A dog trainer with more than 30 years of experience is on a mission to train the world’s fastest clicking dog.
Thomas the Train is an Australian Shepherd that was rescued by animal rescue group SOS Cats and rescued by the ASPCA as a puppy.
It has been in the rescue system for more than 20 years.
Thomas is a fast and very good clicker.
He will do anything to get a treat.
The program consists of a clicker training class for three weeks, followed by a five-week obedience training course.
Thomas was chosen because he is a good click-er, but the training can be challenging.
He needs to learn how to do certain things, such as jumping and fetching.
He also needs to be able to sit and turn around.
“He is a very active dog and needs a lot of attention, and that’s where you can find a lot more of the trainers that have been trained and have a background in this kind of dog,” said Stephanie Zablocki, founder of SOS Cats.
Thomas has learned a lot in his first three weeks.
“The first week we did all the obedience training, the second week we just followed the lead of his trainer, but then he learned a bit more of what the trainer said and then we did the obedience class,” said Zablocksi.
Thomas loves to jump and fetch, but he also needs a good socialization.
“If you are having a really bad day and you can’t be around your family, you will be spending a lot less time with your family and that is a really important thing,” Zabloc said.
“This is a great dog, but we really need him to be more active and to get some more exercise and he needs that attention because he can do a lot.”
Zablockis hopes to train him to do more than jump and pull a sled, and she wants to show him some obedience training so he can become a good dog.
“For the dogs that are at the top of the food chain, this dog can be very challenging,” she said.
Zablocks said Thomas has shown promise in his obedience training.
“We just got him and we put him on a leash and he’s doing very well, he’s a great ambassador for the dog, and it’s not only a click-dog, it’s a good trainer,” she added.
