Evaluating Dogs: Planning Their Training

Evaluating dogs is key to planning their training. Meet Sweet Pea, the 5 month-old nut-ball. We’ve only done some light leash training for a couple of days to get her situated.

The video below will show you the exercise of evaluating this dog to see how responsive she’ll be to basic obedience hand signals. We haven’t worked on any of this at all until the camera was rolling. GOOD GIRL! Try this with your dog! (Bacon in your hand helps, if needed).

Think of it more like the slight-of-hand a magician uses. While evaluating dogs, keep them interested with snaps, fingers and a lot of movement.
