New member & new staffy owner

Post by bella's mum on Sun Dec 27 2015, 15:30

Hi everyone!

Introducing myself - my name is Carolanne. Our wee staffy pup is Bella & she is now 14 weeks old ( we got her at 8 weeks). Life has been turned upside down as she has totally taken over the house - cant remember what we both done before her lol Her training has been going great so far and she is so sociable & friendly. At the moment trying to teach her recall as she can get distracted if people or dogs go past and she is off!! Husband is actually away to the petshop now to buy a clicker to see if this helps with recall training - fingers crossed!

Hi from me and mine!

Have a look at my favourite puppy training videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0C724F6F6A597540

There's all sorts of fab stuff in there, including recall. Have fun!

Yes we have got off to a great start with her - she can sit, stay, lie down, paw & hi 5 lol she is also now off puppy pads & goes to the door if she needs out before her walks.

Thanks Elise-R i will go have a look at that youtube video and get started on her clicker training. She has been a quick learner with everything so far so hopefully she gets the hang of it & we dont need to worry about her running off when she is off lad as she loves exploring outside!

Isn't it great how quickly they learn especially letting you know when they need to go out Big Grin

Wow she's so smart! Good luck with the clicker training! Smile

When she's off lead try the 'hide and seek' game, when she's not paying attention go hide and let her find you, she'll soon learn to keep an eye on you to prevent you from disappearing Laughing
