Sp00ks Couple of suggestions. I'm not a professional trainer... We have our pup in beginning puppy classes. Most of what is being taught, he already knew by the time we started.

Trainer told us there is no more "stay". Instead "sit" or "down" and a release like "free". The pup should stay until released. That is working but it's tough for us to get used to. Makes sense if you think about it.

Climb, off, leave it.

Leave it was interesting... Now I can drop raw hamburger on the floor and tell him to leave it. When he can have it, I tell him "free".

Here are a couple! she's been great so far. I don't know when they start to teeth, but I am pretty sure she already is. I have been working on bite limitation? lol I am not sure what the correct terminology is. Anyway, I just wanted to make sure I was getting a good start on things. I am a full time student so crate training was a must. I am not away from the house for more than two hours at a time.

LoveEcho Be prepared for the mouthiness to change as she begins to teeth

We can give better advice with...PICTURES!! (Not really, but man, we LOVE puppy pictures here )

12 week old puppy training needs

Hello all!
I am a new member here, so I took the time to look at what threads were here. I have a question about training at the age of 12 weeks. I have my puppy Archon potty trained to signal when she needs to eliminate. I have the basics down, such as sit, come, stay, go crate, down etc etc. I just had a question about what I might focus on next. She isn't really mouthy and has no issue with biting. However she does bark when I take her out side to go to the bathroom at random passers by. She also barks at dogs. Is there a technique that I can use to tame this behavior? And would a doggy day care for a few hours of play help?
Thank you!!!
