Noah’s Helper work progressing

Noah went out to Indian Creek Schutzhund Club to learn a little more about helper work. As you’ll see a little later, my knowledge of ‘good’ helper work is limited, as is my skill. Steve Romard, Bill Kulla, and Terence Williams helped him improve his skill-set and were very encouraging and honest with him which he greatly appreciated. Tim Barth hooked Noah up with a dog to work: Floh vom Rabenturm SchH3 (2011 North Central Regional Champion) as well as a pair of Gappay Scratch pants both of which Noah was very excited for (he’s been wanting scratch pants for awhile). Giant thanks to Tim for the hook up! Noah also worked Isaac vom Geistwasser AKA Marmaduke, which is never as easy as working a trained graceful dog (but Noah insists he work the beast).

As I stated earlier I’m not a helper and have only done helper work once in my life (at a Helper Seminar and NO I didn’t get certified, ALL dogs are probably thankful for that!)

Aug 20 – 22 ICSC BH (got Isaac’s score book) After 2 trips to ICSC Isaac is at least barking & half-assed going after the prey – seems more interested in the man. Jen suggested corrections- seems to shut him down & flatten him a little (he’s used to e-collar not the pinch). This was older...

It’s been quite some time since I’v posted anything relevant on the BLOG – at one point I had given up all hope that Isaac would ever do protection work. Well the protection work is looking a little more promising these days. Keep in mind he’s not hard hitting the sleeve with a solid hold and bark,...

Haven’t been doing too much tracking with Isaac, and absolutely no bite work. Have been working him in OB and have fuss coming along and a decent long down, might actually be able to get a BH on him. Haven’t placed any ‘pressure’ on him, no corrections, all just positive. Except for the long down...

Did a little OB training with Isaac last night and it went well. Clicker and a ball….no leash (forgot it). Had him fuss in straight lines, sitting in basic position and we did some rotating in a circle. Had good attention and he was where he needed to be. Was nice to have some success! Protection has been for shit...

Will be doing no playing or OB work with Isaac until further notice. Will be saving it up for protection to see if Marmaduke will get involved. I will be tracking and today was the first track of the season and it went well, it was nice to have some success. He sure does like to use that nose of his (oh and he likes food). Hoping...

Did some shitty work in the afternoon. Was up to my ankles in squishy wet ground, he wasn’t driven at all for the food, I wasn’t terribly happy so I quit  after two minutes and just did a little play. Neither of us were in the game (mostly me). Put him in the crate after some play and will try again later maybe,...

Isaac had a stick (Magic stick) 15 of 30 Did some clicker platz & he started to offer the FUSS while there was some down time and I was walking around, so I clicked and rewarded. Did some pivots & short straight lines. (used the new clicker) Got some very good play out of him with the stick, really into it. I banged...

Trip to ICSC OB with hot dogs (Jen said god full attention, Bill says I don’t have his attention 100% and some other comments Documented offline) Wouldn’t play at all, even Jen seemed to have a hard time getting him going. Prey drive still & issue. Kept his attention through pivot (feeding in the middle)...

13th of 30 here is what someone who knows something said in response to the video of his OB Watched this, it looks really nice…one thing to think about, when you’re pivoting, sometimes click and reward when you have focus during the pivot. If you always wait to reward once you’ve stopped & he’s made the...
