    Default Sound Beginnings with Hillmann Puppy

    I currently have Hillmanns puppy and fetch DVDs. But this is my first lab and first time training. I feel like sound beginnings would help me with some of the socialization and obedience side of things. Has anyone used both together?

    I have been watching them both but will be following Hillmann's for training. I'll use some of Sound Beginnings ideas too. Introducing a lot of different "toys" for the pup to chase around with movement and noise so he will be well exposed at a young age.

    I started my puppy Rowdy on Sound Beginnings, at a certain point switched to Hillman and then later switched to Lardy. Sound Beginnings starts the puppies at a little younger and it will definetly help you. You can do a search for Rowdy (by Pirate) and see some of my Sound Beginnings, by Jackie Mertens, videos. Just a sampling.

    He's 13 weeks old and were on day 4 I believe. I don't really plan on using the actual training from Mertens but some of the ideas that aren't portrayed in hillmann's

    What Wayne said...did the same with my pup. I highly recommend reviewing Wayne's video's of what (and how) he did things with Rowdy...really good stuff there
