    I just bought a black lab puppy, and I would love to learn how to train him. Your dog is beautiful and smart.

    Nice dog, I just bought a puppy yesterday and I’m trying to train him but he is not paying mind to his treats as a reward. If you have a tip I would apreciate it. 🙂

    Do not use treats as a training tool. Have a training objective and repeat/repeat the lesson until you get the desired results. Some dogs can get a lesson down it minutes, but most take days and even weeks. Start simple and advance at a slow pace.

    You can use water as a training tool. But, you have to start on land to get the pick-up and come.

    Sorry pal, but what your dog lacks is basic discipline. How you think you can teach it to retrieve when he hasn’t learnt the basics of sitting and waiting for a command from you is beyond me. CALM THE DOG DOWN.

    This video is not about the basics of discipline. Its about learning the command Mark, getting used to the gun, not paying attention to the gunner, completing a retrieve further than you can throw it, picking up the dummy and bringing it back, etc. Letting the 16 week old pupy have fun.

    Hi carl, your exactly right, it isn’t an exercise in discipline (that comes later)Anyone with a spark of an idea would know that your trying to build the puppies speed, marking ability, confidence, enthusiasm and it’s natural instincts to retrieve.
    Many dogs that come to me for training have had their spirits broken and their puppy hood ruined because of owners that think and make remarks as dum as the ones that you’ve just received.

    When training my puppy (not just “mark” but in general like down, sit) should I use a treat? It seems like when I use a treat, she will only do it if I have a treat.

    What a way to get the puppy to not want to deliver to the hand. Nice video besides that.

    It’s really impressive at that age that he’s picking up and coming straight back, but getting him to sit when he gets back would probably be better for him than the grabbing him (I know he’s only 16 weeks, but still…)- like the comment below says it’s hardly going to encourage him to deliver to hand…
