George wrote to me with an interesting question about what happens when his dog runs away from him when off leash: Hi Adam: I know it is good to let your dog roam freely on a long line. I have been using an e-collar and a pinch collar (I use the pinch collar at this point only for walking). My question is: if I let my dog roam freely with an e collar instead of a 50 ft long line and my dog decides to run… will an e collar correction make him stop running assuming that happens? “When My Dog Read more [...]
There is a major difference between down stay command and the long down, when you begin to teach your dog to lie down. The down/stay can only be taught after the dog has learned to down on command. How To Teach Your Dog To Lie Down Is Easier Than You Think Teaching your dog to lie down on a voice command can take up to three weeks of working three sessions per day, every day. The dog must be wearing collar and leash when doing this exercise. The long down can be taught in a couple of sessions. Read more [...]
Dear Adam: While working on our dog obedience training, I wanted to make sure I understood how to correct your dog? I’ve tightened the pinch collar to make it fit snugly, but it really doesn’t seem to affect the dog. You said that the ring that the leash or tab is attached to should be down, but it keeps swinging around to the back of the dog’s neck. Can you go over how to correct your dog with the pinch collar, once again? Its almost as if he doesn’t even mind the collar pinching him and Read more [...]
Many dog owners consider the “Go lie down command” as their favorite dog obedience command. The “GO lie down” not only tells the dog to assume a reclining position, it tells him to do it elsewhere. When you are talking on the phone, drinking hot coffee, or working out, “Go lie down” is the command you need to send your overly affectionate dog someplace else. Do not feel guilty if you cannot give attention to him every time he asks you to. If he’s just had his walk, he’s eaten well, you’ve exercised Read more [...]
Training a dog to stand is one of the basic commands that the American Kennel Club (AKC) requires for its Companion Dog degree. It is formally called Stand for Examination and your dog must not move a toe while the judge goes over his body. Is Training A Dog To Stand Even Necessary? At first glance, training a dog to stand does not seem a necessary dog training command for pet dogs. You may, indeed, decide to skip it. But before you do, here’s what you can use it for if you decide to teach it. Read more [...]
Imagine using the right dog training techniques and being able to take your dog with you, anywhere you go… and know that he’ll listen and obey! Imagine being able to take him to a picnic and tell him to lay down… even if there are 30 children running around, dropping pieces of hot dogs and burgers. Using the Right Dog Training Techniques Makes For A Happier Dog Yet your dog is so well trained that he just lays there with a lazy smile on his face! Or perhaps you decide to take your dog with Read more [...]
Kvac wrote to me about how to train a dog to drop the tennis ball. She writes: First, let me say that your books have been very helpful to me and my dogs. I would like your help on a specific problem, although my dog has made great strides with learning the down position and in retrieving– he has for some reason got a problem with wanting to release his ball once he is back to me. And I mean he will not let go for anything. So… how do you train a dog to drop the tennis ball? Any advice? -Kvac Dear Read more [...]
Never give a command that you cannot enforce. Another way of saying that is: Always make sure that you have some way to enforce your commands, until your dog is 100% conditioned. When training new commands–or even enforcing commands that your dog already knows–give the command only once and then make your dog do it. (Just Do It, as Nike says!) I don’t advise repeating a command over and over again. Even for a puppy. Say it once. Don’t get in the habit of issuing double, triple or quadruple Read more [...]
Tanx writes to me about her Mother-in-Law’s slack dog obedience training rules in the house : My family and I want to add our thanks– to all the other thanks you constantly receive. You have produced a dog obedience training book that is SOOO easy to read, understand, follow, and with great analogies. I have read the book front to back. She Used One Of My Dog Obedience Training Tips… The ‘Ol “Tennis Ball On A Rope” Game My concern will pertain to page 141, “Psychological Mistreatment Through Read more [...]
This idea of taking your dog to a dog park is not a good one. Why? Training Your Dog At A Dog Park Is Not A Natural Environment From A Pack Perspective #1) It’s not natural for the dog. We’re not talking about human children who need to be socialized with other kids throughout their infancy. Dogs learn dominant and submissive dog behavior and how to interact with other dogs from 6 to 8 weeks of age. This two week period is called a critical stage, and a small amount of exposure will have a lasting Read more [...]
Brandee N writes: “I bought your book about two weeks ago to learn more dog obedience commands. Finally, someone has written a dog training book that makes sense. Good job… I bet it took a lot of time to put all of it together, huh?” The reason I am writing to you is because I am confused about some things that deal with teaching the down/stay and sit/stay. Tell me if this sounds like I have it right: First, teach her (the dog) how to do the command doing repetitions and placing her in Read more [...]
Ever wonder what dog obedience training commands you should be using with your dog? Teaching your dog to respond to commands achieves three important goals: 1. It helps establish a more balanced relationship between you and your dog. 2. It promotes a vocabulary that your dog understands… a way of communicating with him/her. 3. It is a useful tool for exercising your dog’s mind and body. The following is a list of 11 commonly used dog obedience training voice commands used by Read more [...]

Here’s an example of why a balanced approach to dog training is the best way to go: Because it allows you to use the tool that best fits both your dog’s temperament and the behavior you’re trying to teach. In this video, I’m working on three issues: 1. Getting the dog to come in tighter, for the sit-front. 2. Once he shows me that he’s starting to understand that he should come in tighter– then I start getting a little more demanding by making him line up straighter. 3. Tightening up the heel Read more [...]
Adam shows you how to begin teaching the wrap finish. After watching this, I notice that the dog needs me to go back and spend more time clarifying where the front-sit position and the static-heel position is. I’ll make a video on how I do that, too.
Adam works on the down on recall exercise. After watching this, one of the “take aways” is that I should have done more repetitions where I was standing closer to the place-boardl
Adam demonstrates attention training around distractions — with a hyper boxer puppy as the distraction. A couple of points about this video you wouldn’t know, just by watching it: – The Golden Retriever was a dog we rescued from a veterinarian in Bogota, Colombia. He was so dog aggressive around other dogs (as well as pigeons!) that she couldn’t handle him. She couldn’t even take him for a walk! – The boxer puppy is a dog we have never met before. The Golden Retriever is a bit nervous about Read more [...]
Adam explains attention training a dog around distractions (demonstration in part ii). Attention training is the foundation for all of your dog’s training, both for obedience and for problem solving. Without first getting and keeping your dog’s attention, you’re just talking to a wall. So, in order to make progress with almost any behavior we need to first get at least 51% of your dog’s attention on you rather than anything else he may be trying to focus on. Attention Training A Dog Builds Read more [...]
