Puppy Training (14 weeks ++)


I was just wondering how much i could expect from my puppy allready?
He is 14 weeks old now and he knows how to:

House clean, Sit, Down, Come to me on call, Leash walking is getting very good aswell.

I know i shouldnt do more than about 10-15mins training every day, and i dont either.. Might do just a few extra minutes at home if we're playing around.

If i could expect more, or train more, what?
If not, when is the proper time to start with more training?

Your pup is still very young. He is a quick learner but you are smart not to overdue it. Puppies grow so fast and they get tired out. They also need lots of nap time, play time, and just time to explore the outdoors, watch other people, and dogs, and of course squirrels So if I were you, I would just keep it to the small sessions you are doing - keep it fun, and instead of adding on more training, I would work on the socialization - taking the puppy to different places. Sitting on a park bench and letting the puppy explore and watch. Serious training can wait until 6 months, in my opinion. Enjoy this time now.
