Tips on puppy training
Try to chose a name that does not sound like an obedience command eg: Rover - Over, Neal - Heel or Comet - Come.
The tone of your voice is very important so as not to confuse the puppy.
Use a coaxing tone - to excite the pup into doing something.
Remember when you call your dog and it comes to you to praise it, don't scold it.
Getting the puppy to walk on a lead.
This tip even works on older or stubborn dogs.
Try this a couple of times during the day for ten minutes at a a time. This should get him use to the rope that eventually will be replaced by a lead.
