That they’re very solid on their basics And a home environment first for those Of you with puppies especially under the Age of five months or so don’t make the Mistake of thinking that just because They stay near you off leash that They’re just pretty reliable off leash That’s very normal for young dogs so Keep them on leash in the beginning be Prepared for intermittent compliance Because of course your dog is very Excited that’s normal don’t be Discouraged if they don’t listen to you As well see the trick to teaching your Dog to listen to you in an unfamiliar Place like this is to simulate an Uncontrolled environment don’t be Tempted to take the lead off during the Preliminary phases of teaching your dog How to listen to you off leash even in a Fenced area because this is a big area Out here if Jacob were to bolt after a Small animal for example I wouldn’t have Much way to get to him if you are one of Those people out there who has taken the Lead off your dog and they have Repeatedly experienced getting away from You then just simply take a step back on Your training put the lead back on your Dog taking a step back on your training Is completely normal expected and Required during the first several months Of teaching your dog now that Jacobs Energy is out and he’s become acclimated

To the area and smelled around he’s Starting to get used to it out here our Next step is to go over the basics that Jacob already knows for example things He does flawlessly at home now I’m gonna Be using tiny pieces of real meat today I’m just gonna give him one to warm him Up about lie down hey this is looking Really good now if I had tried this Before exercising you know he wouldn’t Be quite as reliable stay I’ll take a Play dead I’m gonna try and keep things Really easy and I’m gonna reinforce by Giving lots of good treats and authentic Encouragement along the way Good nice work buddy it’s important to Change as few variables as possible when You’re introducing new concepts to them In this case even though we’re not going Over any type of new training I’ve Changed his environment dramatically You’re so smart you’re doing great are Now I’m going to up the level of Difficulty a little bit I’m gonna ask Him to do his basics with a little bit Of this It’s like he does at home Jacob Syd Snuck up a little bit on me there I’m Gonna let him get by with it though Because remember I want to be kind of Liberal with my rewards because I’m Asking him to do it in this strange Exciting place Jacob look at me stay lie Down

Yes stay rewarding for each individual Thing whereas at home I probably reward Every third or fourth time uneasy stuff Like this like with all of your training The more you practice it the more Reliable your dog becomes the less you Will have to reinforce them with food Rewards or Tory rewards it’ll just Become second nature to them will you Play dead well it’s a little tougher Isn’t it Play dead go on yes good job sir that’s Good stay Jacob come on I’m kind of Picking up my energy a little bit cuz He’s starting to kind of wane off a Little bit so I want to be more Interesting to him now comes the most Major test of all and I really have no Idea how he’s going to do with this we Want to make sure that he knows how to Stay when confronted with a distraction The way that I like to do this is to Introduce a concept called the surprise Stay I’ll have a link in the description If you haven’t taught your dog to Surprise steak because you want this Pretty tight and flawless at home first Before doing it in a place like this but The idea is that I’m going to throw a Distraction at him that he doesn’t see Coming at all okay no really good there Comes day good and you can see I mean Your dog has to be good about resisting The urge to chase a toy like that before

You can expect them to not chase a Squirrel other dog or cat for example I Know yes good boy really good moment Right there he really wanted to go for That toy but he held his stead surprise Stays and other exercises like this Along with taking advantage of real-life Organic circumstances that arise for What’s required in order to teach your Dog to listen to you under a variety of Different circumstances it takes months Of doing this and going to lots of Different places but if you want your Dogs listen to you in lots of different Places you got to teach them in lots of Different places too did you know videos Like this are made possible by our one Patrons on patreon calm and are very Loyal sponsor pet flow calm those are Two ways that you can help us continue To educate the public about humane Scientifically sound principles you can Make a small monthly contribution to our Patreon campaign or something as easy as Changing the way you buy dog food I’ll Have all of the details in the Description about how you can do that But Jacob did an awesome job giving a Big thumbs up make sure you’re Subscribed to my channel too I’ve got Lots of fun videos coming and of course Like me on Facebook good job okay Object Take him come yes
