We get a lot of calls inquiring about puppy classes. We don’t teach classes but what we do is teach puppies and owners  how to respond in real life settings. Dogs/puppies don’t have to  always interact to be socialized. They need to be exposed to new things with a calm state of mind which is not always easy for a pup . Iika is a 16 week GSD who was starting to show reactivity behavior toward dogs and is very pushy with her puppy playmates in the neighborhood .  We have paired her with 3 different calm adults in 2 different environments to work her emotional state. Next week she will interact off leash with a calm adult in a safe environment. More to come with this kiddo ! #gsd #gsdofinstagram #gsdpuppy #puppiesofinstagram #dogtraining #clickertraining #ligirodogtraining #mainedogs #portlandme

The bully club in agility class. These 3 are amazingly athletic, have awesome drive and incredible handler control. We also have 2 labs, a terrier and a BC pup! Wicked fun! #pitbull #bulldog #bullybreed #agility #agility dogs #dog #dogsofmaine #ligirodogtraining

Pippi the lab pup did her first field trip to work her recall . I did some conditioning to the whistle prior and paired her with Lumi who makes recall a competitive sport!  You can see Pippi trying to keep up. Pairing a young dog with a dog who has a good recall can certainly help, it can go the other way too, so it’s good to know who your dogs friends are before taking that leash off! #dogtraining #obediencetraining #recalltraining #labradorretriever #labsofinstagram #ligirodogtraining #mainedogs

Handsome Marshall is in the beginning of his recall training . A lot of repetitive work showing the same picture . Besides the verbal cue, we also added a whistle cue. Stay tuned for more good stuff from this guy! #goldenretriever #goldenretreiverpuppy #goldenretrieversofinstagram #dogtraining #obediencetraining #recall-training #dogsofmaine #ligirodogtraining
A before and after of Gus in his first leash lesson in the in-home  foundation program. He is a super happy and smart fellow, but his leash manners needed to be addressed ASAP! The secret is to use a tool that gives the dog the most information so he no longer practices nonsense and spend the time to teach him a better way to be.  #dogtraining #obediencetraining #balancedtraining #mainedogs #labradorretriever #labsofinstagram #ligirodogtraining

Finnegan will be doing a board and train this spring, so we are doing a couple of meet and greets before the drop off. I think Lumi gives him 2 paws up (I do too!) #airedaleterrier #airedale #airedaleterriersofinstagram #malinois #belgianmalinois #mainedogs #ligirodogtraining
Baby Iika is 14 weeks old and today was her first session. She is a bit of a social butterfly, so we worked on attention to her handler with strangers walking by.  I love using a clicker for this work as it’s a super clear sound that rises above all the chatter and street noises.  Working puppies in this way is all a part of socializing. Socializing doesn’t mean a puppy has to be touched by strangers..just that the puppy be able to calmly observe them and other distractions in world around them.  We finished with some baby recall work.  More to come with this cutie! #gsd #gsdpuppy #gsdofinstagram #germanshepherdpuppy #germanshepherd #dogtraining #puppytraining #mainedogs #ligirodogtraining

A little check in with my favorite lab puppy  Pip who is learning the happiest of all recalls with her mini educator remote trainer . Next week we add the whistle to the recall  and work her on the trail.

I have been calling ‘the boot’ my office  for the past couple of weeks, meeting clients and training dogs around the famous LL Bean store. Real life training is the best way to work real life obedience . And yes..we train outside all year long! #llbean #maine #mainedogs #dogtraining #obediencetraining #balanceddogtraining #ligirodogtraining
Finnegan the Airedale is as charming as he is handsome. I can’t wait to work with this guy ! #airedaleterrier #airedale #dogtraining #balanceddogtraining #dogsofmaine #ligirodogtraining
We said a happy farewell to Melo .Over the weeks we worked together he went from being  super anxious to much more relaxed and free. There is more work to do, but his people know what he needs and how to move forward.  Good luck buddy ❤️ #dogtraining #balanceddogtraining #dogs #dogsofinstagram #malinois #ligirodogtraining #mainedogs#shelterdog @smithtothehall

