Come & Sit. San Diego Dog Training Camp - Rhodesian Ridgeback/Black Lab
What do you do with an 8 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback Black Lab mix?
First have a lot of fun knowing that this dog wants to go everywhere with you. Anything outdoors, trails, chasing a ball, to the beach, hang out at a dog friendly restaurant, visit a friends house, or just chill at home watching TV. This dog wants to truly be man’s best friend.
The only thing is without some dog training in place, an 8 month old, 70 lbs bundle of energy like this can knock everything over in tail radius and start having your friends add the disclaimer “no dogs”, to the invite. Training your dog just two things can change everything and only for the good.
Come and sit. Its really that simple. Well ok, it takes some practice and it takes understanding of how a dog thinks and learns. And here’s a big tip. Its much different than the way humans learn.
Naiyah has come to dog training camp so she could in fact go do all the fun things out there a dog can possibly do. Her owner being an outdoors type of person, who also takes his dog to as many dog friendly places as he can find in San Diego wanted to get on it while she was a puppy because of her size and so he could get out and have as much fun as possible with her.
Though come and sit can get you a long way with your dog, Naiyah already is walking on a leash nicely, not jumping on people, and coming when called off leash. Its going to give her huge freedom and she’s so much fun to hang out with.
If you are working on training your dog at home remember to make it as simple as possible and follow through. Start with sit for every thing. Sit can mean not jumping on people. It can mean stay. It can mean not running out the open door. Repetition and follow through and you are on your way to a super cool dog.
