    DefaultMeet McKenzie

    This is our new chocolate baby McKenzie. She is now ten weeks and we adore her. She has mastered the sit and lay down commands very well and we're now working on COME and DROP IT. If anyone has any suggestions for these two commands please post. She doesnt seem to be catching on to these two as quickly as the first two. She enjoys playing keep away more than working with mommy.

    Hi McKenzie!!! What a sweetheart!!!

    You might want to check out the "Our Best Advice" thread in the Puppy Training section.

    Come... never say it unless you can enforce it or she's allreayd coming towards you anyway. This means MOST of your "come" training work should be done ON LEAD a whole heck of a lot before you start doing it off lead.

    Drop... allways have something to trade either a treat or another toy to get her to drop in the beginning.. failing that... we gently held Ender's top jaw until he dropped the toy. Best not to get into tug of war with whatever it is... that's why the "trade" method works pretty well

    Welcome to the forum! McKenzie is such a cutie!!! Good luck with her training...I don't have much advice at this time as I too am a new puppy parent (as of next week), so perhaps you can keep me posted on any tips!

    McKenzie is beautiful and I love the name
    If my wife and I ever decide to have kids, we were thinking of McKenzie for a girl

    I have always used just a few main commands that have worked great - you have to keep them short
    NO
    OK
    DROP
    SIT
    DOWN
    STAY
    COME
    OFF

    good luck with beautiful McKenzie...
