Dog training

Postby vlim » Thu Oct 29, 2009 11:39 am

Hi , my poor dog was abnormally tired after last night intensive training by the dog trainer. He was trained how to walk by our side. He refused to walk too much and react very inactively.. my husband and I were so worried that we did not sleep well last day ,,scared that it will die in the middle of the night... now he is still alive but lay down all the while.. so do any one have such experience before??? :? :(

vlim, you must be very relieved now.

With all the hoo-hahs about dog groomers, and trainers, one can never be too wary.

Mods, could we consider moving this to chit-chat please? In all due respect, this isn't quite the forum for it. Many thanks.

Is he eating and drinking? Does he respond to his favourite toy, etc.

Bring him to the vet if his lethargy persists.

May be a coincidence that he is not feeling well after the training.

Then again, were you guys present for the training? And how was the training done?

the collar is the chain link one? Is he still wearing the collar now? If he is remove it, that collar should be used only for training.

Not sure what breed of dog you have. I used to have a retriever and we used a chain link collar to train him to walk, heel, etc. The training method employs some level of 'choking' thru the yanking of the collar. I know, seem cruel but once the dog understands your verbal command, there is no need to use that collar anymore.

If it is the same method and yours is a small dog, there might be some bruising or discomfort due to the training method. I am just guessing here.

But seriously, if your dog is still lethargic, bring him to the vet.

That's great to hear :D

Maybe he got overwhelmed coz it was his first lesson. You would enjoy your sessions from now on.

I had also had a retriever while I was in Aust, there were like 200 dogs at the obedience training field. The dogs were separated into groups of like 15, according to their advancement into the training. The we were taught how to heel/sit/lie down/stay etc. The dogs would be doing all these in unison, very cute. Then as the owner, we feel so proud of our pet when he could advance to the next level :lol:
