|wolfy dog||What a good boy and what a great ambassador for the breed. This is how they should be. Same goes for the kids and the mail man too. Most good parents have good dogs as well.|

Before I even brought Kane home at 8 weeks, I watched numerous Leerburg videos on choosing a puppy, and puppy training. I watched outside the room and studied the entire litter of puppies how they played, interacted, etc. The characteristics that Kane displayed was what I was looking for. From the time he came home it was establishing pack, socialization, basic obedience, and working on recall. When in the house, he was on a leash attached to a belt I had on. So, where ever I went he went. To this day, he goes where I go. Kane is not a dog that requires, if any, aversives, or compulsion training. In fact, he will shut down if any severe correction is applied. He is a dog that loves to please, so training is easy. During adolescence, he had his "brat moments", but nothing to write home about. I just want to note, that with recall training, I trained him to answer to hand signals, verbal, and whistle commands. I take him out to my parents 10 acre farm a lot and we go out in the fields and forest. Even though he is much the Velcro dog, it is better to be safe than sorry with the different levels of recall. Don't get me wrong, he is a confident dog, but he looks to me for direction above all. My training is quite eclectic actually.lol I don't stick with one thing. I stick with what works best for Kane.

. Yes, I found it admirable. The goal of all dog trainers (and owners!)
May I ask how you trained him? Was it without a leash? What method did you use? Did you use aversives? Was he an easy puppy, especially during adolescence?

|bunchoberrys||Doggiedad, I wish Kane would get the mail, but I have tried so many different training methods and about a box and a half of Scooby treats later...no luck. I think its a texture thing. There is not a lot of things that he will not try, but when it comes to retrieving......he is quite picky. *sigh* But that's OK. He makes it up in everything else he does.|

Wow, That is a dream world for me. The mailman, Fedex, UPS, are arch enemies at my house. My mailman is an A** so I could not get him to offer my dog a treat even if I asked.
Very cute video.

nice video, nice looking dog. our dog loves the mail carrier. we open
the door and he goes down the driveway and the mail person
gives him the mail. once he gets the mail he brings it to us.
often my neighbor comes out when the mail person is there.
our dog goes back and gets her mail and brings it to her.

when you have a well trained dog you can get away without having a collar on. as seen.

|bunchoberrys||Thank you all for the kind comments. Sri, you are correct, he does not have a collar on. I only put the collar on when we are going out (leaving the property).|
