  1. Another great video!! Do you have any tips for training fetch? My 7 month old puppy will go and grab the toy I throw and then run just out of reach of me. He is trying to get me to chance him :/

    1. Are you using treats? I would use treats to try to get him to come to you, not just out of reach. I would also get down to his level, like a sit or squat. Also tons and tons of praise when he does actually get the toy close to you. Also would start training him to drop it. Hope this helps! 😊

    2. My pup used to do this so I would call him back once he had the ball, then give him at treat. That helped with both getting him to come back with the ball and dropping it. Start inside and just throw it a short way, and go from there.

  2. Veronica got such long hair, she’s beautiful! Love your Videos, I just got a puppy and now we profit so much from your tipps! Thank you so much!

  3. Thanks for taking us with you to the protest. It’s great to see how you’re training Veronica in that environment. And I love seeing you and Bree speak out about the injustices.

    I’ve been a fan for years, but I haven’t missed a video or post since you posted a few months ago saying you were standing up, even though you could lose viewers. My engagement has never been higher with your channel. 💖

  4. Veronica has came such a long way! Love this series! (I love all your series. Lol) it’s been great watching everyone grow in their own ways! 😊🐾

  5. Previous pooch, a Standard Poodle, was 4 months old the first time we encountered a moose with calf at around 30 – 40 m distance, so i sat down with him calmed between my legs. We sat there until they walked away, result being that every time he encountered any medium to large animal, he kept by my side. The closest we ever got to moose was 2 m, a mother and 2 almost fully grown calves cutting us off. He maintained his calm and we weren’t perceived as a threat.

  6. I remember, in one of your past training series, the dog jumped off the balcony! Does anybody remember which dog did that? I can imagine how scary that must have been for Zak and Bree.

    Awe… They’re both doing so well. I just love Inertia and Veronica. You all are so lucky to have each other. Such a beautiful, fun-spirited family.

    1. @Zak George’s Dog Training Revolution Oh yeah! I remember Chop. You actually got him from an Alaska rescue and set him up for a great future his first family, if my memory serves me. That was a great series. I have to say, I still think George is my favorite; but they’re all great. Thanks for the reminder.

  7. Thank you so much for highlighting and advocating for such an important issue that others would be afraid to out about. And it is done so cleverly in the context of training. As a woman, i can say it truly means a lot. Y’all are truly the best! Grateful to have found this channel. ❤

    1. Yes, I am happy to see others standing up for what I consider a very important social issue. My husband and I attended our local protest, although we left our dogs at home.

  8. I was happy to see how you handled taking a “relatively” untrained dog (Veronica is very well trained for her age, just isn’t old enough to be “thoroughly” trained like Inertia is) into a large crowd. We have wanted to do this with our dogs but had avoided doing it. Now you’ve given me the push I needed to do it, although we’ll have to wait a little while. Brought home a 10-week-old pupster last Sunday, so he’s learning the ropes, learning to sit, touch, watch me, and “release” (as well as waiting nicely for treats and sharing with his brother and sister and not trying to grab them all for himself). He’s wreaking havoc until he’s asleep (and then he’s an angel). But we already love him to death. Welcome home, Bliss.

  9. When Jasper was 2, I wished for a challenge and Bryn turned up in my life. She was a resource guarder (everything toys and food) and Jasper got attacked a lot so we taught Bryn a new game called Sharing. There were so many treats that the dogs got fat for a while.
    Bryn turned into the most delightful kind dog, a lot like Inertia!

  10. They both were like children , waiting at the window for their parents to come home and having a dialogue about their parents having been out without them .🥰😄

  11. Thanks for joining in the protest! Glad to see people stand up. Love your dogs too, and the gentle approach to training. It’s helping with my over-exuberant LabraDoodle.

  12. Great content. I have been following your strategies to train our 15 week old French Bulldog pup, but he’s not just clever, he’s super clever and seems to deliberately do the “naughty” behaviour on purpose because he knows when he gets corrected he gets treats! Any advice?
