does the club have training days or get togethers? I am asking becaulse I have a 14 week pup that I have been training using the Water Dog book, he is doing prety good (I think)he sits every time with voice or wistle, except during feeding time then hes to excited. It's kind of hard with the book becaulse I cant see excatly what he should be doing and how well he should be doing it. yesterday I started working on stay a little.
thanks for all the info and help. Ken
After reading this I understand where your at and need guidance with getting started doing the right things with your puppy. These club training days if and when they happen will not be enough and you will learn too little too late. They are however a great place to meet people and find out who's who in the area.
First best to find a mentor near by who is experienced and you can hang out with them often for training.
Right now I would go to ybsmedia.com and purchase the puppy DVD Sound Beginnings by Jackie Mertens. This will help you Right Now and for several months. If you were more experienced Bill Hillmans puppy training videos would be good as well. You would still benefit for them but for a newbe I would get puppy going and you started with Sound Beginnings, find a mentor or good private training group then absorb Mr Hillman.
Oh and PS
With a baby puppy you want them to Go! Stay can wait a little while.
