BB8 is sooo cute!
I know but the name tho…
wow Zak! you are really good at training dogs. you just earned a new subscriber
he is really is good!
sorry meant he really is good
I like how you are applying the techniques in the video. You used positive reinforcement/ praise by complimenting him and then you gave him a treat by subscribing.
@M’n’ Conquer especially for breeds like german shepherds positive reinforcement is good
But he doesn’t show us to teach the dog to attack.
This dog is honestly so cute.
Shannon Tara he looks angry
Ever Eva lmfao xd xd
Which dog is not cute???
@Eva Jones by now he would be a huge dog
Teaching heel to small dogs is really tough on your back!
It’s working when he was young and hungry for a short walk like 30 metres. If walking long distance like 3 kms there will be very tough to make him heel all the time that against his nature. Of course that depends on the breed. To ensure him eat kibbles i had to minimize the amount of treats. Very hard effort. It works I mean but don’t expect dogs heel all the time unless they are old enough 🤣
@Laura Bisbjerg I see.
I’m trying to teach my five pound puppy this it’s so hard lol
Is that a lord of the rings collar on BB-8? hahaha awesome
Now I have to buy a star wars collar for my dog Gimli
BB8 OR BBC
Riiiight!? I need one!
Does anyone know where I can buy those collars?
Look at how focused he is! He is way too adorable.
These videos are always so amazing and well edited, you honestly deserve so much more fame
I teach my cat, the tricks you show us. She learns very fast, she learned to high-five in 2 minutes
You can teach a cat to do anything that it wanted to do already
Same I learned her so much things coz I didn’t have a dog at that time but she got lost 2 months ago 😔
@Angel G Derp.
My cat learned how to shake, down, roll over quickly.
“If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and man.”
bb8 is easily one of the cutest dogs i’ve ever seen
THE ONE DOG TO RULE THEM ALL!!!
love the collar
3:41 be sure to reset your dog daily.
3:41 Be sure to reset your WiFi is connection is slow
I can feel the sharp puppy teeth on my fingers as he rewards BB8
you should do some real time training videos to see how long it actually takes to make the progress your looking for. Great vids tho amazing training
Haha the videos would be months long! Training takes time and repetition
Is BB hungry? No, BB8
I feel real pain.
@AstraG ProjectMax hahaha
How did he get BB8’s complete and utter attention omfg this guy is truly a dog in human form
I love how you mentioned that dogs can heel on the right or the left. Some people/trainers are soooo strict about it being on the left. I’m left handed, so personally I prefer my service dog in training to heel on my right to leave my left hand open and free. Even if some people don’t see it as a “proper” heel.
withUonPlanetE I’m not concerned about us being “proper” as service dogs don’t need to meet show dog standards. And for us “heel” and “close” are two different commands so I can’t use them interchangeably.
For us, heel is just behind my leg.
Close is a tuck against my leg with a bent body (in situations where my dog needs to get out of the way of others) Close is very uncomfortable to stay in for long and isn’t very practical when walking as we’d step all over each other 😂 We only use it when people are passing with shopping carts.
Same,I’m left handed and its better that way
I’m right handed but now it’s just habit to walk on my right because he is a STRONG puller and I’ve decided to really try and work on it with him, he’s showing so much progress in other things though! Recall, hold, sit, lay down, I got him to lay down when he was all gussied up!(ISNT social, but my dad and I are talking about it and ways to overcome it!(note. My mom died after 5 months of having him so we were grieving and you know how people love to ask you and try you comfort you and all that bleehhhh, so we stayed home… ALOT.. and (I hated him) so he didn’t get socialized properly. But now I realized what happened wasn’t his fault, so I learned to love him, fake it till you make it! You know the saying!) I’m also teaching him in between(go in between my legs) so that if any thing goes wrong I can calm him down with that(hopefully),
Or you can have thoes leash that connects to your pants i think its called free hand leash
@ღคหgεł¡тσ кuหღ Yeah I had one of those. My dog pulled my pants down in Walmart 😂
How do I get my dog to heel without always needing treats 😅
I would suggest slowly fading them out. Sometimes give one sometimes don’t. I’m no pro tho so maybe do some research on your own
I never taught my pup to heal . I just trained him to stay beside me at all times on leash/in public because is a Lab, Great Dane mix and is going to be huge. Its just easier to train them to walk beside you in the first place, in my opinion.
Teaching an AKK to heel is pretty impressive. Keeping them focused on YOU is so challenging. I’ve had two that were hopeless pullers, but now I have a 16 week old red and white that I am really working with to be more polite on leash…. Also, his name is Mr. Peregrin Took (aka Pippin), soooooo Imma need that collar immediately if not sooner.
