Puppy in Training

Kastle is the first puppy that I've bought for Schutzhund. Rinus picked me out EXACTLY what I was looking for. I am ridiculously proud of this puppy and have high hopes for him.

Any thoughts/opinions/outlooks on his training or general observations welcome

Basement obedience...


Learning how to focus in highly distracting atmospheres...


Latest round of "protection"

Normally I watch pups being worked in protection and think...why are they doing that? But I don't blame you for wanting to work that one. lol. NICE puppy.

Nice focus! I love using the indoor classes to work on focus. This week the instructor got out a giant teddy bear and a quacking duck push toy. She said that Grizzly was "No fun." Because she couldn't distract him with them. LOL!

That's a very good puppy. He is super coordinated and agile for his age and build.

Some of that looks more like ring than IPO. : ) Think OB along the lines of building drive and focus on you. TAKE YOUR TIME and build a strong foundation then the rest will come. One of the biggest things I see is that we can't wait for puppy to grow up and have perfect heeling and send outs and whatever else and the very basics get ignored. Your puppy looks like a lot of fun! Also I would remember to have him coming into you when you treat, rather than sticking your arm out to him.

Thanks everyone so much for the comments!

I am having so, so much fun with this puppy!

Today he had his first "real" track - a straight line vs a scent pad. He's so smart and driven. I'm so excited to have a solid, stable and FRIENDLY puppy that I'm giddy...

Jason says this week he is going to whack Kastle with the hoola-hoop LOL

I think Falon has one of the best in the MI area to work with...foundation should be no problem!
Hopefully Kastle will stay a cute baby for awhile so she can enjoy this stage of his life...it goes by way too fast!
