Training Heidi – Day 1

First training session today! We spent about 2 hours talking with the trainer about the methods we’ll be using, the homework we’ll be doing, and the reasons we’re doing it. The theme for this week seems to be getting Heidi to learn how to relax herself, without our aid.

Heidi growled at the trainer at first, but by the end of the session she was lying down and chill. I can’t tell if it was due to the 80ºF weather or that she truly felt relaxed around a stranger. It helped that the trainer was constantly throwing treats.
