Stay Focused, San Jose Puppy Training, Canine Tutors Dog Training 

Hello, My name is Ashley Starling and if you are looking for San Jose puppy training then please watch this dog training video.

Dogs learn by doing. Whatever you allow, encourage them to do they will repeat, especially if they get any kind of reward from the behavior. If you as the trainer and the creator of the environment only allow for success then your dog will learn quickly and with great enthusiasm.

In this puppy training video I am showing my 6 month old border collie puppy how to sit properly. I don’t want to “teach” him how to lie down or to stand up during a sit. So I get out the place board and his favorite toy for the moment. I hold the toy where his head will naturally and willingly look upward to me. This creates engagement with the handler and with the dog’s head in an upward position this helps facilitate keeping him in a sit. Notice in the video how I have my hand placed on the dog’s leash. It’s not just anyplace. At some points it’s just and in away from the collar on the dogs neck. If my dog starts to raise his rear end I will put gentle pressure on the collar to reinforce that we are still sitting.

My dog knows when we are done because I use the same release word every single time. He knows even as a young 6 month old puppy to wait for it. Bart Bellon uses a strong “whoosh” noise that the dog only hears when the job is done right.

If you are doing dog training or puppy training in San Jose give us a call and we will set up an appointment for a free no obligation evaluation. Happy training!
