Smart Bitch Sachi had a jam-packed day! After visiting @petcarecenter_midcity , she honed her obedience skills & sniffed through @jeffersonfeedmidcity !! While out & about, SB Sachi sports her @friendlydogcollars ’ ‘Nervous’ (Please Give Me Space) bandana to gently inform folks to give her a little space. Her bandana, plus awesome smells & yummy treats, makes outings for her oh-so rewarding. . . Shout-out to Dr.Amelie @petcarecenter_midcity for always taking care of our little Smart Bitch. And thank you @jeffersonfeedmidcity @jeffersonfeed for being such an awesome pet store! #petsbehavingwell
I’ve been brushing up on Moxie’s muzzle training as we will have some visitors in a few weeks with a dog. The dog won’t be staying with us but we hope that she can hang out at the house while her family is in town and it’s been a while since Moxie made a new friend so she will likely need to be muzzled for the introductions and any potential play time for everyone’s safety and comfort. Part of this training is reminding Moxie that she can still do most of her favorite things even with the muzzle on! Moxie isn’t aggressive, just nervous with new dogs and can over react to new dogs in her space while getting to know them. The muzzle will set her up for success! ❤️ for muzzle love! . . . #acanineaffinity #muzzleupproject #muzzletraining #dogtraining #dogtrainer #compassionatedogtraining #responsibledogowner #moderndogtraining #forcefreetraining #rewardbasedtraining #trainingthroughplay
This little cutie decided to join Calvin and i on our walk today. Unfortunately he didn't have a collar and name tag so i dropped him off at Belconnen Animal Hospital. Luckily he does have a chip so hopefully he will be home soon. When i popped him in the car he decided my daughter's booster seat was the best place to be 🐾 #paws #pawsinmotionpetservices #forcefreetraining #canberradogs #dogsofcanberra #frenchbulldog #frenchiesofinstagram
During today's #daytraining with Otis we worked on remaining in a sit position in the elevator both while it's only us in the elevator and if we're in the elevator with other people. When he's with people in the elevator, his first response is to jump on them because he's so excited. Today he held his sit position WITH another person in the elevator with us, it definitely wasn't easy for him but he got so many treats during that elevator ride! Good job Otis! 🐾👍 #vizsla #goodboy #gigharbor #tacomadogs #tacoma #seattle #positivereinforcement #sciencebaseddogtraining #forcefreetraining #whileyoureouttraining #moderndaydogtrainingllc #dogtraining
Thumper the Lhasa Apso is our latest Intensive Training Program student! ITPs are kinda like Puppy Day School, except the dogs are older and get more training each day because they have longer attention spans. Thumper’s owners signed him up for the Family Pet Fundamentals program to get his loose leash walking and self-control on track. - If you’d like to see a BIG change in your dog’s manners in a short period of time, our Intensive Training Programs might be right for you! Drop your dog off during the work day Monday through Friday. We'll train them during the day and you continue to enjoy their company in the evening and on weekends. No “boot camp” required. 🐶 • • • • • #dogtrainer #dogtrainersofinstagram #clickertraining #forcefreetraining #karenpryoracademy #trainyourdog #positivereinforcement #providence #gooddog #petsbehavingwell #401dogs #rewardbasedtraining #dogsofprovidence #dogsofri #dogsofrhodeisland #oceanstate #dogsofrhody #crossbonesdog #petsbehavingwell #dogschool #lhasaapso #lhasa #lhasalove #lhasalovers #lhasapuppy #shaggydog #dailyfluff #pupstagram
Happy Tails Tuesday!!! What a great end to Valentine’s Day last week. Here are a couple of our proud graduates (Remi and Hyde are pictured) of our first Dog Training 101 class at the Sycamore Park District. Everybody showed a lot of growth. They both had a great start to the Army Crawl at the last class. #sevssmartypaws #graduationpictures #dogsofinstagram #forcefreetraining #learningtocrawl
Body handling, it's so important! It makes your dogs life as well as yours so much easier if it's not scary or uncomfortable if we touch paws, look in ears, look in the mouth, etc. I don't want my dog to tolerate me fumbling with him, I want him to be comfortable and enjoy it. Quincy (dog in this video) wasn't always easy going with body handling, cutting his nails was a nightmare! We worked together and paired touching his paws with food, then moved onto the clippers = food, then finally cutting his nails with food. When the clippers come out, he comes running and hurries up to lay down so we can get started. It all starts with your dog being comfortable when you touch or handle them and most importantly, it's all at your dogs pace. 🐾 #positivereinforcement #sciencebaseddogtraining #dogtraining #tacomadogs #tacoma #gigharbor #seattle #pitbullsofinstagram #pitbull #practice #moderndaydogtrainingllc #forcefreetraining #dogbehavior #brindlepitbull #ilovemydog
