Chapel Hills Mall, Colorado Springs – Sept. 9, 2015

We had class at Chapel Hills Mall again. Jayme, our instructor, had all the puppies do a “cradle” while she talked about what we’d be doing in class. A “cradle” is a command where the puppy, or dog, lies on its back between the handler’s legs. The puppy must remain calm and attentive to the handler while in this position. The raisers then worked on some commands while using a 20 foot lead. Using the long lead teaches the puppy not to break a sit/stay and helps with recalls.
