These two dogs are performing exercises seen in advanced levels of competitive obedience.

Zagal demonstrates an example of perfect canine attention!  Attention is essential to successful training.

This stallion had serious issues with all things concerning his hooves (and much, much more). Following several weeks of 3 times weekly sessions with positive reinforcement - a clicker and a LOT of carrots! - he is allowing them to be handled and cleaned.
The owners had the stallion for one year and not been able to touch him.  Now look! This stallion surely had a fabulous temperament before he was seriously abused.  What I believe I did was restore his confidence in people with a lot of positive reinforcement for desirable behavior.  It worked!

Zagal "forgot" his name while playing in the river so we had a short session in the river In rivers you still respond, big guy!
