At ten weeks old, our Canine Companions puppy, Tambor, is already learning. Here is a method Puppy Raiser, Leslie Zelamsky, uses.
If you are not prepared to make it happen, do not ask, or your puppy will learn to listen only part of the time. Consistency, clarity and follow through are the keys to getting your puppy to learn. NEVER repeat your commands. NEVER train without the tools you need such as treats, training collar, and leash. NEVER ask anything of your puppy unless you have the time and energy to follow through and make it happen.
