In the beginning he would kind of stay with us at all the time, you'd only stay in the front room but as the days go on he just sort of runs around the house and its getting more active with the cats and he's being bolder and more curious so we think hes doing very well im really excited to work with bruno and he seems like hes ready to get going too would you mind if i worked with him for a little bit.
When you first bring your new puppy or dog home dont 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 dogs circumstances try to understand things from their perspective. now in brunos case this is his very first time being away from his mom and his litter mates so he needs some serious .
Patience and understanding its gonna 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 theyre still rapidly developing to watch out for those teeth.
This puppy biting catches a lot of people off-guard if you need help getting through the puppy biting state with your dog im gonna have a video in the description of this video one of the first things youll want to do is teach your new dog their name so, that they can begin to understand that its their attention we want when we call them by their name; (bruno come here) see its not working yet so the first thing you want to do is just get your dogs attention on you, maybe by making a little bit of a sound like yes good job right there im going to reward bruno simply because he acknowledged me but obviously.
I dont want to have to name him we wanted him to understand what bruno means now im going to do the same thing but this time im 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 im 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 im not even concerned without 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 hes doing really well really quickly.
On this since when youre with your dog at this age theyre definitely in a supervised situation youll 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 theyre doing to pay attention to you or respond to their name.
Nnow im 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 im walking around when were outside and so on so its important to practice these things before you expect them to associate these behaviors in general everyday life if youve gotten a new puppy youre 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 ask them to do so sit is so important because youre gonna ask them to do this time and time again so its worth putting in the time right now to get looking really good.
Its 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 dogs nose and the treat that youre using as two separate magnets at first that magnetic attraction between their nose and the tree is kind of loose if you keep the treat really close to his nose and its much more likely to keep his attention see this look how close that is you have to go in.
Really slow motion if you havent 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 sit this time im going to introduce the word sit to him as he sits yes sit most dogs are gonna 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 game his attention when i called his name sit hey that looks really good lets 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 were gonna go nice and slow just like this yes im gonna reward there simply because he moved his front foot forward im not going to insist that he does a complete lie down immediately im rewarding for progress thats the most important thing dont be so greedy when youre introducing new behaviors yes excellent job now what 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 im gonna have a link in the description.
