Terrier Pup Demonstrates Body Awareness Exercises Pt 1

There are so many benefits from working body awareness exercises like this video as you will see this young terrier’s confidence grow.

Odie is a 16wk Jack Russell x Border Terrier and this is only his second session working on a raised platform but look at his confidence and trust already.

Notice his hesitation to “down” on the basket, and his handler’s patience while he figures out he can do it and will be fine.

This handler uses verbal markers or you can use a clicker in the beginning stages if your timing is slow like mine.

Love this guys focus! Being a terrier puppy that in itself is quite the accomplishment and shows great work by the handler.
