Four-month-old Lambo (his kid loves Lamborghinis) is learning polite leash walking skills and earns treats whenever he keeps himself in heel position. He also gets treats whenever he offers his mom eye contact. This little guy hopes to be a service dog one day and he is already looking like a pro. Well done Lambo!
Teddy (like all young puppies) is learning about the world with his mouth and items like clothing, leashes and quick human movements are exciting, making him want to jump up and nip at them. So he is learning that keeping all 4 paws on the ground and simply looking at the items as they move around earns him lots of yummy treats. Good boy Teddy!
Rescue dog Peanut demonstrates a simple targeting skill called "touch." When he touches his nose to the palm of his human's hand he gets a treat!
Touch is a skill with many uses such as positioning and greeting new people but it also helps build confidence for new dog/handler teams who are just starting out on their training journeys. We do not know much about Peanut's life before he was adopted by his loving family but we do know he loves to learn and "touch" is one of his favorite skills.
