Video clips!

** Please let me know if you are not able to view clips.**

There are two ways to view them. Left click on the clip and wait for it to load. Sometimes is takes a few minutes even after it says "done" on your bottom tool bar.
or right click and save it to a folder on your computer.

Clicker training has begun!!!
The pups are now 5 weeks old an we have started their official training.

Here is a brief explanation of what clicker training is.

A clicker is a small plastic and metal box that you hold in your hand and when you press the metal part, it makes a "Clicking" sound.
The first step is to simply "Click" and give the pup a tiny piece of food. (The pup or dog needs to be hungry before you train.)
This is called "Charging the clicker." You know the clicker is charged when you "click" and the pup snaps it's head around expecting the reward.
When you have reached that stage in training, you take it one step further by not clicking UNTIL the pup does something that you want to teach it like coming to you, sitting, laying down, or any number of cute tricks.
You pick one behavior and allow the pup to learn exactly what it is and then add the words that "cue" the pup to do the action. That is an important point in clicker training--you add the word/cue/command AFTER the behavior is "formed" the way you want it. As an example, when teaching the pup the cue word for down. If you have clicked for the pup laying down with it's body only part way on the floor and add the cue at that point, you will end up teaching the pup that Down means to lay part way down. In order to give the pup a clear understanding of what you are wanting it to do, wait until the behavior is exactly the way you want it BEFORE you NAME the behavior!
I will explain more about clicker training as this litter of pups progress.

In these clips you will see two people. I have the camera filming and the other person is John, my new training assistant. John is 15 years old and has taken to clicker training like a Border Collie to sheep! :-D
I sent him home the first day with my clicker training video and he said he took 6 pages of notes!
The first behavior I train the pups is to Come when called. It's much easier with two people.
The pup learns to come to the verbal cue, rather than from a reaction to your movement.
Please feel free to ask question about what we are doing in the clips.
