What I Trained my Puppy in the FIRST WEEK


I’ve been getting a lot of requests for a video of what I trained Epic in the first week. As I describe in the video what we train each puppy or new adult dog who is added to the family is very different depending on the dogs genetics, personality, what happened to them in the womb and the very important 8 first weeks of their life. I describe what I worked on with my own puppy and then give insights about what generally is a good idea to focus on first with all puppies.

My three main focuses training Epic the Chihuahua puppy were:
1 Building our relationship while training the attention game, attn. noise and recall with Positive Reinforcement

2 Separation training

3 Building her relationship with my other dogs and teaching them to act appropriately together
