    I made this video as an introduction to puppy training. Many people who bring home a young dog between 8-12 weeks find training to be an overwhelming experience. Even if you have had a dog in the past, it's easy to forget the small details that are essential for puppies and can truly make a big difference.
    I plan on releasing a number of new tutorials featuring Watson who is seen in this video as a 9 week old Labrador Retriever. If you would like to make requests for specific videos or want to join the conversation on dog training, be sure to follow our Facebook page and subscribe to the channel so you can stay posted on new releases.

    I suggest not putting the treats on the ground for him, he many understand that as being able to eat what Ever is on the ground, also by hand feeding you can communicate with him to help him control his bite.

    Hi, i have a gsd, bruno. He's 1 year old, and i gave him basic obedience training when he was around 4 months. That included walking, commands like sit, down, sleep, speak, and also the NO command. He learnt very quickly and i kept practicing for about 2 months and later on training periods lessened. Now he is pulling the leash too much so that i have to put him in a choke collar. Bith of us are getting uncomfortable while he is in the leash.
    I've seen ur video about how to avoid leash pulling. I tried it and he is not responding well....
    Can u suggest me what i can do to make him respond to the training?
    Thanks in advance

      Amber Goodman then he's a smart dog getting out of human control . He knows if he expresses himself in any way you will try to control him and say he can't do this or he can't do that . Being quiet and not doing anything is the best thing possible because you can't tell him to sit stay roll over play dead or anything . I just feel like instead of training dogs we control them too much to where they are too quiet and don't want to do anything . Of course it's not the case with all dogs but some dogs grow up too quiet too fearful to attract attention . Of course I am not saying you are doing any of this but do you feel like maybe he's playing it smart so he doesn't get told that he can't do something he Really likes ?

  • Rebekah Harker
    Rebekah Harker 9 months ago

    I have a 15 week mini labradoodle who is full of beans. She never settles or lyes down unless cued for a treat or unless I put her in her crate. So when she is out around the house with me, I cannot take my eyes off her. She'll go on her bed on cue but then instantly get off. There is no just settling and relaxing. And as she never offers this behaviour i cannot reinforce it when i see it.
    On our walks she runs straight to the end of the long clix training lead i'm using. She's so young and excited she's not interested in food on a walk. I'm using the method where as soon as she pulls I stop in my tracks and only continue when the lead loosens a bit but she's not getting it. We take a few steps, and she pulls so we stop, then we take a few more steps, she pulls, so then we stop. It makes for a really unenjoyable walk. I don't want to let her develop bad habits, but am I expecting too much of such a young pup??

    • Lightning Girl 8888
      Lightning Girl 8888 3 months ago

      Rebekah Harker yes you are expecting too much . You know what I find funny we spend they're entire puppyhood controlling them and training them and when they enter old age we begin wishing they would be puppies again and be young . I just find it funny .

I am confident in you that these work as I have helped shaped my mother's two dogs one 14 one 2 when I moved back. Please create an app so I can have you in my pocket at all times 😁 thank you again

    I have a quick question not regarding training. Kind of... Is the German Shepard trained with a clicker as well? I will assume yes! How did you get him to a place where he/she did not think all clicks were for her/him as well?
    And how do you deal with over excitement? My dog is constantly over excited when training. I only click and treat when he is sitting calmly and not jumping up and tipping

    I have a question please. I have a mini Aussie puppy she is about 3 months old and we are still working on house training her and I was wondering if we should start doing this as well too or wait until she has got the house training down? I watched your other video on house training and I am trying to follow it and she is getting it good but still has an accident from time to time so I am not sure when to start training her other things.
