What is up youtube Andy kruger here Dog trainer extraordinaire i got the Most awesome puppy alive with me This is knox hi buddy Four months old Four months old and ready to go today’s Video is quick but it’s super important Puppy training 101 Building engagement Andy what the heck does that mean what’s Engagement how do i build it instead of Yapping my trap here for an hour i’m Gonna show you i’m gonna show you what Building engagement’s like knox is a Board and train he just got dropped off A few days ago i’ve done a little bit of Training with him but not a ton he’s Settling in but i’m going to show you One of the first sessions i would do With any puppy or dog for that matter to Build engagement Mr cameraman Count 30 seconds tell me when 30 seconds Has gone by all right And so see the puppy Well yeah not now he looks just kind of Wandering around at the end of the leash Sniffing the ground 30 seconds building Engagement i’ll show you what it looks Like and go His kibble Is in my treat pouch both pockets both Hands
Time 30 quick seconds you guys are probably Andy are you joking me with that 30 seconds just as an example the puppy Was focused on me For the entire 30 seconds the puppy was Enthusiastically Running towards me for 30 straight Seconds the puppy was Very excited taking and eating the food Out of both of my hands for 30 seconds Straight so of course i’m gonna go a Little longer than 30 seconds but at the Bare Minimum Baseline level This is what engagement is it’s a period Of time where the dog’s sole focus Is on you their enthusiasm is directed Towards you their eyeballs are on you That’s what engagement is and if you Don’t have that you’re gonna have a Really hard time training your dog if You don’t have that engagement you’re Going to have to rely on tools like a Prong collar like an e-collar and then When you don’t have those tools you’re Going to be screwed and we don’t want That so no matter the age it can be Eight weeks old it can be 10 years old You build engagement and if the puppy’s Not hungry you’ve over fed the puppy the Puppy has a medical issue the puppy Needs to be hungry in order to train
Can’t get engagement if you don’t have a Motivated dog Okay here we go another 30. let’s do it Ready bud Are you ready bud oh yeah Good job Ah This should be the best part of the Puppy’s day and guess what after this Session’s over i’m not just gonna go Unleash him in my house and let him free Roam around for hours he’s going right Into his crate after this because i’m Gonna undo all the good work all the Good engagement work i do in this Session by just letting him wander Around the house and do whatever he Wants chew on stuff have accidents Develop bad habits build the puppy don’t Try to stop the puppy Build the puppy don’t try to stop the Puppy don’t facilitate situations where They’re set up for failure Nice boy boom Switch Yeah There it is There it is Nice job bud And then i end it could i keep going i Probably could is it always a good idea To work the puppy to exhaustion heck no It’s not i got a solid couple minutes of A really good interaction and i’m gonna
