It was another great week at Devon Dogs! We had a lot of opportunity to ditch the routine! Any opportunity to ditch the routine really helps our dogs out with staying flexible and staying calm. Ditching the routine can be something as simple as moving your dog’s crate or a bigger change such as walking in the evening instead of morning or even ditching the walk all together!
For our classes this week, we ditched the routine and did some turn taking instead of having all dogs out for the entire class in Genius Dog and boundary challenges for Life Skills. Our agility students are always flexible and ditch the routine each week! Friday we did some road tripping for a photo shoot with absoluteDogs. A super opportunity to put all the training we work on into practice with grooming (looking good for the camera), confidence work (coping with a small room, lights, camera and action), novelty (flashing light bulbs) and overall skills: sits, downs, middle, leg weaves, 2 feet on, back foot targeting, nose touch, toy play, retrieve…so many skills put into practice! How have you ditch the routine this week?
Watch out for our 2020 calendar….it is coming very soon and one of the super workshops we have planned is all about Growing Your Demo Dog (January 9th to 11th, 2020), you are the first to hear about this…all the tips and games we use for our own dogs to get those great photos or to use them for showing games during workshops!
