German Shepherd Puppy Training Tips

hey what's up everyone in this video I'm

going to be giving you some tips on

training and raising a German Shepherd

puppy or really any other puppy for that

matter okay let's get started

one thing that you should be doing is

playing and interacting with your puppy

in a constructive way and one of the

best ways to do this is through games so

a few of the games that I generally

recommend playing is tug-of-war playing

fetch with the ball or maybe plant some

scent or nose work games with your

puppies you don't want to just expect

your puppy to be out in the backyard

entertaining themselves are only playing

with other dogs really crucial that your

puppy learns that you are a source of

fun so one thing that we could do a

little tougher here I like to play

teaching us cuffing to buy and play with

the tug and if you for most companion

dog honors I generally recommend tying a

tug toy on a string so that you can

control the tongue to even animate it

like this also keeps it away from your

hand with most puppies especially German

Shepherd puppies they like to bite on

things and it's really impossible to

teach your puppy you're not to fly on

things but you can teach them what is

appropriate to bite on and what is

inappropriate to bite on such as your

arms and your fingers so clubs with your

puppy can be really beneficial on

teaching them what you want them to bite

on and what you don't so hug is a great

game just you want to make sure that

your puppies will release it when you

ask them to or you can be playing with

balls and other games tip number two

implement management protocols so it's

really important that we are able to

either supervisor puppies at all times

or we confine them to a crate or

possibly an exercise bin the last thing

that you want to do with young puppies

allow them to free-range in your house

unsupervised because I guarantee you

they're probably going to get into

trouble alright they're either going to

be chewing on something that you don't

want them to chew on possibly jumping up

on counters or if you're in the early

house train prop house training stage

they're going to be peeing or pooping

inside the home so it's really crucial

that you are able to supervise them and

when the best way to supervise them is

the use of a tether so here I just have

a piece of coated wire which you can

pick up at a hardware store I'm gonna

hook the puppy onto the coated wire hook

it onto the dog's collar give us a puppy

something to do like give a heart to

bone now this would be really easy for

me to supervise her because I know that

she can't wander off of this dog bed

here so if I was wanting to watch TV in

the evening or read something it's going

to be really easy for me to keep an eye

on her

the last thing you want is not knowing

where your puppy is at any given moment

because it's just going to create bad

habits so by telling your dog it makes

it really easy for you to supervise them

when you are not able to directly

supervise your puppy you should be using

that crate so with this puppy here so if

I'm not able to directly supervise the

puppy inside the home it's easy for me

to just put the puppy in a crate that

way I know that she is going to be safe

and not get into any dangerous household

items around the home

puppies are really good at getting into

trouble really quick so you want to make

sure that you have that peace of mind

that if you're going to just take a

shower for a few minutes that you're

able to put your puppy somewhere where

you know they're going to be safe you

can think of your crate as you would a

crib for a toddler just as you would not

let a toddler crawler on your home

supervise it's important that you don't

do the same thing with your puppy so

putting the puppy in a crate that's

going to give you peace of mind if

they're not going to start to develop

bad habits in your home remember you're

raising a puppy you do not have a dog

alright so in time as your dog your

puppy matures you're going to be able to

allow them more privileges and more free

time inside your home next tip start

incorporating your dog's meals with

training so instead of only always

feeding your dog out of their bowl start

putting your dog's kibble on you and

work them through various obedience cues

that are going to be really useful in

the future so you want to be always

practicing building your dog skill set

so I could have some kibble in one of my

pockets here Rotti so I can practice

doing things like come blink all seven

good and I was going to be giving this

away for free if I were going to be

feeding her out of the bowl so

practicing these various obedience cues

are going to really teach her that it's

fun to work with me and you get

something that you want out of it which

is food Roxie good girl down place and

so you can sort off real basic and then

work on advancing those obedience cues

as you progress in your dog's training

okay that's it for this video super

simple but I do see a lot of owners

struggling with a lot of various

behavior issues that could it be easily

resolved by just implementing some of

the tips that I just shared with you if

you have some tips that you feel that

have worked well for you feel free to

share them in the comment section below

and I will see you

in another video proxy
