Team Training Photos, Day One
Jarod and I settle in before team training begins, May 2, 2011.
Here's the group of dogs we're working with, sitting near their trainers.
The first dog Jarod worked with today was named Flash. He's a large male yellow lab, and Jarod hugged him right away.
We enjoyed a tour early on in our day and Jarod met a number of dogs, letting them sniff and give him kisses!
So, this seems odd....but, before they let you try commands on a dog, they have you practice on one of the trainers first! This is the "dog" Michael. He just followed Jarod's "sit" command, and Jarod is giving him praise. Notice the two leashes--one for Jarod, one for mom. Jarod's is for leading the dog, mom's can make corrections on the dog if the dog chooses not to listen to commands.
