Puppy Basics with a Shelter Puppy

I’ve trained so many puppies, including my own. There are several videos available on YouTube on my puppy training, but I’ve never done this before – training a shelter puppy in a complete run-through of the basics. Honestly, I never thought of it until last month when I was at the shelter teaching my Bound Angels University. Pete brought out these two adorable puppies and said, “What do you think we should teach these guys before they get adopted?” What you see in this and a couple more videos (yet to come) is what I recommended.

Training a shelter puppy, in the shelter, is no easy task. There are so many distractions: sounds, smells and sights… Pulling off this training with this puppy was quite a task and I figure, if you can see me doing it with this puppy, you can do it with your puppy.

If you’re spending half the training session chasing the puppy around – you’re failing your puppy. I always recommend a puppy wear a long line and collar.
