Oh Bash, you charming devil. #rootsk9 #balancedtraining #placecommand
Khaleesi the bulldog is coming along on her training. Today we worked on recall, sit, and focus work. Still working on being calm in the crate and learning to stop using those puppy chompers on people! #balancedtraining #rootsk9 #puppytraining

Food is a training tool used to teach commands. That’s it. We fade it out quickly because your dog should listen to you without bribery. It’s unworkable for us to carry a treat pouch everywhere. #balancedtraining #rootsk9 #puppytraining

Just posted a new blog post on why more #exercise may not be the best thing for your dog. #balancedtraining #doyourwork #dogtraining #rootsk9 #walkyourdog
Took a break from the usual adult dog riff raff and worked with a fresh 14 week puppy today! It’s so refreshing to capture their engagement and eagerness to learn this young. It makes my heart happy when I see owners taking initiative to train their puppies. It means we can avoid so much heartache and stress years down the line! #balancedtraining #puppylove #mastiffpuppy #rootsk9

Goodbye Slater! We’ll miss you! #balancedtraining #rootsk9 #adventuredog
Is your dog in training but not quite trustworthy off leash yet? Don’t be afraid to use your long line! It is your friend. Having your dog drag it around during training sessions gives the illusion of freedom with a “seatbelt” of control. If your dog were to make a mistake and dart away, you’d have the security of stepping on the leash and preventing a wild goose chase before it starts. #rootsk9 #balancedtraining

Practicing not sniffing items. I don’t actually mind if she sniffs (it’s a pet store) but she’s not allowed to sniff until released from command. If your dog is in a heel or a down, he/she cannot be sniffing! Incompatible behaviors. #balancedtraining #dogtraining #dogsofinstagram #rootsk9 #helperdogs #impulsecontrol
In dog training (and life) it is important to be mindful of intention. Is your dog slowly edging off place to see how far he can get? Or did he fall asleep and forget? When your dog is in a heel, is he tuned in? Or are his ears perked forward, anticipating the next trigger. At ROOTS K9, our goal is a balanced dog, body and mind. Don’t settle for your dog phoning it in - a relaxed state of mind IS possible. #balancedtraining #rootsk9 #changeyourdogchangeyourlife #dogs #dogtraining #minieducator #success
