“My Week” by Elf

This was Elf’s Puppy Class Homework, but she thought she would share it with her friends.

Tuesday January 30:

6 am: Every morning, we have to sit or down and stay while Mom makes us breakfast. She says it’s so we don’t bark. I don’t have to stay in a certain position yet, but I have to stay on a dog bed the whole time. It’s hard, but I get a lot of cookies and when we’re done I get breakfast, which is one of my favorite meals.

8 am: I went to Gromit and Spice’s agility class to watch. Agility looks like fun, but mom says I have to grow up first. In the meantime I get cookies for being quiet in a crate while the other dogs run. If I bark, my crate gets covered so I don’t bark at the other dogs anymore.

Noon: Mom was working with a client at Bass Pro Shop in Harrisburg. They are dog friendly, so I walked around the store too. I climbed into a boat and onto an ATV and sat in a bear’s lap.

8 pm: I started Star puppy class at the Dog Training Club. The building is really big and noisy- much noisier than the classes that Mom teaches. There are lots of dogs, but I’m there to play with Mom and get cookies. I practiced sit, down, stand, and come and ate lots of cookies. Did I mention that I like cookies?

Wednesday, January 31:

9 am: I went tracking at the Fairgrounds. Tracking is fun- I use my nose to follow a trail of cookies that Mom drops and at the end there’s a glove to play with. Mom was tricky this time though- she didn’t leave me as many cookies on the track so I had to sniff out her footprints instead. After about 70 steps, she must have turned. I almost lost the track but I figured it out and found my glove.

Noon: I practiced putting my back feet on a target for lunch. Mom makes we work for lunch everyday, but that’s ok because the big kids don’t even get lunch.

6 pm: Mom had students tonight so I had my dinner frozen into a slow feed bowl and then got a nice marrow bone to chew on.

Thursday, February 1:

Noon: I went to Home Depot and practiced my sit stay. Mom and I had a nice game of tug when she told me “all done”.

1 pm: I got to watch Silk’s herding lesson. She was playing with some noisy animals called sheep. I think she was bossing them around (Silk is very bossy) because they kept moving around the pen and through gates. I met some nice people and a pig named Scrapple.

2 pm: My lunch was very late today! Good thing I had some cookies to tide me over. We worked on my fold back down for lunch.

4 pm: I had a bath. I don’t see the point of this. I mean, water is fine, but soap? Yuck!

7 pm: I went to the training place again for the end of novice class. I’m too much of a distraction to join class, so we played Recallers Games on the side.

Friday, February 2:

Noon: We did some cookie stretches and Mom started teaching me left and right for lunch. This wasn’t a good time to work on this because I really wanted my food.

7 pm: I went to Clever Puppy class. Mom is teaching, but uses me to demonstrate things and Dad works with me. Don’t tell Silk that Dad gives me some of her cookies.

Saturday, February 3:

All Day: I went to a dog show called Canine Learning Experience. Gromit and Silk got some ribbons in rally, but I think I was the star of the car. I met lots of people, saw lots of dogs, and practiced some of my skills.

Sunday February 4:

We stayed home because Mom says that drunk football fans don’t drive well in the snow. I had a few training sessions throughout the day.

Monday, February 5:

2:30 pm: I went to Scent Work class. I found odor in lots of boxes and some that wasn’t in a box- that was pretty sneaky putting it someplace else. I practiced some other stuff in between classes.

Why Use a Certified Dog Trainer?

Dog training is something that can be done on many different levels.  In fact, if you’ve ever lived with a dog, you have probably done some dog training whether you realize it or not.  However, the concept of dog training as a profession is relatively new and there is a lot of misconception about the difference between a dog training professional and someone who has trained a dog.

One of the major changes in the dog training community in recent years is the use of science based techniques that have transformed modern dog training into an applied science, where theories and methods can be researched and tested for validity.  Traditionally, dog training has been viewed as more of a form of mystical knowledge to be passed on- and if the knowledge that was passed on didn’t help it was common to blame the human or canine student for being somehow flawed.  Dogs are pretty good at figuring out social cues, so there are many training methods that work some times with some dogs even though they probably shouldn’t, but operant conditioning based methods can be applied to any human and dog team without stipulating that the person needs to be “assertive” or “dominant” and that the dog not be “stubborn” or “untrainable”.  In other words- science is real. (Yes, I know that is apparently a controversial statement.)

