      Frisbee will only make your dog worse. It will condition your dog to be excited. A good frisbee dog DOES NOT equal an obedient well behaved dog. Look up Don Sullivan Dog training. By the way, thanks to Don all my dogs are fully off leash trained and are my Service dogs. Each have a job. Anyway I hope this helps.

      Dogs Are Awesome I don’t want him to be a dog which sits down when somebody tells him to!
      he’s out of the shelter so he hasn’t really got an “education”.
      He listens to me when I call him tho and all that stuff, that’s enough for me.
      I only want him to stop jumping on me when we are playing and stop him from destroying my Garden. any tips for that?

      Trav Mihelich Sounds like a great way to break a dog’s leg or get injured yourself. You do not need to hurt or frighten or run over your dog to bike with him or her safely. Just teach it what you want to do.

      crosita1 heel is really for hunting dogs. But it is an essential obedience command when accessing tight heavenly traffic areas. So I strongly recommend teach your dog that. Service dog or not.

      crosita1 and by the way, any service SHOULD be trained for basic obedience. It’s poorly behaved dogs that give them a bad wrap

      Dogs Are Awesome Obedience commands, as I said, are helpful for having the dog under handler control. But they are not required. Just control is. I personally find many of them a good metric to know if your dog is ready for public access, but I don’t think people should bring dogs anywhere if they aren’t under control, service dog or pet. I would never use heel with my current service dog–if it is that crowded she’d get stepped on so she wouldn’t go or I would carry her. My larger dog is learning heel. For a limb buffer dog (commonly trained for my condition) or for crowd anxiety, heeling is the opposite of their task so would probably not be worth bothering with–loose leash is legally under control. Usually even a taut leash is legally under control. Service dogs’ training should be as individual​ as their handlers and their handlers’ needs. Not a one fit all situation.

      crosita1 agreed. But the service dog should know the basic regardless. In my personal opinion

    Teaching your dog boundaries please! I don’t have a fence, and cant put one up that’s wooden or wired, but sometimes I only want my dog to go outside alone and go potty. All my neighbors have accomplished this, but I’m not really sure how to d this.

      Dogs Are Awesome yes, because I realized this new method will work as well. How is it your method is the only way, when other methods will get you the same result. So far, I definitely prefer the new method, because my dog and I are perfectly happy.

      Dogs Are Awesome I use it on both my dogs. Scout is scared to be told no. I rarely use it for her because I don’t need to and it is not her favorite. She is trained off leash and on leash using positive methods. Lily is learning to train off leash with the prong and corrections. Not all dogs need it though

    Zak! Just want to thank you sooo much for your videos!! 👏🏻 My husband and I had been talking about getting a puppy for a while and, about a month ago now, saw a post, on one of those animal Facebook groups, about a lady having to get rid of her 6 month old black lab because she would bark all night in the cage and her neighbors called the cops and they gave her 24 hrs to get rid of her or they would take her to a pound . Anyway, this lady fed me all this crap about how the dog, now named Maggy, was potty trained and that she had her since she was 8 weeks old. Well, let me tell ya, the first day we had her, we knew everything the lady told us was a lie!! Maggy wasn’t potty trained, didn’t know how to sit, lye down, and barely looked at us when we talked to her. 😢 But with some patients and hard, steady work, Maggy is starting to learn and YOUR videos have been HUGE help. Though we still have a lot to work on with her, we’re not giving up on her! Please, don’t ever stop making these wonderful, educational, fun vids!! ❤️

      Sounds like clingy puppy. Until she grows out of it practice short tosses and sit-stays where you get farther away from her to build confidence.

    Where I am in Texas, from about 8 AM to 8 PM its 100 Degrees F outside. How can I exercise my Blue Heeler in that heat? She wont even take a step outside because we burn up! I have no shaded areas, Just a long field as a backyard. And it’s almost impossible to fully exercise her indoors, especially if rooms or hallways are small.
    And we have no access to a pool! (She doesn’t like swimming or bathing anyways but I’m trying to make every bath a good experience! She’s doing wonderful but we don’t have a pool or lake here!)
    Anyone, Zak, Anyone! HELP!

      Miawolf16 Jump on your bike, and go for a pedal once it cools down at night, Cattle dogs love to run and learn super easy to stay right with you, off leash, while you’re on your pushie.
      They do though, get bored, very quickly, by being on a treadmill.

      Quick trivia but, Do you know why they get called ‘heelers’?

      Trav Mihelich Yes. They drive cattle. Heelers.
      But I got my Heeler as a gift and now I’m training her to be a Medical Service dog for myself. It is harder for me to exercise her fully due to my Medical reasons and disabilities. The bike riding is a good idea, but not for someone who doesn’t have a bike, skateboard, Roller skates, etc.
      I just found out about flirt poles and how good they are for exercising your dog while sitting down. But it is more of a lure, and I don’t like to teach my heeler to chase things but I guess it’ll have to do.
      If we go too long without doing something, she takes her energy out on the cat or other Puppy. And she becomes too rough with the other puppy and it is starting to get dangerous. As the Heeler keeps growing but the other puppy, Pomeranian and Lhasa Apso mix, is staying small, the Heeler keeps getting stronger and stronger.
      So I really need answers. But for now I’ve just been playing hours and hours of fetch and giving tons of chew toys.

      Trav Mihelich I sit in front of the treadmill with his salmon sausage and we pause once for a bite about halfway through. My guy is more of a sprinter than an endurance runner but if you keep the after-run reward high-value and unique to the treadmill you can get a lot of mileage out of one treat. Like any duration behavior, you just build up gradually. If the dog couldn’t work through boredom you would never get 10-60 minute stays.
