Working on stronger communication skills in nose work class- I’d say today was a success! I’m a little worker 🐝 and tend to move real fast when I do nose work. My mom is learning to keep up 😂#gsd#gsdofig#gsdofinstagram#germanshepherd
What Do I Actually Do?
I've been getting more and more messages recently about what I actually do here at Obsidian K9.
Do I train dogs in person, run groups, run courses, or train online?
Well the short answer is that I train dogs in person 1-1 and I have a (mostly) online Academy as well.
I've been training dogs 1-1 in person for almost six years now and it's the most rewarding job I can think of. We get all sorts through the door and every day is so different! Dog Aggression, Human Aggression, Lead Walking Issues, Recall, Basic Obedience, Advanced Obedience, Resource Guarding, Fear Issues... Honestly the list is endless and that's one of the main reasons I love it so much.
I stopped doing single 1-1 sessions maybe about a year ago because wait lists were just getting silly, so now they are all half day, or full day only and I'm gonna be keeping it that way for sure.
The other half of Obsidian K9 is the online Academy because I was reaching lots of people that lived in different countries, or ten hours drive from me here in North Yorkshire so I wanted to find a way to help them as well.
The Academy is basically a database of videos (170 at the moment I think) with ongoing support from Professional Trainers and other members via the WhatsApp and Facebook groups. We do live chats, in person training days and a bunch of other stuff.
To date -
Hundreds of dogs trained 1-1 in person
Academy Members in 29 countries around the world!
So for those that were asking - There you have it!
And to those that train with me in person, or in the Academy, from the bottom of my heart, thank you! I love this job so much! #dogtrainer#dog#dogsofinstagram#gsd#germanshepherd#business#dogtraining#businessman#rottweilers#rottweiler#k9#k9unit#protectiondog#StopAtNothing#family#kingk9#children#training#doglove#obedience#dogstagram#RaisingTheBar#ObsidianK9#dogtrainingtips#workingdogs#dogswithjobs#dogsonadventure#outdoorswithdogs#sableshepherd#dutchshepherdsofinstagram
Training again...wir trainieren zwar nie länger als 30-40 Minuten, dafür aber regelmäßig.
Der kleinen macht es immer Spaß, wenn sie sieht dass ich mich freue. Das treibt sie immer schön an...oder ihr Spielzeug...na gut ich denke es ist die Aussicht auf ihr Spielzeug, was sie antreibt 🙈
Dennoch macht sie was sie soll und lernt nach wie vor sehr schnell ❤❤
