DOG TRAINING FUNDAMENTALS: LESSON 1


Hey, what’s up guys Oscar here with elevated canine together with documentary TV We are gonna start a training series called fundamentals of dog training and I hope you guys enjoy alright guys, so the first step in our dog training is Making sure that we charge our markers with what I mean by that is letting the dog know when he’s gonna get rewarded So in this case, we’re gonna use the word. Yes when we say the word. Yes we are gonna produce a reward it could either be kibble, you see here in my hand or it could be a tug have one back here and So basically as soon as I say the word, yes, that’s gonna produce the reward Why is that important? It is important because that is gonna let the dog know exactly what he did that is gonna get him paid So, for example, I’m gonna I’m gonna break Benny from his place right now. So if I go, okay, and if I go Benny place Yes, he knows that he’s gonna get rewarded he can come off of his place place Yes, alright, so we’re gonna start from the beginning place and How we charge this marker? alright So the first step is to make sure that you have a dog that is interested in you so we want a dog that is very Invested and wants to work for you so that you could teach the behaviors if you go outside and you’re trying to teach the dog to sit down come whatever you’re trying to teach them and Instead he’s sniffing looking at other dogs or whatever he’s doing it’s gonna be very difficult so we have to make sure that the dog is invested in us and he wants to work for us so in At this point I’m gonna show you how we start that So what you do is you’re gonna grab your dog come out put a leash on your dog just because Okay, and I’m gonna remove this place out of the way So if I have a dog say that sniffing like how he is right now He’s going around as soon as he focuses on me, and he looks at me. I’m gonna mark the yes, and I’m gonna pay him Three pieces of the kibble and I’ll stand still he’s looking at me. Yes, I pay again, obviously You know, we’ve done some training with this guy so he knows the program But we will take out other dogs, or we can show you Yes So here he’s invested in me. He wants to he wants to work Yes He’s being very focused on me. And that’s what you want from a dog All right So I’m gonna take out a puppy Next so you guys to see the the process with the dog that has no training. I have done no training with his dog We just got him in from Costa Rica and he’s a German Shepherd puppy. So we’ll bring him out and show you guys the process Alright guys, so this is my young dog, I just got him in from Costa Rica his name is hustle and We’re gonna show you guys a little bit about that engagement thing that we talked about again This is for dogs that are a little more food motivated or you know, some dogs are not treat motivated So you got to find other ways that they are gonna find satisfaction in whatever you give them tug Praise whatever it is in this case We’re using food just to show you guys the process, so I haven’t done any sessions with him yet He just got in a couple days ago So he as you can see, he’s already a very focused little pup, but you know So I’m gonna show you guys and again, we’re charging the marker as I go. So I’m gonna charge the yes marker at the same time that I’m building engagement. All right. Yes So he doesn’t even know what yes means, but I’m gonna produce a reward He looks at me yes Then I produced a reward I can even make him chase it a little bit standstill Yes, he looks at me I mark and I feed Yes, you got to make sure that you capture the right moment as soon as you say he looks at you Yes In this one, I’m gonna give them three treats So you kind of you could jackpot make sure that you give them more than one Yes, and you’ll see that there’ll be a lot more attentive rather than you just giving one piece of food You give three pieces of food. Yes, and then you’ll see how the dog becomes a lot more engaged than you Yes so the reason why I put him on leash is Just so if he was interested in a lot of other things I could stop him I’m not gonna correct them and I’m gonna stop him Yes All right, yes All right guys, so the reason why I’m using food to me It’s just the easiest thing to use when working because I can limit their food a little bit. Yes. I could feed them Through training and create that bond that engagement. Yes But you can see this little guy already picking it up, all right Yes, nice buddy good boy Yes, and then you just end your session done yeah boy good boy That’s a good All right, guys So just a little recap on this video that we shot Is is how to create engagement and charge your yes marker at the same time again? So the yes marker means you are gonna produce a reward so the dog looks at you you say the word Yes You reach into your pockets and you can give them one piece two piece three pieces of food Or if your dog is in food motivated, what you do is you’ll go. Yes, and you’ll bring out the tug Give your dog the tug and play play play play out You can give him another bite or you could put it away He stays focused on you. Yes, bring it out and again you are just Making sure that your dog is invested in you he wants to work for you instead of being into all these other things So I know it’s gonna be questions. What if your dog isn’t food motivated what if your dog isn’t ugh motivated? Well, you can create you can create that motivation you could bring it up by either cutting their food a little bit and maybe instead of feeding them in a bowl you feed them out of your hand create that engagement with you or You could even you know, if your dog you want your dog to be a little more tug motivated What you could do is you could attach it to a leash where he has to chase it play with them remember? It’s about the game Not necessarily the tug So how some dogs you know? Like like to pull on the tug you got to see what your dog likes every dog is different So if that’s for you to find out and there are some videos out there of other trainers Ivan Balaban of Michael Ellis Those are trainers that I look up to again I hope you guys enjoyed this if you guys have any questions, feel free to email us leave comments Make sure you subscribe you know Zeke is gonna be out here and let them know that you’re interested in some more dog training videos and we’ll do what We can I have I have a lot planned for you guys Shaping how to teach your dog to go to the bed how to walk next to you Recalls, so if you guys are interested, make sure you let Zeke know in the comments. Hope you guys have a good one You

