Training starts now

Ok a couple of months ago. I was on this forum. And i mentionned that my puppy knows sit, down, stay.
I got busy for a couple of months; I just put his food and took him on a short walk every day or 2 and now i m totally free to really teach him.
Now he is 19 weeks (19kg is that a good weight btw)
And he doesnt always listen. Sometimes he sits on command and sometimes before i even say it. And some times he won't.
Also he is veeeeery energetic. And with his size hard to controle.

I need some help. How can i make him sit or stand still on cue. Can u link me some guides

Thanks

Practice and patience. He's still young. I'd keep it fun and lure with food and toys.

You may benefit from a good trainer. Especially if you have trouble controlling him at this young age. They really need to be under control and it's best to prevent issues by teaching them this from an early age on. We all have pulled out our hairs when raising GSD pups but by getting help if needed, patience, persistence and having a good sense of humor, you will get here (in about 2 years). Don't forget to enjoy his puppy hood and laugh at adolescence once in a while.

You'll definitely want to use food lures for basic training.

You are expecting a lot from a puppy when in your words "I got busy for a couple of months"

Puppies have very short attention spans, you should find a good trainer to help you. Something to remember is Never...Give a Command to a pup or a dog unless you are in a position to enforce the command. Otherwise you are teaching the pup......all the wrong things.

The pup should always be on a leash when you are training it.

The pups needs to be given simple achievable tasks with proper instructions, and you need to be fair and consistent in the training.

Pups are not much different than people, they are individuals and different things motivate them. Find out what motivates your pup - food, toy, praise or compulsion....maybe a combination of several.

Good luck
