Yes, 30 seconds. Bear with me for a moment, and I'll explain. :)
Some people think that obedience training is the key to making a puppy well-behaved. They hope that by taking their puppy to a one-hour obedience class every week.... and maybe spending another hour each night practicing the commands, their puppy will be well-behaved.
But the truth is that very little obedience training needs to be done with a puppy to get him to be well-behaved.
That's right. Very little obedience training.
Keep in mind that I've instructed obedience classes for over 35 years, so I certainly wouldn't say that unless it was true.
The truth is that what a puppy needs most is to be RAISED the right way. Raising a puppy the right way includes some obedience training, yes. But teaching obedience commands like "Sit" or "Stay" only influences about 20% of the way your puppy ends up behaving.
On the other hand, how you live with the puppy around the house every single day influences 80% or more of his behavior.
And that's where the 30 seconds to a calm, polite, well-behaved puppy comes in!
Respect Training for Puppies: 30 Seconds to a Calm, Polite, Well-Behaved Puppy is a BALANCED training method that includes positive reinforcement for good behavior, plus corrections for unwanted behavior.
I will show you which behaviors you should expect your puppy to do – and how to teach those behaviors and make sure that he does them.... every time.
I'll show you which behaviors you should stop your puppy from doing – and how to stop him.
Everything your puppy needs to know to be a top-notch canine citizen is included!
Puppies learn best in quick 30-second bursts. I’ll show you how to use those “teachable moments” to teach your puppy calmness, gentleness, and good manners. Respect training for puppies is more than a few obedience commands. Your puppy will learn to be polite and respectful–the attentive, well-behaved companion you’ve always wanted.
