Dogs and training them have always been a part of Pedro’s life. Along with training his family’s dogs, Pedro has also helped train a number of his friend’s dogs. Seven years before he moved from Massachusetts to Connecticut, Pedro purchased his very own dog, Logan. Logan is a large Blue Nose Pit-bull. Pedro purposely rescued a pit-bull because he believes that proper training, for any dog, is key. It was pretty easy for him to teach the basic commands, sit, come, stop and basic obedience. Wanting to take it a step further he then trained Logan to walk off leash and still respond to commands with multiple distractions.
Pedro has also worked with a dog trainer that specializes in e-collar training. Here he learned how to incorporate the use of an e-collar with traditional dog training. The best part about training his own dog Logan to walk off leash was the reactions he received from strangers. Training your dog to respond to your commands with distractions can go a long way in keeping them safe and out of trouble. It also goes hand in hand with Active Dog hikes!