His “go hide” is so adorable.😭. .. Been struggling with anxiety and panic attacks recently. Every time I have one, Archer comes running and nuzzles into me. While he’s not a service or esa dog by any means, it seems to help calm me down..so I’m going to try and teach him and reinforce that behaviour further. My first goal is to reinforce him nuzzling into me (as it’s both comforting and distracting), and then put it on physicial cue. I’m still yet to decide what the physical cue will be..as it has to be something I do before the panic attack gets too severe. .. Would love to hear some ideas!❤️ .. #gsd #germanshepherd #dogtraining #dogsofadelaide #adelaide #forcefreetraining #clickertraining #anxiety #gsdlover #bigdogs #dogscorner
#twofortuesday Petie and Sophie are siblings who, despite being 7, are still leaving surprises in the house. Oh, they bark too - a lot. And, don’t come when called and are leash reactive, as well. We’re working on all of it and definitely have made great strides within a week! 🐶 🐶 🐶 🐶 #havachon #havachonsofinstagram #forcefreetraining #trainwithoutpain #snackleadernotpackleader #fearfree #danapoint #ocdogs #ocdogtraining #ocdogtrainer #broandsis #behaviormodification
#TrainingTuesday with Maera. Here’s a short clip of Maera practicing her public access skills: sitting and ignoring people in a grocery store. #ServiceDogs should remain unobtrusive and relatively unfazed by a variety of environmental stimuli such as shopping carts passing by and people talking to them. Maera has had couple months off, and she did wonderfully her first time back out on duty. She did stand once but quickly refocused and sat again while a gentleman politely asked about her. Anyone that knows Maera, and why I call her the #HappiestKleeKai know just how much we’ve worked on Maera ignoring people, particularly when they talk to her, she’s very sociable and friendly and doesn’t know a stranger. 💖🧜🏻‍♀️ . . . p.s. forgive my poor video editing skills - audio was muted and parts of the video blocked to protect the privacy of the gentleman we spoke with. . . @maera.enchanted ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #snifferdog #glutendetectiondog #glutendetectionservicedogintraining #celiacservicedogintraining #servicedogintraining #servicedogsofinstagram #lunaservicedogsinc #glutendetectiontrainer #allergendetectiontrainer #scentdetectiontrainer #servicedogtrainer #scentdetection #scentwork #clickertraining #forcefreetraining #positivereinforcement #alaskankleekai #kleekai #stellaandchewys #primalpetfoods #wefeedraw #ziwipets #gohealthypaws #thurisia #puppyculturepuppy
So tonight in puppy class we starting to learn a 'touch' or 'target' behaviour - which we will eventually be able to shape to teach our puppies to touch and target their toys by the names. Here is a (throwback) video of Queenie demonstrating that horses can also learn the names of their favourite toys! 🐴 . #westieswaggytails #waggytails #dogtrainer #dogtraining #horsetraining #horse #dogtrainersofinstagram #positivereinforcement #clickertraining #uniproject #braingames #trainingisfun #mentalstimulation #forcefreetraining
Kofta aka meatball (his name translated from Turkish) is all ears and focus 🐰 This little guy has a big personality, is super sharp, and absolutely loves training 😍 _____________________ #dogtraining #positivedogtraining #positivereinforcement #moderndogtraining #sciencebasedtraining #clickertraining #trainelikethis #forcefreetraining #forcefreedogtraining #dogsofinstagram #bostonterrier
Ruby the doodle (and Ruby with her family!). Ruby is very smart and has a lot to say about visitors and noises outside her home. We worked on teaching Ruby how to stay calm when people visit her home. She is doing better tolerating sounds outside her apartment and is more focused and attentive to her people outside. Ruby made so much improvement over the last few months and I am confident she will continue to make progress. #wagthedognyc #nycdogtraining #brooklyndogtraining #doodlesofinstagram #dogbehaviormodification #dogbehavior #helpingdogssucceed #positivedogtraining #forcefreetraining #markertraining #usetreatsnotforce #doodlesofbrooklyn #nycdogtrainer
I haven’t picked up a paint brush in 15 years so not too bad but more practice needed
