Starting 1:1 training this week...

My Yoschi is right at five months old.... we're starting 1:1 schutzhund training on Wednesday.

*I'll be keeping a journal,, for sure.

*The trainer said we'll be working on "imprinting"

*We'll do 30 minutes of specific behavior training and 30 minutes of play traing as well as planning for my at home training for the week.

What questions should I be asking?
What should I be looking for in my trainer and in my dog?
Are there any red flags I should look for in my trainer and/or in my dog?

FYI, I am a complete novice to formal training

My baby boy: Yoschi vom Herzbach, winner of my heart
Sire: V1-Gildo vom Herzbach SchH3, IPO3, FH, KKL1"a"
Dam: V-Fenja vom Herzbach SchH3, FH, KKL1"a"

Just go and have fun.
You should be handling your dog, not the trainer. If the trainer wants to show you things, hopefully s/he'll have a demo dog and not use Yoschi. I think your trainer will be working on you as much as Yoschi, footwork, positioning and line handling is important.

Always end every session on a positive note, and crate him after your session.

I'd get the book from Sheila Booth Welcome to Dogwise.com it has a great foundation for puppy chapter, and helps to understand different training exercises.

Not familiar with him. I know a few of the SchH people down there, but he isn't one of them. I was mostly curious.

First day of training went well... I think I like this guy... we covered some basics. He described his style of training. He teaches in a way that makes sense to me... its a balance of reward and correction. You reward to teach engagement and for repetitive learning .... once the dog learns then you use corrections. Having worked at a juvenile behavioral treatment facility for years,, a balance of strong rewards and fair, timely punishment has been what we always use,, so it makes sense to me.
