Thread: Help! Puppy Training

    Cool Help! Puppy Training

    I have a female 8 month old border collie X Lab. She doesnt go to puppy school and i want to know some ways to teach her to drop a ball after i have thrown it to her. We have another family dog and i think my dog gets jelous of the other dog and is constintly stealing the ball and not giving it back. I also have trouble teaching her how to come, sit, and not jumping up at people in excitement.

    Hi Dogz Rule,

    Have you considered training for her? You have a lovely large breed mix....she will naturaly be quite an active girl, training will be or enormous benefit for you both.

    It will be important she is exercised and stimulated mentaly. This is very much needed for a happy well adjusted dog. There are lots of ways you can do this.

    Training also offers socialisation with other dogs and people, which is another very healthy and important aspect of dog ownership.

    Have you checked out the pinned (sticky) puppy development calender in the puppy section? Fantastic advice there!

    I would love to see some pic's!!

    Cool

    Yeah i have tried training him, he sometimes obeys me when the bigger dogs are not around but hardly ever does when the bigger dogs are playing with him.

    Thanks for the ideas and i will look at that development calendar.

    Thanx Billy

    to train a puppy need a patient and consistently.when you train her, afford to the other dogs not near her to playing.

    example you want to train he to sit, ypu must choose one word to command her to sit maybe "SIT or Stay".

    Take a threat in your hand, you can standing when you train her.place the threat in starting posisition (on your chest).when your dog in standing position, show the threat to him, you can hold the threat to her nose, to make her knew that you hava a prize for her ^^

    Move your hand with the threat back, slowly right above her heads.when she looks the threat, she will follow the threat and eventually sit to look up the threat.don't forget to say the command and giving her a threat when she fully sitting.Remember,,dog only understand one word.so, don't change your command.

    practice will make perfect to train your dog ^^ practice them multiple times, so your dog can remember the command.

    hope it helps you

    I'm not sure if this would work for you but it worked for me, so maybe give it a whurl.

    I throw the ball/toy and my boy runs and grabs it then comes back to me, I distract him slightly and quickly put my hand on the ball in his mouth, I use slight tension and pull the ball out of his mouth and as soon as he lets go I say "DROP". Then it's praising and "goooood boys", then we go again.

    After a while I didn't need to use my hand and "DROP" just works.

    Good luck!

    Okay, but when he has the ball he dosnt come near me, it think its because he feels guilty. This is because when he was a pup he used to steal the ball from the older dogs, when he wasnt allowed to play with it, he now thinks that he is still not allowed to have the ball and tries to avoid me when he has the ball.

    Thanxs for the idea though

    Have you tried a ball on a string perhaps? So you can gently pull him towards you when he's holding it whil telling him to come? Or use a pull toy with a ball on the end to learn that ball games are more fun when he interacts wiith you than on his own.

    yeah i tried that but it just seems to make him more determined to keep it and not give it back
