    Consider simply saying “sit” without preceding it with their name. In other word, do not say their name in conjunction to the command. Also try not to speak at all when rewarding a dog with a treat because just as you pointed out, a dog should not always require the treat or praise with the exception of periodic/annual reinforcement. *_GREAT VIDEOS!_*

    1. I think using the dogs name helps the name become a buzzword that marks attention for the dog. You just have to use the name with all tricks. Then do the tricks without the name to separate it. Teaching a dog its name is important.

  2. OMG, thank you for your help.
    These videos are truly stunning. you’re helping everybody to be their own dogs trainers.
    bless you.

  3. Thank you so much! I definitely need this! My German Shepard just had 8 puppies a couple days ago, so now I will be prepared to train them when the time comes.

  4. Thank you!! This worked with our new dog!! It made a difference too to be standing and ask and not kneeling at his level (he would just back up). I’ll definitely be watching the rest of the videos to keep working with him.

  5. Your training videos are excellent! I’ll be working with dogs in the near future, so your videos will be of great help.

    1. @Ar Sh
      She’s grown up to be an excellent dog, the best trained dog I’ve ever had, she runs to me on command, doesn’t jump up on us, want take food until we tell her. Best dog we ever had. We watched these videos, cesar milan and stoney ridge I believe. Thanks for asking about her

  6. absolutely amazing video! very interesting and helpful, hopefully ill be able to teach my future gsd using these skills 🙂

  7. This was so helpful, I was able to teach my 2 months old puppy everything you did very easily and quickly, thanks a lot.

  8. Just got my GSD (8 weeks old) 2 days ago and these videos are so awesome and are helping me easily teach him obedience. Thank you.
