About Me

My photo
I am a male yellow Lab. My birth date is September 4th 2011. I am in training to be a guide dog for the blind. (guide dog school -Southeastern Guide Dogs) I'm my raiser's fifth guide dog puppy. She will keep me for (about) 1 year, then I will head off to harness training! Please feel free to follow my blog and keep up with: Brandon's Life... As a guide dog in training

Sit, down, stay!

My trainer has finally gotten some videos of me doing some commands! (She tells me her voice doesn't sound very good on camera, sorry!)
The commands used in the following movies are "Sit", "Down", "Stay", "Leave-it", "Go get it", "Okay", "Find the door", "Switch", "Forward out", "Find the stairs", "Forward up", "Forward down", "Right about", "Heel", and the most popular... "Good boy"!!



I have now learned the "down" command from a stand. Though most of the time I still sit first, my trainer doesn't have to say "sit" anymore.

I have also included a couple movies of me doing "find the door", and "find the stairs". While doing "find the stairs" a cat come up and messed with the stand the camera was sitting on... so you see a black & white cat's head/tail:) and the camera shaking...


While doing some of these movies, I wasn't too "awake" so my trainer had to remind me what to do :) (Like when I am doing the heel command...)

Enjoy the movies, let me know what you think!!

I haven't watched the videos yet, but I must say I love when you show us what commands you guys learn! Every school teaches different things or the same things differently so it's nice.

If you can, please comment on my blog with an e-mail address I can send the private blog invite to. I won't publish your e-mail /grin/ Have a good one!

Very impressive! I wish I could get Ggoody to lay down like that on command.

Very nice!!! We also teach them to sit at doors and changes in elevation. We aren't allowed to teach switch because the service dogs and guide dogs switch differently. Thanks for sharing - He's doing great!
