Just a Q to start - Luna gets JIGS around other dogs so I know practicing at park is going to be like a 10 for her.
Can we practice around our house without being in it? Ex. Our front yard where there are lots of sights and sounds? Or our garage in the alley with the door open?
We can work towards the park, stores, etc. or start with early mornings since this city wakes up so late. Just want to set her up to succeed ESP at this stage in the game.
Will post videos for HW tomorrow!
Optional: engagement work in new spaces.
sooo this is tricky I feel like bc 1. It’s hot AF rn in Chicago and Luna will Ralph if she is over fed in the eat.
2. she gets easily heightened with other dogs around.
I’m thinking of taking this super slow. Some practice places could be
our garage with the door open to the alley
the little restaurant on the corner which is School St. and Milwaukee. This will have to be an early morning thing bc of how busy it gets.
different parks - again early is key. This city loves to sleep late but we’re up at 5 am daily so might as well take advantage.
this video was taken today around 7 am at Schiller Woods park. No other people or dogs around, just nature and a few cars driving by.
New heeling work video - I’m terrified what she’s going to do when I take the barrier away 🤦🏻♀️ Going to start practicing in new places this weekend before the heat gets too crazy. Also printed all 150 signs this am.
New target video - look at her go! 🥰
Yes, you can definitely do all of that!
You could also do big empty parking lots, friend's yards, etc.