As animal training is studied and researched more thoroughly, new information is available all of the time.  A key requirement of maintaining professional certification is meeting continuing education requirements to stay updated about animal learning, behavior, and cognition.  A trainer who has worked with dogs for many years may have a lot of hands-on experience, but if they are still using the same methods and techniques they started with decades ago, they are probably missing out on a lot of important data.

Hands-on experience is another thing to consider.  While there is a lot about dog training and learning theory that needs to be comprehended on a cognitive level, to have consistent results in training, there is also a lot about the profession that can only be experienced hand-on.  An amateur trainer may have experience with a few dogs of a few breeds, but a professional should have a much broader knowledge base.  Professional certification requires at least 300 hours of hands on training time, which would be difficult to achieve just by dabbling in dog training for an hour per week.

Because dogs are so forgiving and accepting of human behavior, many training techniques have evolved over time that are very hard on the dog, both physically and emotionally.  A certified professional trainer will have made an ethical commitment to utilizing the Least Invasive, Minimally Aversive technique required to achieve the desired result.  As research is now showing that punishment based training can have long term negative side effects on a dog’s behavior, this seems more important than ever.  Force based training techniques can often present the illusion of a quick fix, but the long term effect of reward based methods is a stronger relationship with a more mentally stable dog.

Elf’s First Few Weeks

Just before Christmas, Elf joined our family.  She was somewhat unplanned, but I had been considering a field bred Golden for quite a while.  I love my hounds and PBGVs will always be my breed, but I also love competitive dogs sports and want the opportunity to be a little more, well, competitive, than the hounds are necessarily up for.  I grew up with Goldens and have worked with sporting dogs throughout my professional career, so a high drive Golden just seemed like the right choice.  When I learned about a litter nearby, I decided to take a look.

When I first met her, Elf was twelve weeks old.  She had been handled a lot and was well on the way to being house trained, but she hadn’t been away from her litter mates.  She quickly showed me that she was brave enough to try everything I asked her to do (like play tug and walk on some new surfaces), and not worried by novelty (like noise and an opening umbrella).  More importantly, she was happy to engage with me and stayed interested the whole time.

The first few days were spent mostly working on housebreaking, which went very easily, integrating into the pack, and learning the household routine.  I also wanted to start leash training and socialization right away, since Elf was already 12 weeks old.  Since coming home on the evening of December 20, Elf has been to Camping World, Petco twice, Godfreys Welcome to Dogdom, my mom’s very crowded Christmas dinner party, Blue Marsh lake, the fairgrounds, 3 agility trials, a barn hunt, Lowe’s twice, and puppy class.  The fact that the weather has been horrifically awful has made this a challenge, but a puppy’s socialization window doesn’t stay open long.  Elf was pretty confident from the beginning, but she’s gotten progressively more comfortable and is able to follow cues and happily work for food and toys in all of these places. Did I mention that Elf works for toys?  This is very exciting and novel for me and 25 years of having to meticulously shape tugging and retrieval that may or may not hold up to distraction in my hounds.

Elf’s training so far has been mostly house manners and the start of Susan Garrett’s Recallers program.  She’s been introduced to both tracking and scent work and has been exposed to some body awareness exercises.  She’s growing fast and her rear end awareness varies from day to day.  She is fitting in well with the other dogs and has good sense about who will play with her and who would like her go away.  I think this will be the start of an exciting journey, but for now I’m taking things slowly and building a strong foundation.

If you would like to follow some of Elf’s early training, I’m posting video regularly on The Clever Hound Facebook page.

 

A Grand New Year?

On January 1, the Grand Basset Griffon Vendeen officially entered the AKC Hound Group.  I’m supposed to say that this is a wonderful thing and I’m so happy for all of the show grands out there, but it’s no secret that I didn’t drink the Kool-aid (or inhale the hairspray fumes) and I have some thoughts on what should be in place before a breed is considered for full recognition.

