I recently puppy sat for my friend – I had her dog for eight days.
And if a puppy is in my house, then it’s going to get trained. Either to entertain me or to entertain the puppy. In this case, it was a little of both.
At the request of the Fenzi Dog Sports Academy Alumni list on FaceBook, I recorded, live, half of her training sessions, usually in the morning At the end of each session, I answered their questions.
The end result was eight days of unedited training and question/answer – which I then pulled together into a continuous youtube video for those who are not Fenzi Academy students.
If you’d like to learn about play – here it is.
What you should take from this video – train the dog you have. The puppy I was working with showed all the qualities of an interactive and talented player – I just needed to be available. Maybe with another dog you’d approach it differently, which I discuss at length in these segments. Figuring out what makes sense for your dog is what makes training so very interesting.
Here’s the youtube link to the video:
