    That is a very pretty dog.

    What is the purpose of “place” or maybe the better question is, when do you send a dog to “place”?  And what happens if “place” has to change in the future (ie. the original place is damaged/destroyed and has to be replaced)?  Do you typically have to start all over with them learning the new “place” or do most dogs get the concept quickly with a replacement “place”?  I suppose it might depend on each dog.  

    Btw, I don’t have a dog (I have had several dogs in the past and plan to get another one as soon as I have the time to devote – right now our lives are a little too hectic) but I so enjoy your training techniques.  It’s interesting to watch and you appear to really love what you do.  🙂

      You can use a “place” cue for lots of things, mainly whenever you’d want your dog to basically stay in one spot but can be comfortable doing so and holding it for long periods of time in advanced training. I.e. if company is over and not into dogs, or you’re at someone’s house and want them to be contained, etc. 

      You can also generalize this cue to different surfaces and beds but it you have to break it back down some for them to understand, especially if you’ve always worked on one specific surface. 🙂

    1. This is a great video thanks for making it simple. I was trying it using a leash but my dog just got excited to walk 2. You are totally hot I would like to buy dinner. WOO!

    Can we buy a trained dog that wont attack other dogs and listens to you even while he is out side

    • StrikeForce K9 says:

      King Hassan – Absolutely. But, be prepared to pay $$$$$ for it. (our “trained companion” level dogs start at $10k and require a 2-week transitional phase in which we come out everyday and help the new owners become very accustomed on how to handle their new dog. Also, this 2-week period helps the dog behind familiar with the diffent command tones and etc of the new owners. Then, we come out once monthly for 6-months, for tune-ups and troubleshooting of any issues or inconsistencies the new owners have.)

      Just find a reputable training outfit that specializes in this very field (producing fully trained dogs for the family home) and you’ll be good to go.

      Most K9 training outfits will also assist you in gouging you a trained dog if you plan it 12 months in so in advance. They’ll just produce the obedience and etc, and leave out the bitework.

      Now, if YOU ARE wanting bitework included, then that means you’re looking for a PPD (personal protection dog). In this case, it’s the same process, except the dollar value goes up TREMENDOUSLY for a very precision trained dog like you’re asking for. (around $15k starting, all the way up to $35k for a fully finished “110% reliable” PPD.)

      Hopefully this helps anyone in the future reading this.

    • Sage Jacobsen says:

      King Hassan you can train any dog to not attack other dogs and to listen while outside it just takes time

    • Jay Atwood says:

      Sage Jacobsen wrong. You can curb aggression from a dog but if the dog is genetically dog aggressive you can’t train that away

    • GamePlayHD says:

      or u train him by ur self hahaha

    • Jay Atwood says:

      Actually anyone who says yes is lying to you..it all depends on the breed of the dog. No matter how much you train a dog you can curb aggression but can’t train aggression out. its genetics

    • Lilly the Service Chihuahua says:

      I always heard that service dogs cost a lot of money but I didn’t know they cost that much money lol
      My chihuahua must be about a years worth of rent money lol

  8. NovaWolff says:

    I love these videos! I hope they help when I start to train my puppy!

  9. shad0wx0x0 says:

    i would like to know after how long do you stop giving treats ? and what if you stop giving treats and your dog stop listening to you because he sees he aint gettint treats anymore do you have to restart the whole process ??

    • Irene C says:

      +shad0wx0x0 I first started with treats, then replace them with toys and them without’em. Anyway you can stop giving him treats, but not suddently. I recomend you to do it giving them less and less treats, but slowly. You can also give them lots of mimes if they do it right.

      Hope I helped you! (Sorry if I made spelling mistakes, I’m Spanish)

    • shad0wx0x0 says:

      well thanks alot for your answer 😀 it was veerry clear, thanks for taking the time to do so, its going to help alot

    • Ella Hester says:

      At some point, the “free” moment becomes the reward – but that comes after a good while 😉

  11. obede reloaded says:

  12. YouTubeSearch ToxicVaccines ToxicFluoride, HIV HOAX says:

    Great dog training method!! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Carlos Rabaya says:

    I’ve been watching your videos for half a month. Just saw this now. and it is so AMAZING!!!

  14. Android Apple says:

    these videos are so well done, so well done actually that I took a pic of my dog being told to sit as my avi

  15. Ana Larson says:

    nicely done video, broken down well and clearly, I think I am trained now to train my pup, thanks.

  16. Richards Joby says:

    is the doggy eating ur fingers

  17. Sophie the service puppy Yay says:

    They did not train the puppy because she used a different dog at the end

    • gregory davis says:

      What I see is that they have continuity of training through all of their companions….

    • eric00214 says:

      that pup was still in training, for the purpose of the video they showed you the end result of the training mentioned that takes longer then the video would take to complete

    • Stew Meat says:

      Its like a cooking show.
      When they make the food and pull out a cooked one. If you want to watch the videos for 2

  18. Sandy Adams says:

    so what if they go to the place and don’t lay down? do you then say down?

  19. gregory davis says:

    I’m having a blast teaching my pup basic commands but you have definitely made it more rewarding for the both of us. Your videos have been helping tremendously. Thanks a bunch. I’m seeing a bunch of posts of folks wanting to buy a trained K9 but I know best that the journey best traveled is the one traveled together. Max and I trust each other and I know that makes for the best working relationship.
