Always wanted a dog so this was just Good timing in our lives so how’s he Been adjusting in his first few days at Home with you so far i think that he’s Been adjusting really well in the Beginning he would kind of stay with us At all the time he’d only stay in the Front room but as the days go on he just Sort of runs around the house and is Getting more active with the cats and He’s being bolder and more curious so we Think he’s doing very well i’m really Excited to work with bruno and he seems Like he’s ready to get going too would You mind if i worked with him for a Little bit of course sure when you first Bring your new puppy or dog home don’t Throw too much on them at one time in Other words many dogs need some time to Adjust since a strong relationship with Your dog is essential prioritize growing Your bond with your dog as everything Will be built on top of this whatever Your dog’s circumstances try to Understand things from their perspective Now in bruno’s case this is his very First time being away from his mom and His litter mates so he needs some Serious patience and understanding it’s Going to take months for your dog to Take in this world learn our language And understand how we expect them to Behave keep that at the front of your Mind during that first year of training
If you have a young puppy like bruno They’re still rapidly developing too Watch out for those teeth this puppy Biting catches a lot of people off guard If you need help getting through the Puppy biting stage with your dog i’m Gonna have a video in the description of This video one of the first things You’ll want to do is teach your new dog Their name so that they can begin to Understand that it’s their attention we Want when we call them by their name Bruno come here See it’s not working yet so the first Thing you want to do is just get your Dog’s attention on you maybe by making a Little bit of a sound like Hey Yes good job right there i’m going to Reward bruno simply because he Acknowledged me but obviously i don’t Want to have to name him We want him to understand what bruno Means now i’m going to do the same thing But this time i’m going to introduce his Name Bruno yes good job bruno You have to be very deliberate when Teaching your dog a new word a new Phrase or something like their name see When he acknowledged me there i said his Name so that he can begin to connect his Name with paying attention to me and i’m Also right there to make sure that i
Offer him something amazing like this Turkey in order to make an impactful Memorable experience for him and right Now that he’s jumping on me i’m not even Concerned with that the fact that he’s Paying attention to me and responding to His name is far more important Bruno yes oh did you see his eyes just Snap up to me when i said his name right There he’s doing really well really Quickly on this since when you’re with Your dog at this age they’re definitely In a supervised situation you’ll have Lots of opportunities to reward them for Giving you their attention voluntarily Or when you call their name really take Advantage of this catch them off guard As often as you can and reward them Heavily when they stop what they’re Doing to pay attention to you or respond To their name now i’m walking around Here just to try and mix things up a Little bit so that he starts to Generalize that i still want him Responding to bruno when i’m walking Around when we’re outside and so on so It’s important to practice these things Before you expect them to associate These behaviors in general everyday life If you’ve gotten a new puppy you’re Probably going to want to teach them how To sit pretty early on many dogs will do This pretty instinctively but the idea Is that you can teach them how to sit
Specifically when you ask them to do so Sit is so important because you’re going To ask them to do this time and time Again so it’s worth putting in the time Right now to get it looking really good It’s easiest to teach your dog sit by Luring them into position you really Want to use that nose and a really good Currency like real turkey or real Chicken to your advantage but think of Your dog’s nose and the treat that You’re using as two separate magnets at First that magnetic attraction between Their nose and their treat is kind of Loose if you keep the treat really close To his nose then it’s much more likely To keep his attention see this look how Close that is you have to go in really Slow motion if you haven’t done this Before most people tend to go too fast Like this but really what you want to do Is go super super slow Look at that see that sits this time i’m Going to introduce the word sit to him As he sits Yes sit most dogs are going to pick up On this really fast so you should be Able to start phasing out the lure Pretty quickly on something like sit Anyway so watch this Sit good job see he anticipated because We practiced several times in a row Bruno Yes good gave me his attention when i
Called his name sit Hey that looks really good let’s go for Some bonus content now and see if we can Teach bruno how to lie down sit Good Again we’re gonna do the same exact Thing and we’re going to go nice and Slow just like this yes i’m going to Reward there simply because he moved his Front foot forward i’m not going to Insist that he does a complete lie down Immediately i’m rewarding for progress That’s the most important thing don’t be So greedy when you’re introducing new Behaviors Yes Excellent job now with some dogs this Might take a few days other dogs it Might take a few minutes it really just Depends on a variety of factors make Sure you check out my brand new book i’m Gonna have a link in the description so That you can pick up your copy today Give bruno a big thumbs up he did Terrific today and subscribe to my Channel and set up automatic pet food Delivery at petflow.com i make lots of Puppy videos because i know that if we Can get dogs on the right path while They’re young then they’ll have less Issues in the future help me continue to Educate people about raising the perfect Puppy by contributing to my crowdfunding Campaign on patreon all of the links to