Just finished a one-to-one consultation with the gorgeous Curri. He's an 11 year old Spaniel x Teckel whose owner needs some help with digging in plant pots, barking at kids, barking and jumping at guests and begging for food. Today we solved the digging issue and started work on the barking and jumping, and begging for food by encouraging Curri to choose to go to his bed rather than practising the unwanted behaviours. We used shaping and rewarded good choices, and within a few minutes this little old gentleman had figured out what he needed to do to earn his treats. By doing this as well as working to lower his overall stress and arousal at home, it's going to help when we start working outside on walks too. Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks? 🐕
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s.... #Robby ! Flying down the hallway at superhuman speed to get his #reward for ignoring the #knock on the door! Robby has been a total superstar with #training , learning #place to #countercondition his response to strangers entering his space. That includes #doorbells and knocks on the door too! He’s a very vocal dude so for him to manage his #impulse to #bark and guard is a huge triumph. This little guy is going places! It would be hard to choose just one #superstar client so far this month, but Robby’s #skill level from where he was when we met to now has grown faster than a speeding bullet so he gets allllll the #goldstars ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (and treats, because without #treats this may not have been possible 😉)

This is Betsy the #cavapoo puppy after her first of three sessions focusing on her recall and lead walking. When she was a puppy we completed her private life skills but as adolescence has started a refresh is in need. We have even thrown in discussing her 20 time a day habit of racing out to the garden barking too for good measure today. #animalbehaviourist #forcefreetraining #fearfreetraining #clickertraining #southeastlondon #believeinmagic 🐾
After a horrendous dog attack towards the girls and female owner, we need to work even harder. I initially started training with the dogs because of Leash Reactivity. We took a stroll in the neighborhood and they seemed more alert, then before. Worked hard on Desensitization and Counterconditioning once again. #dogtraining #dogtrainer #dogs #puppy #puppylove #pawsitive #rewardbasedtraining #evidencebasedtraining #sciencebasedtraining #positivereinforcementtraining #dogtrainers #forcefreetraining #waynesvillemo #missouri #militarywife #ilovedogs #petstagram #dogstagram #animals #instagood #trainer #ilovemyjob #dreamjob #leashreactivity #nochoke #noprong #noshock #nointimidation #desensitization #counterconditioning
Sorry for the horrible quality pictures, but my *not so* little helper this morning was insanely sweet and adorable. . Our training session yesterday did not go how I would have liked for it to. She was very frustrated for most of it, and I think I had subconsciously set expectations for both of us because of how long it had been since we had trained. I also think that she could sense all of the stress that I’m under right now, even though I tried to put all of that aside and only focus on her. . It will be a bit before we can train again because everything is going to be flooded for the next several days, but hopefully our next session will be much more pleasant. . . #sallymae #rescuehorsesofinstagram #animalsofinstagram #horsesofinstagram #quarterhorsesofinstagram #positivereinforcement #positivehorsemanship #forcefreetraining #clickertraining #clickertraininghorses #horsephotography #equinephotography #animalphotography #horseselfie #horsetraining #animaltraining #quarterhorse #hearthorse #horsemanship
“... é como remover o timer de uma bomba relógio”. O rosnado faz parte da comunicação canina assim como qualquer outro sinal de alerta/estresse (orelhas para trás, “olhar de baleia”, bocejar, lamber o focinho, erguer a pata dianteira, etc). Precisamos aprender a identificar esses sinais e respeitá-los. Muitos cães que aprenderam a morder em situações de medo e desconforto, provavelmente foram punidos ao demonstrarem outros sinais ou estes foram totalmente ignorados, e então, o único que passou a funcionar foi a mordida. Uma vez ouvi uma frase que nunca mais esqueci: “agradeça qdo um cão rosnar, ele está sendo gentil em avisar que não está confortável com sua presença.” E é isso mesmo, temos que agradecer por nos comunicarem e não partirem direto com uma mordida. Conhece algum caso onde o cão escalou de sinais sutis de estresse para ataques com mordidas?

