First video is from Nov 4th. We hadn’t done any heeling in a couple months and it was first time trying to lift the lure for more than a second at a time. He wasn’t clear on correct position and wanted to forge a ton (this video does not do it justice). I’ve spent a lot of time trying to teach correct position both stationary and in motion. Second video is from Dec 6th, so about a month later, and even though the lure is higher and more hidden, his position is much more correct. Really happy with progress and super thankful to @infernocanine for being excellent spotters. 📹 @xtrisasia @bacardibreezegsd #gsdpuppy #gsdofinstagram #gsd #gsdofig #germanshepherd #germanshepherdpuppy #germanshepherdofinstagram #workingdog #workingdogs #workingdogsofig #workingdogsofinstagram #dogtraining #heelwork #obediencetraining #igp #ipo #schutzhund #trisana #trisananutrition

The Šarplaninac shepherd (Molosser) is regarded as one of the oldest breeds of livestock guardian dog in the world. Fierce and fearless when confronting wolves and bears but calm, loyal and gentle with their human family. . . . . . . . . . #LGD #LivestockGuardianDogs #Dogs #WorkingDogs #workingdogsofinstagram #transylvania #wildtransylvania #coexist #coexistence #sarplaninac #workingdogsofig #molosser #molosserdogs #molossorbreed #shepherd #workingdogsofinsta #Guardian #GuardianDog #fearless #fierce #loyal #loyalty #protect #pastoral #dogbreed #mountaindog #beautiful #canine #temperament #instadog

#FlashBackFriday ・・・MAESTRO Raised & Trained by ACS | Working on neutralizing this dog’s reaction to gunfire. Previously his experience with gunfire was to aim at the person(s) doing the shooting. Since he will be working side by side with SWAT, we are changing his association from aiming at, to aiming with the gunshots from his team. Step one is ensuring that he is not being overly stimulated by any gunfire. Since this dog has a deep knowledge of our training system this work will progress very quickly!! There’s some fun heeling and informal obedience mixed in there as well ⚔️🐺⚔️ #advancedcaninesystems #acsdogs #swat #policek9

Our wonderful @erin_dog_behaviorist @threedimensionaldog took this handsome photo yesterday! I'm totally jealous of her photography skills! --- We worked on finding the car, DPT, calm greetings with people Sunny loves, and getting out of the car on his own. --- Sometimes, dogs seem weird. For example, Sunny doesn't like to be held or cuddled by me EXCEPT getting out of the car. He refuses to get out of the SUV by himself! That's the only time I get to carry and snuggle my boy usually. And when he was a baby puppy, I intentionally lifted him in and out of the car to protect his joints. But now that he's 50lbs and still growing, carrying a wriggling fluff ball is getting less safe for both of us. He's also tall enough that it's a small hop to get in and out of my SUV, so I'm not as worried about the impact. --- Fortunately, Erin has us covered! Within five minutes she had Sunny happily hopping in and out of the car like it was nothing at all. She also talked me through why Sunny doesn't cuddle me as much and how to fix it. That made me feel less like I was failing at building our bond, less jealous of Sunny and Ethan, and gave me a path forward to improve things. --- I know DPT (deep pressure therapy) can be a controversial task for some handlers. I discovered the helpfulness of DPT when @e.machek bought me a weighted blanket. The first time Sunny laid on me brought a whole other level to DPT for me. Feeling his warmth, his heartbeat, getting to pet his hair, and even his sharp little poodle elbows really grounded and centered me. I almost cried with relief. So while DPT is not our only task and definitely not one we have down, I do firmly believe it IS a valid task. --- #sd #sdit #servicedog #workingdog #servicedogintraining #workingdogsofig #sdsofig #sunny #mijo #sunbeam  #poodle #spoo #poodlesofinstagram #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #training #traindontcomplain #workthedoginfrontofyou #bonding #partnership #teamwork #teamworkmakesthedreamwork  #buildingrelationships #threedimensionaldog #silverspoo #silver #silverpoodle

Seven months old and just over 80 pounds. I always grew up with indoor/outdoor dogs as pets. Jack is my first experience with an outdoor/working dog. He is one of the sweetest gentlest dogs I've ever had; good with the kids, cats, goats, chickens and wary of strangers. I can't imagine legislation that would call me a criminal for keeping this dog outside. It would be criminal to keep Jack inside. He hates it in the house! . . . . . . . . . . #greatpyrenees #workingdog #aspca #workingdogs #workingdogsofig #lgd #farmlife #goodviewquarter #goodviewquarterhs #goodviewquarterhomestead #gvqhs #gvq #liberty #libertarian #thelibertyhippie #thesouth #northlaurens
