session with her so I thought it might be a good idea to do some training exercises with her and go over some things that you need to keep in mind with your new dog on their first day first week or first month even the first thing that you're gonna want to prioritize is getting to know your new puppy my general goal here is just to see how receptive she is to communicating with me today I'm using a very high value currencies real meats remember almost everybody uses pieces that are way too big so we're gonna keep them nice and small I don't even know if Goldie knows how to sit yet so let's see we'll just use that nose in this turkey like magnets to lure her back until that butt just falls into a sit let's see almost sit good you can see how she's a little receptive to lure training with young dogs like this their focus can be so in and out that you know even though you're using something like real Turkey they may go in and out see right there she's like what about the other hand I'm trying to keep her focused on this and don't worry if your puppy doesn't seem to know what you're asking of them just yet you're in the very beginning stages of building your communication plus you've got all of my videos on YouTube to help you out so don't sweat anything sit until her butt just hits the ground so sit looks really good how about look at me look at me is a core skill that all dogs need to have cuz you have to be able to get their attention on you and look at you so that you can guide them so I'm going to use the treat hold it up here so I have eye contact almost yes even though I kind of had a little eye contact she was mainly looking at the treat that's still okay we can focus on phasing out the treat in a future lesson let me come by and sit and look at me now let's just see if we can get that yes look at me good job you're amazing impulse control is a huge thing in dog training that's where we have to teach our dogs how to override their initial impulses for example if I put a piece of meat right here in front of Goldie and I say leave it alone that's not very effective is it you can't just do what you want because you want to all the time what if that was a squirrel running across the street but let's quickly teach you how to leave a piece of meat alone without restraining her or forcing her to leave it alone in any way I'm gonna teach her to think that's why this is a powerful exercise so I'm gonna close my hand every time she goes for it when she backs off I'm going to reveal it and I'm just looking forward to show just a tiny bit of restraint at first right now she's just acting impulsively trying to get that tree that's not what we want yes good job so right there she just stopped on her own I appreciate that but still she's not leaving that sheet alone yet yes right there I like that she kind of laid off for just of minut second but let's see if we can improve that just a little bit more and every time she goes through the treat I'm just gonna pull away until she shows some restraint so when you see it in your dog's eyes that they're trying make sure you let them know that you appreciate that yes good girl now we're starting to hit some momentum I'm not saying leave it or anything like that I'm just strictly communicating with her visually here now let's see if we get her to exhibit 3 seconds of impulse control yes good job I'll take it for a 1st leave a training session she's off to a great start another great way to really increase communication with your dog is to play with them some dogs are into some toys more than others that's why it's important to try out a huge variety of different toys to really find out what your dog likes this is what you want if your dog is this intense about a toy you've probably got the right one and it's really important that you understand that your dog picks their favorite toy you don't to do that but some things you can do to increase the likelihood that your dog is gonna like a toy is make it really interesting move it around a little bit you want these toys to really retain their potency so it's important not to let your dog have access to it unless you're engaging it in other words you want this toy to always be exciting every time you bring it out play is important because it accelerates the bond between you and your dog like nothing else can and it allows you to get to know each other really well and very quickly and that equals faster training success keep in mind that just because your dog loves a toy during one training session they may lose interest in that the next day or eventually or whatever so you want to make sure that you have a variety of different toys that you can play with aside from toys being a really great way for you to bond with your dog they're also great for rewards and for just enriching your dog's life in general if your dog is a problem puppy biting as Goldie currently is right now because she's young and teething having the right kind of toys to get their attention on is also crucial and see you see what I'm doing here I'm making the toy interesting I'm not just offering the toy saying do something with it think outside the box when it comes to offering toys to your dogs as well sometimes traditional dog toys may not interest your particular dog one of my favorite dog training hacks are cat toys and while you wouldn't really encourage your dog to play tug-of-war with this you might be able to encourage them to chase it around getting your dog to chase something is still play even if it's not tug it helps with their coordination it's fun for them look at that if you're using a toy like this you would want to make sure they don't grab a hold of it and swallow any feathers but this is really just to kind of get her engaging with me see how much fun she's having there right when your dog is having fun with you they're more likely to listen to you so there's more to play than might meet the eye of course a tennis ball is a classic dog toy this one's squeezed so I like tennis balls at squeaky teaching your puppy how to come to you is critical and you can start right away with introducing this general concept but do you understand that it takes months of training come when called in a variety of different settings before your dog truly understands and generalizes the skill here's a fun little exercise we can do to get started I've got a little treat here this is a dog treat and I'm using a dog treat here because it's easy to toss and you can by tossing a little treat like that over there and since she knows that treats coming from me she's likely to come back on her own here after a couple of attempts to say hey can I have another one and I'm gonna give her another one toss the treats there she goes and she's gonna wait pretty naturally come back to me come very good I'm saying come as she's in the process of walking to me just to let her know what she's doing so that's a really great way to introduce this whole concept of come when called to your new puppy teaching your new puppy how to walk on a leash can be definitely a little problematic at first because you know puppies don't really understand why we would attach them to a leash but it's for their safety so we can keep good control of them and I'd like to see how Goldie responds to her first leash walking session we're already gonna start to combine some of the things that we've already gone over in order to keep this really simple all I want to do is see if I can get look at me while moving she looked up at me so I'm gonna go ahead and reward at this point in her training almost every time that she looks up at me while moving she's kind of pulling ahead but I really want her paying attention to me Hey yes good girl very good over here come on there we go up here so you can see we're already combining things like look at me come when called can we get a sit we sure can so things are really coming together quickly here for one training session now if your dogs doing this well don't get too excited or overconfident because it's a lot easier for dogs to pick up these easy skills like this in a really distraction-free environment and that's really where you want to start with your dog as to not overwhelm them the main thing you want is your dog just paying attention to you while moving and we are certainly accomplishing that here I'm rapidly changing directions trying to be unpredictable little hesitation there but I just worked with her through it and I'm resisting the urge to pull her to say hey come on because that's not really gonna teach her anything long-term or at all for that matter her leash skills are looking fantastic you're off to such a good start next you're definitely going to want to be able to get your dog's attention on you when you ask so for this you'll need a good food reward or play reward whatever your dog is responding to and a positive attitude most dogs aren't going to intuitively understand their name just because you keep saying it to them however most dogs especially young curious ones like Goldie will respond to you know a high-pitched sound or a kissy noise let's see and she looked up at me so I'm gonna go ahead and give her a reward and so every time she responds to any vocalization I'm making I'm gonna go ahead and reward her now after a few times of doing that you can start to pair that with your dog's name Goldie right there good see she was investigating my hand for treats I made the sound and she looked up at me Goldie he's job let's let her forget about the treats for a second Goldie yes and right there even though she didn't respond immediately I gave it a second I didn't continue to say Goldie Goldie Goldie because I had a hunch she was gonna look up at me Goldie doing great so she's really coming around very quickly now of course you'll need to be ready for house training as well and house training can be a weeks to months long process so don't underestimate what's required there but if you're really consistent you start immediately you can dramatically reduce the time it would otherwise take if you have a new dog especially a young puppy don't put the responsibility on them to let you know when they have to go for now just give them ample opportunities to relieve themselves in acceptable places that way you can help them develop good habits by preventing bad ones from day one real time that we've been focusing on this training session is probably 30 minutes so far there's a lot you can do with your dog right away when you get them but training is really about repetition and training in a variety of contexts over a period of many months but this is how you get started obviously there's a lot more to training a puppy than what we've covered here but I'm gonna have a link to my playlist on how to teach your puppy or dog the basics and beyond in order that
