Happy Birthday Lyra!

Posted by dfenzi in Lyra

It's Lyra's birthday!

In honor of Lyra, this is not a training blog; it is simply a training session to show where were at in terms of skills, play and drive when she trains at home.

There are five videos here; they start as I take her out of the yard to begin our session and they end when we're done.  You'll get an idea of how I introduce small bits of formality and work with a whole lot of play.

If you watch carefully, you can see that she has many skills but no completed exercises.

video 2 - removed because it is too blurry

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAld7s2l328 (video 4 - fronts, finishes, heeling and retrieve)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjRQ5bihOjw (video 5 - retrieve, high jump, heeling and glove)

In the next month or so, I'll try to get another video to show where she is at "in public" - different story but continually improving.


Excellent video clips! Thanks for sharing! It is really fun to see her in action :-) She looks awesome!!! And now I have a few new ideas….yay!

She’s really growing into herself, Denise! She doesnt look like a baby dog with skills like that. Absolutely love her sweet attitude. Great fronts. Have blogged about how you shaped this?

Delightful! I smiled through them all, but laughed out loud at the beginning—the girl knew which toy to go for!

so how do eventually stop the jumping up on you when she returns from a retrieve?
