Here's a video from today.

Had a LONG wait, THEN I took my phone out and really made them wait! I wanted to show how the release word "FOOD" has become their sole focus, no encouraging needed like when I first established the routine.

Had one pup break, then stop, and recover. I should have made it go further back, but I had waited so long I figured it was ok. The pup did step back to recover the "sit" so it was a sucess.

Here it is...

I am heading to Auburn in about an hour!

7 pups still available...

Video from today: Switching it up on the puppies causes them to re-focus their LISTENING… they can’t just perform a habitual ritual. Get them out of the routine and make them listen!

Transition from “puppy manners” to “play training”…. Getting them to SEND without them realizing it!
(Still 6 Pups Available)

Will be posting individual pics and videos for the remaining pups this week. Lots of inquiries, several "I'm going to tomorrow..." but I still have 6 left. No holds without deposits!



Wanted to make note than I'll be going to Auburn again midday on the 21st, and my son, David (pens, letter openers, cleavers, etc...) will be continuing on to the North Olympic Peninsula and delivering at least one Pup for me there. So we have the ability to meet closer if you need!


Thanks!

This girl separated herself from the pack when she saw the big dogs fetching in the pool… physically and in standing! After this video, she went back in several times and even did a pretty complete water retrieve!

She has about 3 suitors who claim to be interested, but she and 4 others are still available! (13 weeks.)




All of them have the potential to love water, none of them fear it, and all of them revel in it when I give them a cool bath in this heat... but this one pretty much introduced herself!

The key to introducing a pup to water is to keep it happy and exciting. No forcing, no fear. Once they do it, they're hooked! (If you force and introduce fear, then you've set yourself back from hours to months, depending on the trauma level for theat particular puppy.)

Been spending the afternoons with the big dogs, still in group training, but learning so much in the big yard! Pecking order, stairs, adventuring, playing with toys, sprinklers/wading pool/big pool, etc. (Brown Boy even tore off after a hapless dove who inexplicable landed in the dog yard!)

They’re loving it, after three days of it they’re anxious to go, and pleading to go back!



Little girl (available), Red/Green (reserved), Brown Boy (available), and Leia’s Boy (available) have shown the most confidence in the big pool.



I’m doing an Auburn (from Selah) run Thursday, if anyone on that side wants to go ahead and pull the trigger on one of the 5 that remain. (I’ve already got two going on that ride!)




Then I’m taking a fishing trip to Canada to stand in a friend’s wedding, so the pups will be babysat by some of my kids.

When I get back in August, I’ll start in on individual training. They’ll advance fast, as all the reports I’m getting on these pups are all coming from really, really happy and excited new owners! The conditioning is paying off! They’re listening!
     My only concern about one on one training the remaining pups is them bonding with me - something I’ve been intentionally avoiding. They can forget, and re-bond with a new owner, that’s done all the time with doggie boarding schools, but it’s one more thing that I think isn’t ideal. You taking your own dog from the litter and training it yourself is (imho) by far the best long-term scenario.

The price will negotiate - up - as I transition these babies to one on one training.

Heading from Selah bright and early, thru Spokane late Saturday morning, then up the panhandle….

Back from Vacation... found the river-fly-eating Cutts in Central Alberta... during the last three hours of our time up high!  :bash: (If anyone wants to escape the heat and feed Canadian mosquitoes, I can steer you to the fly fishing!)

Anyway, I've made a series of "Introductory Leash Training" videos, and 5 of them are specific to the pups still available, so I'll post them here.

16 weeks now, price is still 800m/1000f, negotiable/trades, but generally goes up $100 per week that they are trained daily (starting this week.)

They're socializing, and conditioning beautifully, and individual training has started!




Turquois Collar - Smaller Female.

Happy, sweet, loving, and pretty fearless! Loves the water!


Pink Collar - Larger female

Gentle, sweet, calm, smart...will need a gentle hand, but will REALLY thrive if she gets that!


Black Collar - Leia's boy

Great trainability and intensity - Really good attitude!


Blue Collar - Bella's Boy

Very sharp, excellent potential, attentive, he's a good one!


Red Collar - Bella's Boy

Leader of the pack, listens, needs strong leadership, but the sky is the limit if he gets it. Super intelligence!


These babies are available right now, there is no "end date" on their conditioning, it's just lifestyle that YOU pick up from here.

I honestly believe earlier is better, because I think there's tremendous power in the bonding, and the longer I train, the more they'll have to break with me, and bond with you.

But if you can't train yourself for some reason, they will get sharper and sharper, so it's a trade off! After manners and obedience are firmly established, I'll be incorporating retriever field/test training into the mix as a natual advancement/transition.

I'll take deposits to hold, and charge for train/board as mentioned above.
