Dog training techniques

Well our Siberian Husky is 8 1/2 weeks old now. I've been working with her to sit for a few days now. She is doing average on learning that. She does a good job on not going to the bathroom on the floor. Although, she likes to poo on the floor after we go to work. She pees on her potty pad most of the time. I'd like to teach her how to do these things.

1. Sit
2. Lay
3. get down
4. not run off
5. Get me a beer (jk, a buddies dog (black lab) has learned how to do that.)

stuff like that. I had to give her a spankin earlier for not coming to me when I called her. What are some good techniques to get her to learn these?

Potty training.

Far as the potty training crate training works the best. Most of my labs were pretty much potty trained by 12 weeks or so. Put them in the crate when gone/etc. then take them out side first thing after letting out. Works usually in a couple of weeks don't use to big of crate though as they don't like to potty then lay in it...it works if you stick to it.
Sit is easy just push his back end down it should take him a couple of weeks to get it down but some puppies sometimes take longer to get it also. At 8 weeks I wouldn't expect perfection. One thing at a time is my recommendation especially with a young puppy. If all else fails get a Lab....lol.

Don't spank her. I'm not one of those "Don't beat a dog" nazis, but at 8 1/2 weeks, her not coming when she's called is to be expected. Negative reinforcement in that way can do more harm than good.

I recommend the dog whisperer technique. It sounds stupid and new-agey, and maybe it is, but it totally works.

What he said.

Also, spend some money and take him to obedience school.

Sit and stay are easy. After that, good luck.

If you swat her after giving her the command to come, she will associate beating with that word and you will NEVER get her to come to you.

Puppy classes are GREAT. Talk with your vet or other dog owners as to where is a good place to take your pup for training classes.

Did you have a treat when you called her? Treats are essential to puppy training. Even after your pooch is 5 years old, they need to be treated like they're still pups; they LOVE being obedient and making their Master happy.

NEVER abuse your pooch.

on a quasi serious note, though, here's a good video for dog training.

I don't recommend training with treats. I recommend training with praise and affection. After having owned and self-trained 3 dogs in my short 26 years, hands-down praise is the most effective and easiest way to do it. Treats are bad because they know when you don't have one and they won't respond unless you get one.

Huskies are notorious for wandering and running off, so you definitely want to work out the come command. Definitely DO NOT spank her for not coming.

I've heard really, really good things about the Monks of New Skete books. Here's an Amazon page.

Work the training with treats that the dog likes. I'm sure that you can find some techniques on the internet.

I found that repetitive commands and treats give the dog a reason to preform. At the same time you give the treats give the dog praise for doing the task. Repeat, repeat, repeat!

The dog obedience school recommendation is the best one on the board. You will find that you learn the hand signals for what you want the dog to do as well as how to use a pinch collar to control them as they get bigger. Some people think the pinch collar is over the top, but I found them to be very useful in the training phase of school as well as being a good control mechanism when the dog is attacked by other dogs when walking. I own big dogs and the smaller dogs will attack. I use pepper spray to keep them away. I'm not worried about my dog getting hurt but I am worried about my wife or me getting hurt from our dogs dragging us along behind them as they chase down the other dogs.

off,out,down & come are the only commands you should screw w/ till the dog is 5-6 months old.
other than that just let them be a puppy. relax and youll both be much happier in the long run


monks of new skete 'the art of raising a puppy' is a must own.

pump the vet for info. if he is a good vet he will be more than happy to answer all your questions. if not find another vet.
also id suggest a vet that has been out of school less than ten years.
