Maddie is an easily excitable poodle puppy. When she first came to Dog Training Camp USA, she had a bad habit of jumping up to greet people. Maddie is almost through her 3 week training camp program and will graduate on Wednesday! Trainer Jonathan has been working hard with Maddie to practice keeping all four feet on the ground to receive attention. He sets Maddie up to succeed by having Maddie sit when people approach, and then giving them instructions on how to pet her.
She can get lots of petting and attention as long as her feet stay on the floor. If she lifts her paws to jump, people ignore her. This shows Maddie that she gets way more affection with paws on the ground. With lots of repetition and practice in new places, Maddie has polished up her self control and learned she still gets tons of attention if she follows the rules. Who could resist such a pretty girl?
Great Job Maddie! And a big thanks to the staff at @Lululemon in North Hills for helping with Maddie's training.
