Where to go from here 1yr old Dobi
I feel I don't have to necessarily bring the pup to school if I can use this forum and YouTube to learn all what I need to learn to prep my pup for show .
I'm new to the serious side of dog training. I can naturally make them recall, go in cage, go upstairs , wait for eat command, fetch , take it , sit , down, paws from sitting or lying down. But that's about it. I use a mixture of positive and negative reinforcement. As well as non verbal or semi-nonverbal corrections unearned from dog whisperer. .(for those who hate Cesar Milan , don't read too deep into it ) I mix methods and my dog beys me the best and loves me a lot ! I'm on my first Doberman , but I raised a German Shepard, golden retriever, a westie mix rescue and now another westie before. Never did obedience class and all basically act the same in personality. So there must be a nurturing reason behind all this. Thanks in advanced
