Lorraine and Zeb Canine Freestylin' after 3 lessons!

It's only the beginning...

Our teacher, Sue, has us begin by using verbal commands and luring with a treat. This is perfect for us since we love the positive approach. Eventually, we'll stop using treats or hand signals, and come to rely on the verbal commands we are BOTH learning, like 'circle', 'rick', 'kick', 'lott', 'wiggle', and 'eight'.

It is really fun to spend this time with my beautiful 11 year old rescued Golden and see him enjoying himself so much. We may get smoother and more adept, but if we don't, so what? I'm in it for the time with him. But I do promise to practice and film again!
