Meet Channing! Channing’s dedicated parents decided to call Backcountry K-9 Training after they were having problems with their new puppy. Channing turned out to be full of energy and needed help overcoming her puppy fears such as stairs. Channing and her parents worked very hard to teach her not only her name but most of her basic commands that are needed to be a successful puppy growing up in the world. Channing was a rare dog with a lot of drive to be working or doing something with people, she is your adorable golden retriever but with the drive of a working dog. She is so much fun to work with and always impresses me with her knowledge and ability to work. During Channing’s puppy course we also worked on her crate training and making sure they she was not having accidents in her crate. Channing also needed work on socialization so we would walk her around the neighborhood and expose her to as many different things that we could. We also even worked with her and the vacuum cleaner and grooming. She is a very curious little one but can be startled by new things easily. The good news is that she overcame her fears easily with guidance and good treats. Channing is hoping to become a therapy or service dog down the road as well. Channing is a great example of the benefits of our puppy program. We try to set every puppy up for positive experiences, socialization, and help owners through those dreaded puppy months.
