I start them early. Short, fun, engaging sessions.
The "pup" in the Leerburg video is a stunt dog....probably 10 years old and a triple Ninja rated Schutzhund dog....and at least 30 movies under her belt.

FuzzButtMum I started Finnicks training the day he came home (start as you mean to go on). I'd recommend using a clicker and treats. Finnick has a very short attention span...as do most puppies but he LOVES training because it = yummy treats! Since he's been with us he's learnt...Sit, Stay, Down, Out, Leave it, Come and Speak. It's great mental stimulation for them. If your pup isn't food driven then try rewarding him with toys.

Good luck and HAVE FUN!

Can you tell me how you make it more fun for them?

GSDkid Make training fun and positive so they'll always look forward to more sessions. I started training my pups as soon as I could. Just 10 to 15 minutes a day at minimum.

WHEN to train?

My puppy is 8 weeks old today. He knows sit so far, but really has no interest in training sessions. He's either way too hyper to concentrate or exhausted and wandering off to sleep. I'm assuming this is how most puppies are, so I'm wondering when people find an ideal time for training is? I really would like to teach him more.
