If you’re always looking for tips and strategies for dog training, here’s another book you might consider reading: 21 Days to the Perfect Dog by Karen Wild.
Wild has a nice introduction and evaluation section before you begin any training. The second section, Wild provides a 21 window for training your puppy/dog to sit, stay, roll over, ring the bell, getting off the sofa/bed, and other useful activities to stimulate your dog.
Of course, not all dogs learn the same or will manage to do the tricks presented in the book. I suggest to take your time and repeat, repeat, repeat! Practice will help your dog retain the information of what’s expected in a respectful, positive, fair, and fun atmosphere. The goal is mastery and not accomplishing each task in a short time.
Wild also adds a third section I find very helpful. Here, she provides some solutions to help your dog avoid behaviors such as excessive barking and digging. For example, if your puppy is chewing you out of home, then, provide alternative items or toys the dog can chew on. If your dog is easily distracted, make sure you ask them to sit and stay and watch you before giving another command.
Teach your puppy to greet used to grooming and trimming of nails by touching those areas every day, then, moving on to trimming one nail a day until you can do all in one day.