  • Please keep bringing more dog training vids I’m getting my pup in 2 weeks and I can’t wait to have him and get to working


  • Very nice training video. teaching the markers.

    Method almost the same as I use

    (mine is ofcourse more effective :)).


    To be more serious one good suggestion for you would here be to teach the dogs their name.

    Calling their name and ofcourse rewarding reacting to its name by focussing is what you want as early as possible.


    And also always teach your pupils very early how to give food the proper way to their dogs.

    Which is important when luring; esp with Mallinois it is very nice that they don't bite your hand when you lure.


    But otherwise very nice video's!!!

  • Oscar does a great job explains and not complicating the training. That little Hussle is an adorable energetic pup💪🏼‼️

  • First of all…absolutely gorgeous animal!!! Those eyes! Second..what a great video! I'm preparing for a rott puppy. My first! It will actually be my 3rd rott but I've always adopted rescued adults w issues. This is my first opportunity with a brand spanking new slate and I want to do it right from the get go. I'll keep watching. Thank you!

  • It's so funny w the puppy, he looks like he's pushing buttons to get the treat. He's processing. He's like "wait… did my jumping on his leg get me that treat? I'll try it again! Nope that wasn't it" sits down…and he looks up in puzzlement and gets the treat and he's like "bingo! That's the magic treat dispensing button!" LoL

  • Not trying to talk shit but these dogs can be just as dangerous as pit bulls or any type of big dog and they have bsl laws for pit bulls?

  • Hello I have a question pls do help me on this ….

    I have a husky and he is 7 months old and bites a lot how do I control that .

  • Thanks for this video. We have a German Shepherd mix that has some serious abandonment issues that we are trying to get over. This is a very easy to follow guide and I appreciate it! 🙂

  • Great video ! Ill keep and eye out for new Vids hopefully you guys make one with German pups bitting and jumping issues (shark attack lol) thanks guys 🙂

  • I just subscribed👍Is Benny a Cane Corso? I just rescued a 4yr old corso & have a 17mth old corso. I would love to see training on the best methods of introducing

  • Any tips on what to do with a dog that won't move once his clipped-on leash is dropped from my hand? I've tried a long leash for training purposes outside, but once I drop the leash from my hand he refuses to move. He won't even sit. He does that indoors, as well. He has poor recall and I was told to use a long leash to pull him close when he ignores me when working on recall but he won't even walk away from me unless I hold the leash. When he's off leash he goes off fine and pretends to be deaf when I call, but when on leash and I'm not holding he just freezes and acts awkward. I've taken him out on a long leash to be out front with me while I worked in the landscape but rather than explore and have fun he simply stands still like he's lost his ability to function.

  • I like to keep my release cues separate from my marker words. If I praise my dog for heeling in public, I don't want him to respond by thinking "okay, now I can go ape-shit."

    Same with stay, if I praise for stay, I don't want him to respond by getting up. Especially when using food rewards, there's no reason to have the dog get up to receive his treat. Might be trickier if you're using a toy as a reward.
    It takes a bit longer initially, but I feel it's worth it.

  • Thank you !!! Been watching all kinds of videos & so far your the only one giving exact info on what to do .. Any tips or videos on potty training a 9wk Rottweiler

  • Family got a husky that is way hyper all the time, I almost never see him sit down, he's constantly pacing back and forth and jumping. How on earth do I get him to calm down and listen to me, even just for 1 second?! We've been letting him run around the yard and play with the other dog every day to get lots of exercise, but it isn't tiring him out at all. And he doesn't care about toys or food/treats…all he wants is to jump and run like crazy.