It's one of those days, where I wish to spend hours on end with mi amor and to rest up for the rest of the week. Perhaps finish up the bridle I've been playing around with for my own amusement (I don't do leather crafting seriously, just to play around). - - - #libertyhorsemanship #liberty #tricktraining #equine #equestrian #horses_of_instagram #horsesofinstagram #horses #horsemanship #quarterhorse #bitless #photo #photography #Nikon #NikonD3500 #clickertraining #forcefreetraining #equinelove

Happy #tot 👅 I was recently telling a friend that I never used to post about Violet’s reactivity issues. 🤐 People only to want to see happy cute pups right? 🐕 But since I have opened up about it I have found a lot of support here. 💗 I love my dogs as if they were my children. Some days I get frustrated because it feels like for every step forward there are two steps back.🤦🏼‍♀️ Our friends here always cheer us on during the hard days and celebrate our successes on the good days! So we are sending a big hug to all of our friends who follow us on our journey. 🤗 Thank you! 😘😘 🐾 ✨We are proud ambassadors of the Badass Club! ✨The #BadassClub Mission Statement: “Members united in an endeavor to spread love and light throughout Instagram and our communities through our passion for dogs.” @badass_club . . . 🐾🐾 #blueeyedhounddog #badassclub #rescuepup #dogmom #dogmomprobs #bordercollie #bordercollieworld #coonhound #hound #husky #muttsofinstagram #dogsbeingbasic #dogsbeingdogs #doggo #labsofinstagram #gsd #germanshepherd #dogsofcincy #reactivedog #reactivedogsunite #forcefreetraining #dogtraining
“The necessary foundation for world peace and the ultimate goal of any new international order is to eliminate violence at every level. For this reason the practice of non-violence surely suits us all. It simply requires determination, for by its very nature non-violent action(s) require patience...” Dalai Lama ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This photo was taken over four years ago, five years later this year to be exact. It’s probably one of the most pure, innocent and child-like memories I have of Hugo and I (of course we have many memories and are making more, but this stands out), me being thirteen and just climbing on board of this beautiful creature, innately trusting that he would do me no harm just as I would do him no harm... the pure joy that looking at this photo gives me is indescribable, feeling free, at peace, mentally calm. I will forever treasure such simplicity. 💖🌿
We had such an amazing time this weekend at the Paws N' Effect WCRL Rally Obedience Winter Trial! ❄💙❄💙❄ Spending two and a half days with Jeffrey and all of our rally family was a much-needed recharge for my heart. Jeffrey had so much fun and he did very well. He earned his Level 1 championship, Level 2 Title, and Veteran's Level Championship! The highlight of our entire weekend was being awarded the "Heart and Soul of Rally" award by judge Charlene Swainamer! I was shocked and humbled to be recognized for the bond that Jeffrey and I share, in and out of the ring. This award means more to me than any perfect score or championship ribbon ever could. We are so blessed to be part of a big, loving and supportive rally obedience family. We love each other's dogs as if they are our own. We encourage and support each other through the times that things don't go as planned , as well as celebrating achievements. To say my heart is full would be an understatement... without these friends, this sport, and of course, without my beloved soul friend, Jeffrey, I don't know where I would be. We love you all ❤❤❤ Jeffrey, you are my everything! I love you beyond measure ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ #JeffreyThePositivelyPeacefulPitbull #wcrlrallycompetitor #wcrl #rallyobediencetrial #rallydog #pawsneffect #pawsneffectrally #hippo bounce #morethanjustaprettyface #pinupsforpitbullsinc #projectbluecollarambassador #pitbullsofinstagram #forcefreetraining #positivepitbulladvocacy #advocatebyexample

One of the things I love about being with the horses at liberty: they are usually curious about what we are doing. Laying down in the snow is almost always certain to attract their attention, so that at least one of them wants to engage in play. Today Carter decided he wanted to come inside and spend some quality time being the centre of attention. 💙

Featured here is the field Zoom bolted with me in the first few months of having him. I'd decided to try bitless on a trail ride as he had been doing well, and he bolted. I had to do an emergency dismount and was drug as my hand was wrapped around the reins. Yesterday I dropped the reins and recorded him instead as he calmly walked by that same field. I do feel bad, as I can tell he wants to stretch his legs and go explore, but sadly we don't have the area for that.. Maybe one day. - - - #libertyhorsemanship #liberty #tricktraining #equine #equestrian #horses_of_instagram #horsesofinstagram #horses #horsemanship #quarterhorse #bitless #photo #photography #Nikon #NikonD3500 #clickertraining #forcefreetraining #equinelove
