  1. That dog is beautiful! New one of yours? What breed?

    I agree with whomever said this is a great mini tutorial, but the 4 dogs in a down stay on the bed behind you stole the show. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hi! Thanks for the new video ๐Ÿ™‚ Ronja had a lot of trouble with stealing when we first got her (she would steal all my sandwiches) but now I simple say “leave it” and she’ll back away. The strange thing is, we only taught this behavior with the cats food, but now she even leaves my sandwiches alone.
    By the way, have you heard of Treibball? Seems like a really great urban hobby, you should do a video on it sometimes!:D

  3. Just wondering, are you a YouTube partner yet? I don’t really know much about the process but I think you can earn a little for being a YouTube partner. I think being a YouTube partner might get you more publicity, getting more views on your videos and most importantly, convey the message more towards the public. Good luck and thanks for making these videos!

  4. Oh my, I think my favourite part of this video is all four pups patiently lying down on the bed while you’re clicking and treating the other dog! Any tutorials on how to get that fabulous behavior? Hahaha. I’ve had to train Sparky and Pepper in separate rooms as none of them are this calm and patient yet!

  5. quick, probably silly question…after teaching your dog to leave your hand alone when you have treats, how do you get them to follow your hand as a lure later?

  6. Look up kikopups video on default calm behaviors and being home alone, I believe it’s called “capturing calmness”. Eventually your dog will learn that being calm is better than chewing the couch. Also perhaps if you catch him, give him something to do instead like a chew toy (my favorite is treat dispensing toys! Also known as interactive toys…too expensive? Try a kong with some all natural peanut butter, the sugar in the regular stuff isn’t very good for their teeth) Hope that helps!

  7. Just because they can’t mug your hand, doesn’t mean they can’t sniff at it. If you lure the dog with a treat, it’s more than likely to follow their nose or wonder where you’re taking it haha they’re much smarter than you think ๐Ÿ˜›

  8. Not necessarily, she has a video on how to use her methods without a clicker and instead using a verbal cue (such as “yes” or “yep”). If you have trained your dog with a clicker, you basically just go back to step one where you “charge” the word you want to use. So you’d say “yes”, pause, treat. After about 10 of these your dog should respond to the word just like he does with a click.

  9. Thank you for these videos! I got mugged right away and this video pin points what I need to do to get past it effectively. These videos are so helpful!

  10. context…they learn pretty qiockly that since she inst engaging with them, or giving them any cues, the click is irrelevant ๐Ÿ™‚ i used to wonder the same thing, but then i taught a puppy class with 6 puppies in a room all with clicks going on and they seemed to catch on pretty quickly that the only click that was important was the one coming from their owner…

  11. My puppy has learned this drill quite quickly; however, I am having a problem with her mugging with her paw post-click, as I set the treat down. What can I do to eliminate this?
