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

I watch a lot of obedience clips and videos, and it always looks easy. So untrue. Some people are naturals, I am not one of them .  At 40 something I am giving IPO a real go, and am having a blast.  In my head ..’ move your arms , keep your shoulders straight, long strides, and breathe! ‘ Basically, walk like a normal person 😆. I have learned a lot with my nugget and am lucky to have  found good training buddies and mentors along the way.  I encourage anyone to stretch out of their comfort zone #nofear #ipo #ipotraining #malinois #obedience #ipoobedience #dogtraining #2018goals

Someone was feeling pretty blue about her pink panties. A little 2 toy game cheered her right up #girlproblems #hotpants #malinois #mainoislovers

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
