This handsome man is Louie! Louie’s family made the amazing decision to call Backcountry K-9 Training when they needed more training for their newest family member. Upon his evaluation We discovered that he had been put under a lot of pressure by a previous dog trainer who wanted everything done quickly in order to prove himself. This caused Louie a lot of stress and made training no fun for him. He was introduced to training tools in a negative fashion which did not create the communication and engagement that we want. Louie went through 5 sessions with Backcountry K-9 Training and during his course we worked on the re-introduction of training tools in a positive way. Being the very eager and energetic dog he is, Louie thrived under this new fun way of training and was moving very quickly through our program. Sure to our personalized training plan, dedication from his family and compassion we were able to do some amazing training with Louie.
One major goal for Louie was to be able to have him be a true German Shorthair Pointer and be off-leash when hiking or at the local dog beach. The big problem was that he would not come back when he was called. Through our program we kept working towards that goal. We where thrilled when our last two sessions with Louie he was hiking off leash and then was at the dog beach off-leash. He was allowed to be a dog and run, play but would come back when called or execute other important commands when needed. It was so much fun for us to see Louie Epitomize the Backcountry K-9 Training spirit and be able to enjoy life off-leash. While training with us as well, Louie worked on other behaviors such as jumping, counter-surfing and chewing. Did I mention that Louie’s cousin is CJ the 2016 Best In Show Winner at the Westminster Kennel Club Show.
