Serious Puppy Training - SIRIUS Puppy Training Classic

Ian describes the well-worn path from cute and cuddly puppy to abandoned shelter dog.  If you get a puppy, it’s your responsibility to train it!

Ian’s Intro - SIRIUS Puppy Training Classic

Dr. Ian Dunbar explains the importance of starting your dog’s training in early puppyhood using fun, lure-reward methods.  Investing the time early on will give you control over your dog as it gets older, stronger and more distracted, and it’s the easiest way to ensure that you and your dog live long and happy lives together.

Introduction - Training Dogs with Dunbar

World renown animal behaviorist and veterinarian Dr. Ian Dunbar explains that we can learn a lot about dog behavior by watching puppies play together.

Developmental Priorities

The most urgent priority
is to continue socializing your puppy to a wide variety of people, especially children, men, and strangers. Well-socialized puppies grow up to be wonderful companions, whereas antisocial dogs are difficult, time-consuming, and potentially dangerous. Your puppy needs to learn to enjoy the company of all people and to enjoy being handled by all people, especially children and strangers.
