Evolution of a Training Lesson between a girl and her dog.
This video shows a single training session between my youngest daughter, nearly 9, and our 4 1/2 year old springer, Bean. While Bean is very responsive to adults he likes (or who offer food) and older kids, he’s a bit stickier with a younger version of a person. Bean is by nature a very thoughty dog. This video takes place over a 10 minute period interspersed with a lot of laughter. Training should be fun. I asked Sophie if she’d work with him in being more responsive and we’d do another version next month. She agreed. Stay tuned for part 2 of “give me a hug.”