  1. A method of demonstrating that the breed can still perform the task for which it was originally developed.  There are a small percentage of breeds whose original purpose isn’t viable anymore and there is a non-sporting group for those breeds.  In the case of a breed still used for it’s original purpose in its country of origin, there’s no excuse for breeding just for the look of a breed without considering a dog’s ability to work.
  2. An honest concern for the health issues that impact a breed and science based dialog about those issues.  Testing is only helpful if the results impact breeding decisions, regardless of how pretty a dog may be.  When a disease, like hip dysplasia, is known to have a basis in genetics, pretending that it will go away if everyone feeds a certain brand of dog food and refrains from teaching their dog to sit is not going to result in genetic improvement for the breed.
  3. A community of pet fanciers.  Not every dog will have a long show career, especially in a breed where litters can be huge.  Breeders need to support and encourage interest in a breed from outside the show ring.  Often pet dogs are the first dogs of a breed that people meet and in many breeds it is the pet owning community who does a great deal of public education.  Which brings me to:
  4. Honest public education about breed characteristics and behavior.  A Grand is not a taller Petit.  The temperament difference between the breeds is significant and the breeds are not interchangeable.  Puppy buyers who are expect a sociable, vivacious PBGV should not be talked into a laid back, aloof GBGV. Which brings me to:
  5. A safety net for dogs whose original home doesn’t work out.  Ideally every dog should come from a responsible breeder who will give that dog a home for life if needed.  If this isn’t the case, having a breed rescue in place can literally mean life or death for that dog.
  6. A community of dog sports fanciers and support for those activities from the parent club.  Most dog sports like agility, obedience, scent work, or tracking relate on some level to the original purpose of most breeds.  These sports serve as another way of evaluating a breed’s structural and behavioral soundness.  A dog who cannot physically handle a 45 second agility run probably isn’t going to hold up to a full day of hunting either.
  7. A democratically run parent club with open dialogue, regular meetings, and term limits.

So, I get that my seven requirements are quite different that AKC’s criteria for full acceptance.  I also get that GBGVs are about to become very successful in the show ring if for no other reason than the copious amount of money and power that exists in the breed.  I hope for the sake of GBGVs in the US beyond the next few years that the small pockets of all of the things I list above that exist now will grow and become stronger.

Invitational and a New Addition

The last few weeks have been pretty exciting, including a trip to Florida, a new puppy, a new RV, and the holidays.

Chili, Salsa, Wally, and Juno were all invited to represent their breeds at the AKC Agility Invitational in Florida.  This is my favorite agility event.  The top 5 dogs of each breed are invited to compete, which makes for an exciting weekend and a chance to see really great agility dogs in some very untraditional breeds.  This is the first time I’ve had 4 dogs invited and it was a little bittersweet, since it’s likely to be the last trip to this event with two of my girls.

Chili had qualified for the Invitational from the regular classes, but has been running at her preferred height since July.  I knew it would be a lot to ask for her to jump 12 inches again and to make time on challenging courses, but she held up really well.  She only had one bar down all weekend but I know she’ll be glad to return to 8 inch preferred.  This was my awesome Chili-dog’s ninth time at the Invitational, but at age 13 I realize it was probably her last.

Salsa has a really hard time with big events.  She had some really nice runs and some others where she was clearly worried.  I experimented with a snuffle mat outside the ring to keep her from being as aware of the environment, which did seem to help.  I’m starting to realize that Salsa handles bigger events better when we take theRV, which is like home to her as opposed to staying in hotels.

Juno had qualified for the Invitational based on a single jumpers run in August of 2016 and hasn’t done agility since the Westminster trial in February.  This event was her last agility trial, because her hip dysplasia has made the physical aspects of the sport too hard for her.  We had fun representing GBGVs one last time and got to take home the breed medallion, which the GBGV club sponsored this year.  Juno’s jumping still looks good at preferred height, but even in still photos I can see that she is doing everything from her front end.  Staying in the weave poles at speed was a big struggle all weekend and she had some trouble getting her balance on the dog walk.  Juno had a clear round on the last run of the weekend, which was a nice way to end our Grand agility adventure.

