MALIK’S BASIC DOG TRAINING TIPS
- Hold a treat on Puppy’s nose while she is standing.
- Slowly lure her head up until Puppy’s bottom touches the floor.
- As soon as this happens, say, “Yes!” and give Puppy the treat.
- Repeat this several times.
- After Puppy has learned the sit command, ask her to sit.
- Say, “Stay” and at the same time, hold up one hand, palm facing toward Puppy, and hold up a treat in the other hand.
- After a couple of seconds, say, “OK,” praise and treat Puppy for staying still.
- Keep the stays short at first, then build up the time Puppy waits for your OK command before being treated.
- Hold a treat on Puppy’s nose while in a sitting position and slowly lower the treat to the ground.
- Puppy should follow the treat to the floor. As soon as she is in a down position with elbows touching the floor, say, “Yes!” and treat Puppy.
- Hold a treat on Puppy’s nose.
- Turn and walk away. While looking back at Puppy, say, “Puppy, come”.
- When Puppy reaches you, say, “Yes!” and treat Puppy.
