Training Tips

  • Be consistent
  • Be patient
  • Be concise - don't overload him with too many words per command
  • Don't overuse his name
  • Your tone of voice is really important
  • Don't scold him for not doing/doing something he hasn't yet learned to do/not to do
  • Timing's everything for praise and titbits. Don't dish them out like confetti - it won't mean anything otherwise
  • Don't keep calling him if he doesn't come - go and get him. You will only teach him to ignore the recallĀ
