Loving how easy it is to train a GSD

This is our Josie at 10 wks! My lab picked up fetch more quickly but Josie is picking up every command! So far has mastered sit, down, high five, and almost fetch. Stay is taking a bit but she is catching on really quickly ?

they are very smart cookies. Love the clicker, doing that myself! So far ive taught mine sit , down , stand, turn, spin, touch, shake, speak and place . We are currently learning out, watch me, leave it, walk on a loose leash , no jumping up,settle, and not to chase the cats.
Just this morning he learned to jump on the couch and try to hurdle the half wall into the kitchen. Oh wait, thats not something i was teaching ! haha He's 12 weeks old.

are you new to clicker training? I am , and friends suggested 101 things to play with a box and its your choice game with my boy.. google the videos, its a good way to mentally stimulate them!

Yes this is the first time I've ever needed it. My other pups didn't need the clicker but just loved to spend time with us so they just learned as the went (lab mixs). She is so independent that I found I needed something to help reinforce training time. The clicker works like magic with her.

That is great your puppy has learned so many things!!!

Keep in mind that you have a young baby who is instinctually apt to follow the leader. In adolescence it can all go south on you if you aren't paying attention.

Had a friend who kept telling me how smart her dog was and didn't even need a leash and was heeling and had a perfect recall at 8 weeks old yada-yada. At 5 months he ran from her, blew off her recall and was killed by a car.

They are changing all the time.

What Dutch Karen said is true. There is a big difference in say training a 10 week old pup versus a 7 month old pup in a uncontrolled environment with unplanned distractions. For now though enjoy your pup.

Thanks for the comments ? Sorry I can't like with my phone but I completely understand how young animals act very different with distractions. My pup Rex 4 yrs old still will take off at the odd squirrel who taunts him on our runs and nearly pull my arm off in the process.
