Teach your Dog to Chew Appropriately
If your dog thinks your couch or shoes are a toy, then you should try the tips in the video above. Kristyn teaches a Presa Canario how to appropriately chew his toys. Appropriate toy play is the first step toward preventing your couch or shoes from being torn to shreds.
Train Your Dog to Stay
The command “stay” is a crucial obedience behavior for dogs. It can potentially save your dog’s life or keep them out of harm’s way. Kristyn demonstrates how easy it is to teach your dog the command and have it stick after one or two days!
Teach Your Dog to Come With Their Name
Sean teaches this energetic and adorable puppy the “come” command using the dog’s name. This helps the dog learn his name and the “come” command at the same time. This is just the first step in training this advanced behavior.
Teaching a Puppy to Sit
The command “sit” is the most basic obedience behavior you may want to teach your dog. It is also the groundwork for many other commands such as “stay.” See how you can get your puppy to sit in the video above.
Prepare your Puppy For Vet and Groomer Visits
Many dogs do not enjoy going to the vet or groomer. There are ways of improving their behavior in these situations. Sean demonstrates what you can do to prepare your dog for vet and groomer visits in the video above.
