Hi, this is Victoria Warfel, with Dream Dogz Training, located in Gainesville, Florida, here to talk about how to train your one year old dog at home. The easiest way to do this, is sit to say please. Most dogs know how to sit, that's one of the first things that my clients teach their dogs, even before they come to me. So, have your dog sit for all things. If he wants to play with you, have him sit first. If he wants to eat, have him sit first. He wants to go outside for a walk, have him sit first. He wants a belly rub, have him sit first. And, as he learns more things, you can have him do the other. So, if your dog knows "Spin", have him spin. "Down", have him down. Make a list of what you want your dog to know. Some people don't care if their dog walks nicely, you know, at perfect heel position. Some people are real happy if their dog just walks without pulling them down the street. Same with sit and down. Does your dog need both? So, make a list of what's important for you. So, them whenever you sit down for training, you have something as a reference, and it's not, "I don't know what I'm going to teach today." Keep it fun, keep notes on your progress, be consistent. And, the easiest way to train is to incorporate it into your daily life. So, if you can train three to five times a day, five to ten minutes each, that's what most dogs do best with.
