Training Thor

In January 2010, Thor, a 5-month-old weimaraner, came crashing into my life.

Here, I will outline the steps taken to train him to be a well-mannered dog,

to do agility, and to perform some service dog tasks.

At five months, he is pretty wild.

Ten Good Things About Thor

1.   He's people-focused and very friendly.
2.   He makes great eye contact (voluntarily).
3.   He takes food from me gently.
4.   He's curious.
5.   He's playful and likes toys.
6.   He's smart.
7.   He's fearless (almost)*.
8.   He's respectful of my old dog.
9.   Smooth coat (minimal grooming).
10. He's tough (falling/bumping doesn't faze him).

*Last night's wind scared him when we were outside.
  He's wary (not scared) when meeting new dogs.

  1. Melinda, This blog is inspirational for all those who have tried to train a puppy
    with little luck and for those in the process now. I almost wish I had my own dog
    to train at this time!!! As always, I love your photos. Pam