Wally was the dog who surprised me the most on this trip.  It was his first big event and he doesn’t run nearly as reliably as the girls at regular trials.  He is a really different dog than they are though and was totally unphased by the noise and chaos.  Wally had some nice runs and really showed me how much I’ve been going out of my way to accommodate Chili and Salsa’s sensitivities over the past 10+ years.  It was a big relief not to have to worry about whether I got him out at the perfect time, protected him appropriately from the public, maintained the perfect temperature and a zen-like atmosphere in the crating area (complete with calming essential oils and soothing classical music)…….  Wally is just Wally no matter what and that made him a pleasure to run.

She’ll be the focus of my next post, but while we were in Florida I learned about a litter of field trial Golden Retriever puppies in my area.  Goldens were my first breed and I’ve been considering a high drive Golden for a while, so we went to see the litter when we got home.  Elf came home with us that night and has been a lot of fun.

Eukanuba Performance Games

Last weekend we attended the very first AKC Scent Work Competition, which was held in conjunction with the Eukanuba Performance Games at Roberts Centre in Wilmington, Ohio.  This is a fabulous dog show venue, with an attached hotel and restaurant along with brand new RV hookups, which were a pleasant surprise when we checked in.  This facility would be a terrific venue for a national specialty, as many events could easily be held on site.

The Performance Games, which were held for the first time, included Scent Work, Agility, FAST CAT lure coursing, dock diving, disc dog, and barn hunt.  Each activity also had a “try it” option if you wanted to introduce your dog to it to see if the sport seemed like a good fit.  We took advantage of this opportunity to let Spice and Silk try the FAST CAT, which both of them would like to do again sometime soon.

I was excited to learn that Maya had made the draw for the Scent Work trial, but also a but nervous.  We’ve been training scent work for about 3 years now, but because of the extreme difficulty in getting into NACSW trials, had only competed twice.  Maya just turned 11 and while she still makes frequent therapy dog visits, she was been mainly retired from competition for quite a while, so I also worried about her having the endurance for 5 searches daily on 4 consecutive days.  As it turns out, we were fairly well prepared and had a good success rate, qualifying on 15 out of 20 searches and earning titles in exterior, containers, and handler discrimination.  Maya’s experience in other sports and good physical condition allowed her to take the long days and chaotic environment in stride.  In fact she had her only placement of the weekend in the large Novice B class (44 dogs), with a 3.61 second container run on Sunday afternoon.  If anything, she got faster and more confident with each search.

I did find a few areas to work on/ consider.  I had only ever trained buried hides outdoors and with sand.  Mulch was used in the containers, which worked ok, but 2 of the buried searches were held indoors and Maya struggled with those.  She did well on the 2 outdoor buried searches, so I think I need to drag the buried hide containers into the house for a while and hope we don’t make too much mess.  Interiors were also a challenge for her.  We had 2 NQs were she was close to the hide and clearly in odor, but not close enough.  The odor concentration in AKC is very high compared to NACSW and I’ll admit to sometimes not refreshing my odor kit often enough- guess this was a motivation to be more careful about this.  Handler discrimination went really well for us, despite boxes that sealed pretty tightly.  This was exciting, since this was a brand new skill that Maya recently learned.  Exteriors went well for Maya all four days, but there were many peeing incidents in the grassy search areas.  One of the days we ran last on this element and all I could smell in the search area was Nature’s Miracle so I was glad that Maya could sort through that to find the birch.  This made me wonder what it will be like to trial my intact boys.  I don’t think they would pee first, but getting them to not over-mark will be tough.

As I hoped, it seems like AKC Scent Work will bring more trial opportunities.  Maya and I are looking forward to testing her skills in Advanced at Wine Country and Juno is entered in Novice a few weeks later.  Here are links to my head mount Go Pro videos from all of Maya’s searches this weekend:

Day 1

Day 2

Day 3

Day 4

In addition to Scent Work, the hounds had a great time running agility on Saturday and Sunday. It was a lot of fun attending an event with so many opportunities to compete in different events and to see the great dogs of so many different breeds competing.  It was fun t be among the first dogs to title in AKC Scent Work.  With her “new letters”, Maya is now GCH CH TDCH Gebeba Clancy Poetic Justice VCD1 RAE OA MXP AXJ MJP T2BP TKP PCMH SEN SCN SHDN NW1 L1C RHX2 CGCA
