Jax is a 9-month old Aussie Shepherd – Border Collie Mix in Sit Up N Listen 2-week Board and Train Program. In this video, is Jax’s evaluation walk. Note, Jax is creating tension on the leash 100% of the time and is not aware I exist at the other end of the leash. The walk is all about Jax as he follows his nose. This is normal behavior in untrained dogs.
The most important step in the training process is bonding with new dogs. Part of the bonding process is Jax is on a six foot leash even when we play. This helps create awareness of humans and that we can have fun together. Through the next few days Jax will graduate from a six foot leash to a 10 foot leash then off leash.
Currently, Jax is learning the language of his SportDog 825. By the end of the 2-weeks he will be happily off leash and truly free to run safely.
Thank you for watching.
