Puppy Training Guide Tips:

We like to use the analogy that teaching new behaviors to dogs is like teaching a toddler how to write his name. Do you just hand a kid a crayon and expect him to know how to spell his name and write it all out neatly? Of course not! Before we can expect a child to simply write his name, he first needs to learn how to:
🖍️ Hold a crayon
🖍️ Make marks on paper
🖍️ Move his hand to produce the different lines
🖍️ Remember what each letter looks like
🖍️ Form each letter
🖍️ Correctly sequence each letter
🖍️ Write legibly,
🖍️ …. and so on!
Even seemingly simple tasks (to you) involve quite a lot of time, knowledge, and skill! It’s easy to write off a training task as “easy” and jump ahead too quickly – even seasoned professional trainers sometimes forget! You’ll save a lot of frustration for both you and your dog if you move slowly and only proceed to the next “step” after mastering the first step. If your dog is struggling, you moved ahead too quickly! Go back and practice the previous “step” of your training plan, or find an intermediate “step” to bridge the gap. Your dog will learn faster, have more fun, and be eager to learn more if you’re always working at his level and slowly buildings on wins. Pinky Promise! 🥳
