like call command treat praise.... and repeat
and yet im still trying to teach her her name :P
i read alot of infos said puppies be able to know there name at 1 month, some of them said 2 months. its never a straight answer to a simple question.
thats why im thinking maybe im doing the wrong thing and its not about the puppy.
shes 1.5 month now.during the training when i call her name and she looks at me she gets a treat and all works gd.
after that nothin. today i tried to call her she didnt even bothered to look lol i waited like 30 minutes and i use the clicker she comes running to me and sits next to me with a mouth open waiting for something

|onyx'girl||Can you access training videos, Michael Ellis, Bart Bellon, etc? Give yourself some credit...it isn't that complex working with a puppy that is eager to please and learn, GSD's are usually ready and willing to work!|

if i to send her, ill have to wait till shes 4 months old.
and the thing is since i have no experience and didnt found any home trainers im afraid that shes gonna grow know nothin and will be hard to raise her.or even hard to go out with her when shes adult and strong...

I don't think "working with her more" is the best way to go. How old will your puppy be during this board and train time?
Most pups can only handle small bursts of training. They should show you what to work on for homework, but not go overboard with it.
Training isn't something that should be done in a rushed way....set up a solid foundation is the most important thing, and be fair to the puppy.
A 24 hour period should not involve more than 2 hours of total training for an immature dog(and that is broken up into several short sessions), even then, it is way more than what many pups should have to deal with.
Getting the pup into the real world to explore, use its nose and learn about surfaces, sounds, scents,sights is way more informative in that sponge stage than repetitive obedience style training. Teaching rear end awareness, perchwork and focus is something I'd be looking into, recalls and engagement too.
You can usually find this info online.
Is there anyone local that has a littermate or pup that is about the same age as your pup, you could work together and spot each other

and yeah i go there daily.
when i talked to the manager and the trainer they said that the visits will be daily but like 2-3 hours to spend with her and training.
she stays there so they can work with her more

i searched for a trainer at home but sadly i didnt find any. i only found schools where u have to leave ur dog for 3-4 months.
the last one i found i found it the best as i visit my puppy and work with him daily but she still needs to stay there
thats why im a bit confused and not so happy about sending her away from me

|Pax8||Oh, a board and train. I misunderstood what you meant by a "school". I say skip the board and train unless you have extenuating circumstances that truly prevent you from being there to train your dog. Work with your dog. Build your relationship with her through training and be the one she looks to for leadership. I'm not a fan of sending a dog to a board and train unless there are extreme circumstances that call for a dog to have intensive one on one training or a new environment to train in. And even then I question it.|