Sequoia didn’t want to jump into his crate in the car, which was an issue for his owner who couldn’t lift him (nor should he have to) . A vet check found no physical problems. He just didn’t wanna. So we turned this whole crate thing into a game. We started with crate games with the crate next to the van. Then made jumping in and out of the van a game..like the silliest, most high value game. Then we alternated between the crate and the van. Then the crate was placed in the van..and voila! Crate games include going in and coming out , position changes and stays!  Toward the end of the lesson we were racing to the crate. He won. Every.Single. Time. 😉 #labsofinstagram #labradorretriever #dogtraining #crategames #balanceddogtraining #clickertraining #hisidea #ligirodogtraining

Melo the mal has struggled with Leash reactivity. We are on lesson 4 and here is is walking calmly next to a dog he has never met he then plays with the same dog ! This lesson was a long one, and included recall Work, relaxation techniques, structured walking, and his e collar conditioning . He is still a work in progress but I am so super proud of this dog and his team! ❤️. #malinois #dogtraining #obedience #gooddog #mainedogs #dogsofmaine #ligirodogtraining #team #balancedtraining

The power of place and marker training. These two were a canine tsunami when guests came into the house.  This picture was taken upon my arrival. Today we started desensitizing them to the doorbell with great success. #malinois #doodle #dogtraining #balancedtraining #obedience #dogsofmaine #mainedogs #ligirodogtraining
I ran into an old friend today. I did the temperament test on Bee about 5 years ago. She attended a few classes and we have been buddies ever since. We had fun catching up 😉 #shelterdogs #mainedogs #oldfriends #dogtraining #ligirodogtraining
Sweet Amila is a bit of a wild child .  At 10 months old , she jumps, is mouthy, pulls on a leash,and can be a bit too much in the house. Today was her first session where we started her place training and teaching her to not bolt out of her crate. I look forward to working with this team! #mainedogs #shelterdog #dogtraining #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuedog #ligirodogtraining
Pippi the lab is 6 months old and starting her formal recall training. This is her first conditioning session with the  Mini  Educator remote training collar. We teach all the skills using positive reinforcement  and marker training and, when we have created a good habit, layer low stim of the remote training collar. This tool is one of many that we use but it’s an important step to give the  dog off leash freedom. She looks pretty darn happy with herself! #dogtraining #obedience #balanceddogtraining #recall #labradorretriever #labsofinstagram #labrador #minieducator #ligirodogtraining

Recalls with baby Kenai! I love his enthusiasm and goofiness! If you have a puppy, the best training advice I can give is to start this training early! Successful reps build successful habits!  Keep your puppy on a long line or use a flexi leash for your recall training. If your puppy is getting reinforced by the environment (other people and dogs)and is not coming to you, he is building bad habits and you will (more than likely) struggle with your recalls later on. #recall #recalltraining #obedience #dogtraining #dogs #dogsofinstagram #workingdogs #workingdogsofig #workingdog #gsd #gsdofinstagram #gsdpuppy #ligirodogtraining

This is Melo’s first session of being conditioned to a low stim of his mini educator remote training collar. He has been working this skill with leash pressure and treats so the transition to the collar has been an easy one. Melo lives in farm country and is surrounded by horses, goats and other farm animals so a recall is essential.  More of this fine fellow to come! #dogtraining #obedience #lifeskills #balanceddogtraining #recall #malinois #minieducator #mainedogs #ligirodogtraining

Working ‘ place’ using a variety of targets . I like elevated beds, but they aren’t practical for every room of my small house. I like  the dog to generalize this behavior so they go to whatever I point to until released. The stay is always implied, and not taught as a separate cue. #dogtraining #obedience #stayingsane #calm #chilled #dogs #dogsofinstagram #malinois #corgi #workingdogsofinstagram #ligirodogtraining

Summit the poodle weighs about 5 lbs but has a mountain size personality. He lives in Brooklyn NY, and decided to pop in over the holiday for an obedience tune up.  He has awesome  toy/food drive and springs on his legs. Despite what you may know, little dogs can and should have some obedience training. Hope to see this little guy again. He did super!  #poodle #poodlesofinstagram #dogtraining #obediencetraining #dogs #littledogs #citydog #ligirodogtraining

Cleo the 6 month old mal pup working the foundation for ‘place’ .  I start with a mat on the floor and then move it to an elevated bed and fade out the mat. Every trainer may teach this a little different  so there is no ‘right’ way. For me, I like the dog to transfer ‘place’  from one object to another (another bed or just the mat itself if I am traveling). IMO , this skill is a must for every dog as it helps create  a relaxed response and teach impulse control.  Cleo has come a long way in a week and will be moving to her elevated bed next week! #malinois #malinoispuppy #petdogtraining #dogtraining #lifeskills #ligirodogtraining

Pippi is now about 5.5 months old. How nice it is to walk into a house, to be greeted calmly, no jumping or craziness. We have started her on her formal recall training and it ended with her settling, on her own.

