First Training Session (Week 1)

Okay, So techically this isn't our first training session. We've tried to do some things in the past but they didn't work out so this is our new and improved training course.

When you hear me say "No!" most of the time it's because he is nibbling on my hair or jacket. Silly four year old . He already has his winter coat so he is SUPER fuzzy! I also only had a little while to work with him so I kinda skipped grooming. I groomed him afterwards though so he looks nice and well...he still looks pretty dirty

Also, sorry for the time we go out of frame. I wasn't paying attention. And the noisy chickens, you can guess what I'm having for dinner tonight .

Oh, and sorry for dropping the camera in the second video. I'm such a clutz.

And the time where I'm not doing anything up next to him is because I had to fix the lead rope.

I also was not mad at him really at all. Even when I yelled at him. If you look hard you can see I'm smiling because he was doing so well. :)

Yeah, okay... these are very good videos.... Not edited at all! How horrid.

I am super happy about Zane though, he is learning! Thanks so much to everyone who replied to my many many posts about training. Your amazing.

Have I mentioned I'm happy

Have you tried a rope halter? It works so much better than the nylon ones. Glad you had a great time!

He is wearing a rope halter. I agree that they work LOADS better than nylon.

I think you should start smaller with the rope then start getting bigger and bigger. This will make him more sensitive.

I was wondering if I was starting to hard. As soon as the rain clears off here I'm going out to work with him and I will start smaller. Thanks!
