Rocco is a male Bernedoodle and is almost two years old. His owner’s goal for Rocco was for him to become a great family dog with good manners around all members of the family. Some of the challenges that needed to be addressed were to stop bolting out the door, stop counter surfing, stop pulling on the leash, stop jumping on people, and to come when called Training protocols were introduced using “marker” training, the “place command”, leash management strategies, threshold control, and to be calm on command. Rocco is a high energy happy dog and training and consistency by his owners will be needed his whole life. Ten training sessions were completed, and Rocco is well on his way to being the well-mannered family dog his owners were hoping for.
