Young Dog Skills for Life, Obedience & Agility

My puppy, Ru (short for Rouge), turned 1 year old on Jan 5th. Although small and petite, she's still a growing girl and up until now, there wasn't too much I could directly do in Agility (and I'm fine with that). However, there have been training skills we've been working on.

She's been active in:
  • Conformation
  • Socializing with the world
  • Playing and getting to know all kinds of people and different dog breeds
  • Working on her basic obedience & home skills (sit, down, stand, stay, walking on a loose leash, ignoring distractions, going on car rides, hanging out at dog shows, etc.
  • working a 2 on 2 off position on a flat board in our living room
  • working on Agility Flat Work such as a rear cross on the ground, a front cross, following the lead hand, etc.
  • Trick training such as crawling in a suitcase, playing with cardboard boxes, balance boards, etc.
I think any positive interactions you can create with and for your puppy will add to their experiences and make them a more well-adjusted dog as well as a positive family member.
