We have been affectionately calling the 4 week training program Kinley is going to “College.” Silly humans, I know!
I asked so many of you for your thoughts on training programs and was so happy with all of the responses. After a lot of thought, I am going to move forward with the program. I have been training with Kinley since the age of 4 months old. I did a lot right but many things wrong. My biggest hope is that she will develop more confidence. That is the area where I have fallen short. She is so trusting but often get excited or anxious I think because of some insecurities.
Most, if not all of you thought it best that I train with Kinley. I agree but also see the benefit of her working with others. After all I am a first time dog owner and not a dog trainer with 10+ years of experience. I coach youth lacrosse and I cannot tell you how beneficial is it for the athletes to have many coaches. It makes them well rounded and we all coach in different ways.
I know that she will love the program because she is a working breed and a big fan of treats! I get to swing by daily to watch her train so that I don’t go through withdrawal. Wish us luck!
