Avoid Puppy Training Problems - Take This Action First

No matter how hard you try, you cannot train a puppy unless you get his attention first.

How Do You Get A Dog's Attention?
Try screaming at the top of your voice. That'll work a few times. OR you can save your voice and try the "Watch Me" command.

Have you ever seen a dog trainer like Victoria Stilwell use this command?

Follow These Steps
Get the pup to sit. Bring a treat up toward your eyes and say "Watch me".

When the pup makes eye contact (at first he'll look mostly at the treats), give him the treat.

Do it enough times and you'll hold the dog's attention when you say the command.

This simple command will help you avoid puppy training problems if you use it to get your pup's focus on you.

Learn the right way to train your puppy - use the dog training bible, Secrets to Dog Training.
