    • Why is patience import when training?
      1. Keep your voice calm and don't lose your temper. The puppy will sense the aggression in your voice and become nervous. From there, you will NOT be successful in getting the puppy to learn anything.

    • Should you ever guide the dog to sit forcefully by using your hands?
      1. No, if you put the puppy in that position yourself you are not getting the puppy to learn. For it to be successful, they have to do it themselves.

    • Can you stop giving the puppy food rewards?
      1. Once you take away the treats, you have to either pet the puppy or do something that it likes to give it a sense of reward. Puppies/dogs don't do anything for nothing!
