    Great videos, just a suggestion. How about McCann logoed vest for training treats,easier and quicker than a pant pocket and you could have them for sale. Iโ€™ll take a medium one.

    At what age can I start training? I have an 8 wk old pup and I have tried basic stuff like sit and she caught on very quickly but stuff like come and wait and lay down and leave it, are much much harder

    Ok maybe this is a silly question, but I do wonder, will there ever be a day that I can expect my puppy to do things without a food reward? Iโ€™m not at all against food rewards, I just want to be prepared ๐Ÿ˜‰

    We rescued two dogs that are at least a year old. My biggest problem is when I take them out they pull so hard on their leash that I am literally running. If they see a squirrel, or another dog I usually end up in a bush or just fall in a yard. I need help so much for this issue. I have loved your videos so much.

    Do you have a tip for stopping my dog thinking me giving them the treat is the release for the training.
    As. Soon as she has the treat she is moving about
    She is very young only 12weeks
    But does excellent work with wait and stay.
    Just the release I need help on
    Thanks for your videos some great advise on them

    May I ask your opinion on the utility of โ€œwaitโ€ vs โ€œleave itโ€ commands? It seems like youโ€™d need to use either one or the other in the case of food, but โ€œwaitโ€ can then expand to apply to things like getting out of the car, while โ€œleave itโ€ can expand to things like chasing small critters. Do you feel that โ€œwaitโ€ is more effective/important?

    My puppy is showing signs of food aggression. She was eating the cats food (she's not allowed) and my 9 year old son went to pull her off of the table (her front paws were on there because the food is on a coffee table) and she growled and bit him. She actually wounded him and drew blood. Obviously I was very upset. I had hoped it was a one time thing, but she continues to show signs of aggression while eating. Please help me break her of this horrible habit so my children can enjoy and love their puppy rather than fear her.

    I love your video so much. Can you make videos about "stop your dog barking when you are working". Sometimes I find it difficult to study as my dog keeps barking and biting on my dress. Thank you a lot. ๐Ÿ’•

    Both of my dogs know the "wait" command pretty well, especially my 7 month old puppy. I started teaching them wait pretty much as soon as they came home. I use wait for waiting for food, waiting to go out(or in) the door, out or into the car, wait to come out of the kennel, wait to got greet someone new or another dog, wait to take the treat from my hand, etc. I even use wait as a stay command sometimes! I think teaching "wait" to a dog is very useful!

    Both of my pups have known wait since they were about 4mo old. Such a critical skill to learn, if nothing else just working in door manners with the "wait" command will get them to start understanding wait in other places. I think so many people are more prone to "communicate" to their dogs through the leash or just say No and pointing to what they want. If you talk to your dog, they will start to understand what it is you are asking them to do, they are smart little animals.

    What do you do for when you leave the house if you let your dog stay outside of a crate? A lot of the time I find telling him to wait while I'm trying to get out the door, but that waters down the "wait" command because he's never released. Same thing if you tried using stay, there's never a release so it loses value of the dog actually staying in the stay till released.

    Enjoyed the video as always ๐Ÿ™‚
