  • Having your dog on leash is an imperative part of teaching them so that they catch on even faster.

  • Today i'm gonna show you how to get your dog

  • loving leash training with "Flurry", the rescue Lab puppy.

  • Give "Flurry" a thumbs up, make sure you subscribe to my channel and pick up a

  • copy of my book! ...No, this is not a chew toy.

  • You can get it (the book) in written or

  • audio form. I'm real excited to be using Merrick's backcountry real salmon jerky treats in today's lesson

  • these are some of the best dog training treats that you could use.

  • The number one ingredient is salmon. That definitely smells like salmon.

  • If you want a high-value currency, you can't go wrong with these.

  • When using a really good quality treat,

  • you want to make sure that you're using real small pieces of something that's soft and tastes really good and

  • smells really good to your dog. Just this one strip right here,

  • you could do so much training you can also get Merrick's backcountry raw infused dog food.

  • Listen to these ingredients: deboned beef, lamb meal, salmon, then sweet potatoes, then I guess normal potatoes.

  • Boy. He likes this stuff how many brands

  • do you know that actually have real pieces of freeze-dried meat? And that's real meat in the dog food itself

  • It's a really top-notch dog food

  • This food is so high-quality that I'm gonna use it along with these salmon treats today in our lesson. They also have grain free stews, too.

  • We got green beans - look at all that meat.

  • I see some carrots in there, so much good stuff, and you know Merrick's got your cat covered, too.

  • You can get Marik's backcountry line on Petflow. You can set it up for auto-ship as usual.

  • I'm gonna have a great discount and a link in the description.

  • The leash is for far more than just walking your dog.

  • It is the absolute best way to control where your dog can and can't go during that first year of training even

  • indoors. Young dogs like Flurry who are just a few weeks old tend to stay really near their people, so many

  • mistakenly try to bypass leash training because they just conclude, "hey, my dog is pretty good off leash

  • and I don't really need a leash".

  • But as your dog gets older, bad habits begin to emerge slowly at first and then tend to get out of control. Now,

  • let's make sure that Flurry is doing well on leash while in this easy setting first, and

  • then we'll go outside and see how things go. Flurry, this is leash biting

  • not leash walking.

  • So many puppies love to bite on their leash. If your dog does that, first make sure you're using a good treat.

  • And, we're just simply gonna get his attention on this treat, instead of yanking the leash out of his mouth. Look at that!

  • We just taught him to think from the inside-outward, without forcing him to do something. And just be real consistent,

  • they're gonna do that for the first few weeks of training come on. Let's go walk. Let's walk here, good.

  • Come on. Yeah nice work, and I'm gonna reward really liberally here and give them lots of tiny treats

  • Let's try one of those freeze-dried bits. It's there. Oh, that's good, isn't it? You love those. Let's walk here.

  • Good job. And look, you can see how he's paying attention to me - wherever I go, he's going.

  • I'd like to make sure that I can get Flurry's attention on me as well. Hey, up here Flurry. See that

  • Yes, that's very good.

  • Traditionally, leash training has been all about popping the leash and creating an

  • unpleasant consequence when your dog doesn't behave ideally on leash. That's something we really need to get past, though.

  • And we really want to motivate our dogs to want to do something rather than correcting them for doing things

  • we don't like. That'll make training a lot more enjoyable and your dog will progress a lot faster.

  • I'm so proud of you.

  • So, we're gonna go into the real world now and see if we can make this lesson a little bit more challenging, because, hey - if

  • your dog won't listen to you when they're distracted,

  • well that means your training isn't done yet. Of course, if you've got a young dog, make sure your puppy is appropriately vaccinated before

  • taking them in public. There's a distinction between a training walk and a real walk.

  • See, a training walk has no real destination.

  • The entire objective is simply to get your dog paying attention to you while you're on the other end of the leash. When you're leash

  • training in a new environment for a young puppy you must be tolerant of them being distracted.

  • It's just all part of being a puppy. I'm just gonna change directions really often over here.

  • Just to keep them guessing and paying attention to me. Now

  • I'm gonna see if I can get him to look up at me here here. Here we go. Come on. There's those eyes.

  • I love it. Here you go buddy. Flurry is freezing up a little bit.

  • He doesn't want to walk with me.

  • But that could mean a couple of things. It could mean, hey, they're sincerely nervous. Or, he could be saying, "I want to go this

  • way, I don't want to go back that way".

  • So, I'm gonna try and get peppier to get his attention on me cause, you know, dogs like it when we're fun.

  • And he's biting on the leash. I don't care about that right now. I'm just happy walking more enthusiastically. Good!

  • How about this way, let's go on the grass. The beauty of training walks

  • is that when you see

  • distractions like giant exotic birds

  • everywhere, you can use that as an opportunity to do some training with them and get them to listen to you

  • around these distractions. The last thing you want to do is be on a normal walk and encounter something that your dog has never seen

  • before when you're in a hurry, because you don't have time to teach them in that situation.

  • So, here we have the benefit of having nature,

  • we have geese and all sorts of crazy birds, so I'm going to walk around right here. All right!

  • Yeah, that's a good dog. Come on.

  • Yes good job! And so I'm just getting them in the habit of paying attention to me while around all these birds.

  • But of course, when you're walking with your dog you can't just

  • walk around in circles all the time saying, "hey, look at me,

  • look at me!" You eventually want them to walk on a straight line like a civilized Labrador. We're walking in a straight line,

  • now I'm going to turn around. I'm going to try and make a straight line this way. Let's go Flurry, come on, look at that.

  • I mean hey, this is starting to look like a real walk right here.

  • It's not just about giving your dog a treat every time they do something good let them know,

  • sincerely, with heartfelt appreciation

  • how much you

  • appreciate that they're trying. That's what you want out of a leash training session with your dog. Leash training is way trickier than a lot

  • of people realize. See, when you have a young puppy like Flurry,

  • they're gonna grow so rapidly.

  • Their legs are gonna get longer, their muscles are gonna get stronger and their natural pace is just gonna increase. And they just have no

  • idea that they're walking faster than you.

  • So, you'll need to be very tolerant and very vigilant throughout their first many months of leash training. If your dog is

  • particularly rambunctious when you're trying to do a leash training session, that almost certainly means you need to do some exercise with your dog before

  • leash training. Now, I know it might seem normal -

  • "Hey, I'm taking my dog on a walk to get their energy out".

  • But with real high-energy dogs, fetch is generally the best way to

  • exercise them, so if your dog doesn't yet know fetch, that time should be dedicated to teaching them fetch.

  • If you've got a new puppy,

  • and you want to continue to see great dog training content, consider becoming a supporter on my Patreon campaign. That link will be in the

  • description. Oh, now that's my currency: puppy kisses! I love it.

  • Click thumbs up if you think Flurry did a great job today. Make sure you're subscribed to my channel.

  • Set automatic Merrick food delivery at Petflow, too - it'll make your life way easier.

  • the Merrick Back Country Line is

  • amazing as you saw in today's video. Pick up a copy of my book, Dog Training

  • Revolution. Those links will be in the description. Good job Flurry, you did good!