3 weeks ago, Zoey started her journey to a phenomenal recall . Her owner is comfortable with her tool (the mini educator) and is doing the work. Zoey is coming along really well..next is to add in more distractions as well as the whistle cue.  I absolutely love working with this team!  #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram #minieducator #recall #recalltraining #dogtraining #ligirodogtraining @zoey_the_irrepressible_pibble

Little Pippi the lab pup is growing up! At almost 6 months old she is now learning some important grown up skills, like the structured walk. This walk is not a leisurely stroll..it’s an exercise in leadership and teamwork. Occasional soft praise and moving together  is the reward. Calm, quiet & together is good for the soul  #dogtraining #dogtrainer #labradorretriever #ligirodogtraining

Melo gives some great expressions. He sees no reason why I need to be in his house..except that he loves my Bil Jac treats ..and my dog..and the nice bed I brought for him. 😆 #malinois #dogtraining #dogtrainer #lifeskills #ligirodogtraining
Lumi worked for her kibble today with helping Melo...mellow!  Melo is a bit fearful and can be reactive on leash toward dogs and people. After seeing his response to Lumi on leash (which was curious and soft) We decided to let them romp..so glad we did! Melo was completely appropriate and they had a wonderful time! #malinois #belgianmalinois #rescuedog #dogtraining #dogplay #ligirodogtraining #arlgp

Winter recall session with one of my favorite teams. Zoey has a pretty good recall..so to make it an awesome recall we are layering in a low level stimulation of a mini educator e collar, using a long line to ensure she moves in the right direction, and rewarding with treats when she arrives to her person. This process isn’t scary and Zoey’s first session went really well. If you are considering an e collar,  talk to and work with a trainer who understands how to use them. Stay tuned for more Zoey vids as she progresses to awesome! #dogtraining #obediencetraining #balanced #minieducator #recalltraining #pitbill #pitbullsofinstagram #ligirodogtraining

Adorable little Kodah. 2 weeks ago he was running around barking when I came in the house. The second visit he was 90% quieter and chilled in his bed while I walked around  taking a ridiculous amount of pictures of him. He is the first Alaskan Klee Kai  I have ever worked with, and the breed description wasn’t lying when it said ‘intelligent ‘ #dogsofinstagram #dogsofmaine #mainedogs #dogtraining #dogtrainer #obedience #ligirodogtraining #alaskankleekai #alaskankleekaiofinstagram

Training two dogs at the same time can be a challenge,  but this owner embraced it! Kenai is 15 weeks old,  while Kodah  is 6 and dealing with some insecurities when people come to the house. Here they are working on ‘place’ which they have been working separately  until today.  #dogtraining #obediencetraining #dogsofmaine #mainedogs #ligirodogtraining

First night working ‘place’ with a stay in class. The students start close to the dog adding motion, while giving a high rate of reinforcement. We will slowly up the challenges to proof this behavior.  It’s great to see this in a class, but where it matters is at home! You gotta do the work to get results!

Little Lulu was adopted just 2 weeks ago . At 9 years old this little dog is pretty confident , food driven, sweet and a little pushy. She gets very loud when her owner leaves which doesn’t bode well with the neighbors. We talked a lot about creating structured lifestyle which included place/crate training, walks and exercise  and we worked with a citronella bark collar to cut out the barking. Her owner will continue doing set ups of leaving her (with the bark collar on) for short periods of time to desensitize her to ‘leaving’ cues. Since this behavior has been caught pretty early and Lu was super receptive to today’s session, I see this as a very good sign! #keepdogsathome #chihuahuasofinstagram #shelterdog #dogtraining #dogtrainer #ligirodogtraining

Lovely little Zoey. She is a lot of dog in a small package and walking her was a nightmare. No harness was holding this drivey muscle machine. With a switch to an effective tool, her people can walk and reward her for proper position. Training will be a breeze with this one.  #dogtraining #obediencetraining #ligirodogtraining #labsofinstagram #labradorretriever #mainedogs
