can be inclusive in his familyโs life . His family has been coached on how to create structure, rules and accountability for his continued success . #dogtraining#obedience#balancedtraining#ligirodogtraining

This little #springerspaniel is in for our two week board and train! Some quirks to add to the list for why sheโs with us are ๐
๐pulling on leash
๐lots of jumping, even more with the owners young daughter
๐bolting through doors๐ช ๐some nervousness ๐and Separation Anxiety! -
Weโre jumping right in to training by first introducing her to the prong collar and some simple pressure on pressure off exercises before getting her started on the place command. I have a feeling once we slow that brain down weโre going to see her true colors, my guess is a nervous #puppy who deals with the nerves by overcompensating with super excited energy!
This sermon blew my mind. I was literally in the car thinking about the things I have counted out bc I felt God couldnโt use them. After listening to @iammiketodd and his spirit led sermon my spirit and faith was revived! God is going to use the thing that People and myself have discredited, to bring him glory. Lord your will and not mine. Show me how I can serve you and your people. Iโm willing! #revive#anewthing#godisgood#faith#obedience#grateful#grace#joy
I kept the volume on even with the wind because transparency is everything. โข
I FINALLY understand this new exercise I've been learning. โข
Scout has balancing issues. As in, he HATES coming off balance. So in this exercise I'm teaching him to 1. Come into my pressure 2. Come off balance (You can see he really wants to go between the stock and the fence to balance off me.) And 3. Short flanks. Talk about a lot of pressure on him, that's why he keeps checking in with me, like hardcore stares at me haha and he's slow on his feet. This is really gonna help up with our upcoming trial though. We're starting to make progress though, this is our second time doing this exercise. He's starting to take the actual directions and not just taking whichever direction allows him to balance. โข
