Dog Assistant Trainer - My Fabulous K9 Assistant!

Dog Assistant Trainer - My Fabulous K9 Assistant!

To All My Fabulous Dog Assistant Trainers past and present!


Benji in Flying Disc Back Vault, Disc Dogging

My very first K9 assistant was OTCH res Diamondisle Loch-N-Legasi CD, PS1, PJ1, Benji

Benji was the pioneer as a canine assistant trainer in our classes. He greeted all Canines Friends and Owners alike. But I'm sure he loved the owners most. Because of the generous rewards, affections given to him.

Benji was awesome in Class, he would sit through the entire 1 - 1.5 hours of dog training per class. His present allows other dogs to calm down and quickly gets into the class proper. Benji was very often a Demo dog to show the class how a particular exercise is being done and rewarded appropriately.

Millie, Dog Obedience

Our Second Dog assistant is OTCH Diamondisle Millenium Millie, JD

Millie provides the actual lessons you can learn on how to manage a hyper dog. Even at 11 years old, she herd, frisbee catching, jumping on your back and leg stalled.

However, in class, she is involved rounding up her class and herd them back in class proper.

Millie is a superb demo dog in training. She roams around but stays within the class. This girl exhibits Good Canine Quality and see how a well trained dog can perform and stay relevant in real life situation like Park Setting.

Guinness in Dog Training Class

Our Third Dog Assistant is Diamondisle Angle Wing of Begonia, Guinness

Guinness is driven, hard-headed dog, when she locked on to you good luck, she will spend all her energy to mesmerizing you into submission.

Benefits of having a Canine Assistant in Dog Training Class

The actual benefits are enormous. Here are some benefits if your OB Class has a K9 assistant in participation.

1. Act as a distraction,

2. Allow other dogs to settle down easily,

3. Allow proper socialization in class,

4. Act as a Demo dog,

5. Allow visualizing how a well-trained dog behaves,

6. Teaching the client you need focus in your own dog in order to get good results,

7. Use as a replacement to work with when your pup loses interest in class and

8. To provide the companion to the client when low turn up rate in some classes.

Of course, there are benefits for us as trainers too. I can train focus, attention, responses and most importantly, our dog generalize the situation and are able to be attentive to us in all situations.
